TOUJOUR GAI From the Broadway Show "Shinbone Alley" (1957) (Joe Darion / George Kleinsinger) Eartha Kitt (Broadway Production) - 1957 Tammy Grimes (TV Production) - 1960 Carol Channing (Animated Film Production) - 1971 My youth I shall never forget But there's nothing I really regret The years I have poured down the drain Have sparkled like gold in champagne It's cheerio my dearrio Prance and pirouette It's cheerio my dearrio There's a life in me yet Toujour gai, toujour gai, toujour gai, toujour gai Toujour gai, toujour gai, toujour gai I sing all my troubles away I don't care to cry with a king But with any old beggar I'll sing I'll dance in the sun or the shade To any old tune that is played I'll sing 'neath a bleary-eyed moon A rowdy and rollicking tune But no time for sleeping have I I'll sleep long enough when I die It's cheerio my dearrio Prance and pirouette It's cheerio my dearrio There's a life in me yet Toujour gai, toujour gai, toujour gai, toujour gai Toujour gai, toujour gai, toujour gai I'll sing away my troubles They'll vanish like bubbles I'll sing all my troubles away Toujour gai, toujour gai, toujour gai (Toujour gai, toujour gai, toujour gai) (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - April 2005)
