Seals & Crofts — Passing Thing lyrics

(lyrics and music by James Seals and Dash Crofts; French trans. by Susan Spitzer, 1969)
From the album GET CLOSER (1976).

She's not just another girl, she is from another world.
Bringing tidings of love and joy, not to just another boy.
She has got an angel's face, she is in, not out of place.
In this winter she was spring. Mom, you're not a passing thing.

Ce n'est pas une fille quelconque, elle arrive d'un otre monde.
Apportant la belle saison, amour et joi a ce garcon.
Elle a un visage d'ange, avec elle tout s'arrange.
En printemps elle change l'hiver. Maman, tu n'est pas ephemere.
[ Lyrics from: ]
