Zazie : "Être et avoir"

French song: to understand the differences in use between "to be" and "to have" in French/ les auxiliaires ÊTRE et AVOIR - different from English. être = used to express WHO we are, someone's essence. avoir = used to express WHAT we possess, what is TEMPORARY. Example/ exemple : I am 20 years old = J'AI 20 ans (literally: "I HAVE 20 years"). In French, age is expressed by the auxiliary verb "to have", unlike English because French people consider that age doesn't define them since living beings constantly age.
