Georges Brassens - Happy the one who like Ulysses


Original Title: "Heureux qui comme Ulysse"
Music from the movie with Fernandel.
The first sentence comes from a sonnet by Joachim Du Bellay

Happy the one who, like Ulysses,
Has made a beautiful trip
Happy the one who, like Ulysses,
Has seen hundred landscapes
And then has found back
After many crossings
The country of the green years

By a little summer morning
When the sun is singing in your heart
How beautiful freedom is
Freedom
When we are feeling better here than elsewhere
When a friend makes happiness
How beautiful freedom is
Freedom

With the sun and the wind
With the rain and the fine weather
We were living happily
My horse, my Provence and I
My horse, my Provence and I

Happy the one who, like Ulysses,
Has made a beautiful trip
Happy the one who, like Ulysses,
Has seen hundred landscapes
And then has found back
After many crossings
The country of the green years

By a little summer morning
When the sun is singing in your heart
How beautiful freedom is
Freedom
When hardships are over
When a friend dries up your tears
How beautiful freedom is
Freedom

Lashed by the sun and wind
Lost in the middle of the ponds
We will live happily
My horse, my Provence and I
My horse, my Provence and I
