The video below is another version of the same song, in both English and French, along with French lyrics on the screen so you can sing along at home. 
 
RIP David Bowie. 1947 - 2016. 
 
We can be heroes, just for one day.
 
Or as the great man sang himself - "On peut être héros, pour juste une journée."
