c'est si bon 

Song of the Day: c'est si bon, 1947, henri betti, louis armstrong  #197. 

Here's my a translation of the French part:

It’s so good! 
To go anywhere 
Arm in arm 
Singing songs 

It’s so good! 
To say sweet words to each other 
Little nothing-at-all’s 
But that say a lot 

Seeing our delighted faces
The passers-bye on the street envy us

It’s so good 
This little feeling 
It's better than a million, 
Because it's oh so good.
