Jean Roger Caussimon - Like in Ostende


Jean-Roger Caussimon - Comme à Ostende par LeGreumeuleu
Original Title: "Comme à Ostende"
We were seeing the sea horses
rushing head first
and breaking their mane
in front of the deserted casino

The barmaid was eighteen years old
and I who is old like the winter
instead of drowning into a glass
I had a walk in the spring
of her almond shaped eyes
Nor grey nor green
Nor grey nor green
Like in Ostende
And like everywhere
When on the town
Falls the rain
And you wonder
if it's usefull
and above all
if it's worth it
If it's worth it
to live your life

I left toward my destiny
But here a smell of beer
of fries and of mussels in white wine
lured me in a tavern
There were comics, all red-faced
who guffawed, who talked loudly
and the beer, it was served
way before you could ask for one again
Yes it was raining
Yes it was raining
Like in Ostende
And like everywhere
when on the town
falls the rain
And you wonder
if it's usefull
and above all
if it's worth it
If it's worth it
to live your life

We went arm in arm
in the district with shop windows
full of feminine presence
you want to buy when you are drunk
But here at the very end of the raod
arrived a barrel organ player
with a terrific old tune
to make you blubbe a great deal
so well that all the guys in the group
got lost
got lost
Like in Ostende
And like everywhere
when on the town
falls the rain
And you wonder
if it's usefull
and above all
if it's worth it
If it's worth it
to live your life

Mouloudji - We have to live

Original Title: " Faut vivre " Despite the big eyes of the void "It's to better eat you, child" And the silence...
