Written By: CatwomanofV on 02/03/19 at 8:28 am

Lyrics of the movie "Carmen Jones" are based on Georges Bizet's opera Carmen.

From Google, opera lyrics:

"L'amour est un oiseau rebelle (Habanera)

love is a rebellious bird
L'amour est un oiseau rebelle

that no one can tame
Que nul ne peut apprivoiser

And it is in vain that it is called
Et c'est bien en vain qu'on l'appelle

If he agrees to refuse
S'il lui convient de refuser

Nothing is done, threat or prayer
Rien n'y fait, menace ou prière

One speaks well, the other is silent
L'un parle bien, l'autre se tait

And that's the other one I prefer
Et c'est l'autre que je préfère

He did not say anything, but he likes me
Il n'a rien dit, mais il me plaît

Love (× 4)
L'amour (× 4)

Love is bohemian child
L'amour est enfant de bohème

He never, never, knew any law
Il n'a jamais, jamais, connu de loi

If you do not love me, I love you
Si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime

And if I love you, take care of yourself
Et si je t'aime, prends garde à toi

Beware
Prends garde à toi

If you do not love me, if you do not love me, I love you
Si tu ne m'aimes pas, si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime

Beware
Prends garde à toi

But if I love you, if I love you, take care of yourself
Mais si je t'aime, si je t'aime, prends garde à toi

Love is bohemian child
L'amour est enfant de bohème

He never knew a law
Il n'a jamais jamais connu de loi

If you do not love me, I love you
Si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime

And if I love you, take care of yourself
Et si je t'aime, prends garde à toi

Beware
Prends garde à toi

If you do not love me, if you do not love me, I love you
Si tu ne m'aimes pas, si tu ne m'aimes pas, je t'aime

Beware
Prends garde à toi

But
Mais…"

"Dat's Love" from "Carmen Jones", lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein
"ove's a baby that grows up wild
And he don't do what you want him to
Love ain't nobody's angel-child
And he won't pay any mind to you
One man gave me his diamond stud
And I won't give him a cigarette
One man treats me like I was mud,
And what I got, dat man can get.
Dat's love, dat's love, dat's love, dat's love
You go for me and I'm taboo
But if you're hard to get, I'll go for you
And if I do, then you are through
Oh, my baby, that's the end of you
... So take your cue
Oh, Don't say I didn't tell you true
... I told you truly, if I love you,
Dat's the end of you!
When your love bird decides to fly
There ain't no door that you can close
She just pecks you a quick good-bye
And flicks de salt from her tail and goes
If you listen then you get taught
And here's your lesson for today
If I choose you, then you get caught
But once I got you, I go away
Dat's love..."

I hope I placed the wording clearly.
