The Comedy is Over

Fini La Comedie/ C'est Finili La Comedie is a popular French song originally sung by Dalida and is composed by Palmer, Ricanek, La-Bionda and Delanoe. I was introduced to it during my chorale attempts back in high school. Instantly, I fell in love with it. Here's a performance by the Philippines Madrigal Singers featuring it as arranged by one of the most respected figures of Philippine chorale scene, Prof. Robert Delgado.

Here's an English translation of the lyrics:

Everything is over,
The comedy is over
Everything began
As a brilliant representation
In blue scenery
Of a suburban theatre
(Where) there was only the two of us

And we loved each other so long
Almost forgetting about time
Which in all our stages
Transformed pleasures into a pain
And time has defeated us
It is glad
To see us, both on different sides
As strangers
Nothing more connects us
Except threadbare words
The scenery has not changed
But the actors have nothing more to play
Time to lower the curtain.

Everything is over
The comedy is over
We part well
(And) Eternity is ours.
We are alone in the world
On waves left our from love
But nothing more remain of our forbidden feelings.

And time has defeated us,
It is glad
To see us, both on different sides
As strangers
Nothing more connects us
Except threadbare words
The scenery has not changed
But the actors have nothing more to play
Time to lower the curtain.

Everything is over
The comedy is over
Everything began
As a brilliant representation
In pink scenery
Of a suburban theatre
(Where) there was only the two of us

Everything is over
The comedy is over...
