alex s French songs in English translation (36) RE: French songs in English translation 16 Aug 13

To add to what Will points out, there is also the fact that French words are (in general) longer than English - a French songwriter said that it's much easier for English writers to "fill the gaps", as it were. Also our English vocabulary is considerably larger than the French vocab, so we have more choice.
