There´s a beautiful French song:

Johnny, tu n´est pas un ange / ne cois pas que ca m´derange...

Words: Francis Lemarque

Music: Les Paul

Very well interpreted by the band Bratsch

I think it´s from some musical or theater play - anybody knows anything about this song?

Thanx, Daniel

I thought it was a song by Hollander, made famous by Marlene Dietrich. Hollander was associated with the writing of Falling in Love Again, Blonde Women, Lola and other Marlene Dietrich goodies.

Yeah, it sounds Hollander-like, but can´t be, since it says Les Paul on the cover. I remember another song: Johnny, wenn du Geburtstag hast (Johnny, when it´s your birthday) by Marlene Dietrich, but that´s not it.

Any more suggestions???

Not by Piaf- it was written for her in 1953 by Francis Lemarque, as posted above. Music? Les Paul made a popular arrangement, but I am not sure that he was the original composer.
See www.paroles.net, the site for all songs French.

this is a Romanian folk song called "Sanie cu zurgălăi",

The song was composed by Richard Stein (Romanian) in 1937! The song "inspired" Les Paul (the copyright dispute had been won by Stein)! Piaf and Vaya con Dios also sang on this beautiful melodical line "Johnny, the boy for me"! However, the song is Romanian 100%. Enjoy!
