John's in love with Joan, Joan's in love with Jim,
Jim's in love with someone who's not in love with him;
What was meant to be, must be - 
C'est la vie, c'est la vie.

Life's a funny thing when it comes to love -
You don't always conquer the one you're dreaming of.
As they say in old Paree, 
"C'est la vie, c'est la vie."

Those who fall in love agree
It's the unsolved mystery
If your big romance cannot be
You'll find someone new, cherie.

There goes happy Jane; here's the reason why -
She just found a sweetheart, but no one's gonna cry
Though she stole his love from me,
C'est la vie, c'est la vie,
C'est la vie, c'est la vie.
