Lyrics
Your kisses take me to Shangri-La
Each kiss is magic
That makes my little world a Shangri-La

A land of bluebirds, fountains
And nothing to do
But cling to a lover just like you

And when you hold me, how warm you are
Be mine, my darling
And spend your life with me in Shangri-La
For anywhere you are is Shangri-La  (Shangri-La, Shangri-La)

Català – Xangri-La
Els teus petons em porten a Xangri-La
Cada petó és màgic
Això fa del meu petit món un Xangri-La

Una terra de siàlids, fonts
I res a fer
Excepte aferrar-se a un amant com tu

I quan m’abraces, què càlid ets
Sigues meu, estimat meu
I passa la teva vida amb mi a Xangri-La
Ja que allà on ets és Xangri-La  (Xangri-La, Xangri-La)

Lyrics
It isn’t by chance I happen to be
The belle of the bar, the toast of Paris
Over the noise, the talk and smoke
I’m good for a laugh, a drink or a joke
I walk in a room, a party or a ball
“Come sit over here” somebody will call
A drink for my friends, a drink for them all
But how many times I stop and recall

Ah, the apple trees, blossoms in the breeze
That we walked among, lying in the hay
Games we used to play while the rounds were sung
Only yesterday, when the world was young

Wherever I go they mention my name
And that in itself is some sort of fame
“Come by for a drink, we are having a game”
Wherever I go, it’s so glad I came
The talk is quite gay, the company’s fine
There’s laughter and lights and glamour and wine
And thousands of men, some who are mine
But often my eyes see a different shine

Ah, the apple trees, sunlit memories
Where the hammock swung
On our backs we’d lie looking at the sky
Till the stars were strung
Only yesterday, when the world was young

Català – Quan El Món Era Jove
No és per casualitat que hagi resultat ser
La reina de la barra, la mestressa de París
Durant el soroll, la xerrada i el fum
Sóc bona per una rialla, una copa o una broma
Entro en una habitació, una festa o un ball
“Vine i seu aquí” algú cridarà
Una beguda pels meus amics, una beguda per a tots ells
Però quantes vegades m’aturo i recordo

Ah, els pomers, floreixent a la brisa
Entre els que caminàvem, estirats a la palla
Jocs que solíem jugar mentre els assalts eren cantats
Només ahir, quan el món era jove

Allà on vaig esmenten el meu nom
I això, en si mateix, és una mena de fama
“Anem a prendre una copa, jugarem”
Allà on vaig, estan contents que hagi vingut
La conversa és força animada, la companyia és bona
Hi ha rialles i llums i glamour i vi
I milers d’homes, alguns dels quals són meus
Però moltes vegades els meus ulls veuen una brillantor diferent

Ah, els pomers, records il·luminats pel sol
On l’hamaca oscil·lava
Ens estiràvem sobre les nostres esquenes mirant el cel
Fins que les estrelles eren penjades
Només ahir, quan el món era jove
