Does anyone have the chords for Cette Chanson Est Pour Vous (exactly) as performed by Fapy Lafertin on the album Swing Guitars (although it is mysteriously not included in the recent reissue)? It's a great tune that deserves to be played more often...

Looking for Vous Et Moi lyrics

Is there anybody out there that can help me locate the French lyrics for the Bosmans/Lefebvre song Vous Et Moi which Django recorded on violin (& guitar) in 1942?
Can't find it on the net.

Thanks!

I've checked a few other recordings of "Milko" , i.e. Colin Cosimini & Alfonso Ponticelli & those were actually "Swing 85" too. I guess they've learnt the tune from Moreno's recording & thus this error comes closer to an established fact.
