a little song for contemplation, let's all sing along to this nice Frenchie song :)


MON PAYS BLEU

Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
(Me I left my blue country)
Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
Et je n'ai pas su lui dire adieu
(And I failed to say goodbye)

Petit enfant dans mon château
(Little child in my Castle)
J'aimais voir dormir la belle au bord de l'eau
(I loved to see sleeping beauty by the water)
La belle a grandit mais mon beau château
(The belle has grown up but my beautiful castle)
S'est envolé, oh volé, volé, volé, volé, vole...
(It's stolen, oh stolen, robbed, stolen, stolen, stolen...)

Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
Et je n'ai pas su lui dire adieu

Dans le grand jardin de mes parents
(In the large garden of my parents)
Je jouait près d'un chêne qui avait cent ans
(I was playing near an oak which was a hundred years old)
Si le chêne est là, le petit enfant
(If the oak is the little child)
S'est envolé, oh volé, volé, volé, volé, vole...

Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
Moi j'ai quitté mon pays bleu
Et je n'ai pas su lui dire adieu

Ma mère un jour a du partir
(My mother a day of the parting)
Au pays des souvenirs
(In the land of memories)
Je me souviens mais son sourire
(I remember but his smile)
S'est envolé, oh volé, volé, volé, volé, vole...
(it's stolen, oh robbed, stolen, stolen, stolen...)

I am assuming Fairport Convention counts as obscure oldies?
I am really into the Nordic, British, and Irish folk revivals :D

(a sign of a lot of work to do; putting it off)
that was nice in the days back then, you could look at the turning of the record, or get lost in the cover, now there's that plastic with just one goal, falling as soon as possible!

another fine Frenchie :mrgreen:


It's madness
To be always sitting around in sadness,
When you could be learning the Steps of Gladness.
You'll be happy when you can do
Just six or seven.
Begin today. You'll find it nice:
The quickest way to Paradise.
When you practice,
Here's the thing to know,
Simply say as you go:
I'll build a Stairway to Paradise,
With a new Step ev'ry day.
I'm going to get there at any price;
Stand aside, I'm on my way!
I got the blues
And up above it's so fair;
Shoes,
Go on and carry me there!
I'll build a Stairway to Paradise
With a new Step ev'ry day.
I'll build a Stairway to Paradise,
With a new Step ev'ry day.
I'm going to get there at any price;
Stand aside, I'm on my way!
I got the blues
And up above it's so fair;
Shoes,
Go on and carry me there!
I'll build a Stairway to Paradise
With a new Step ev'ry day.
