Jacques Bertin - The house on the edge of the road


Original Title: "La maison au bord de la route"
It's a song for the childhood
To sing for a long time
With words like "hope"
and "sunset evening"

The house on the edge of the road
Under the cheery trees
Smokes to dismiss the doubt
Like a dog lying down
Like a dog lying down

The neighbors who are old and wise
Spoil the children
The lady talks of the Mage Kings
and him of the Uhlans

One does not believe in it
But we dream, during the month of may, the gardens
Are full of rumours and of sap
And of love in june
And of love in june

I lived in another life
Or in some past
In that house, that life
And that dreamt time

The hostess is blond with periwinkly eyes
Color of the curtains
When the weather is fine, the house leans
the shoulder in the water
the shoulder in the water

Nearby, there is a basilica
Between two windmills
One climbs up in the authumn crocus
And the sailor songs

Covered in bouquets When we go back home
Each engaged
We sing to follow the slope
and destiny
and destiny

The house is like a beast
Hidden in a corner
Sweet and warm like the head
At the hollow of the hand

The hostess went over the barrier
Carried by the lover
And the scene fills with proud joy
The eyes of the children
The eyes of the children

It's a song for childhood
To sing for a long time
With words like "hope"
and "sunset evening"

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...
