A LA CLAIRE FONTAINE

A la claire fontaine m'en allant promener
J'ai trouve l'eau si belle que je m'y suis baine

cho: Lui ya longtemps que je t'aime,
Jamais je ne t'oublier.

C'est au pied d'un grand chene, je me suis fait secher
Sur la plus haute branche le rossignol chantait.

Chante, rossignol, chante, toi qui as le coer gail
Tu as le coeur a rire, moi je l'ai a pleurer.

J'ai perdu ma maitresse sans l'avoir merite
Pour un bouquet de roses que je lui refusai.

Je voudrais que la rose fut encore au rosier
Et que le rosier meme fut a la mer jete.
Et que le rosier meme fut a la mer jete
Je voudrais que la belle fut encore a m'aimer.

Note: Written French, unfortunately, should have accent marks, which my
word processor won't handle just yet. Sorry. RG

TRANSLATION:
By a clear stream I went for a walk
I found the water so clear that I had to swim there
It's been a long time that I've loved you
Never will I forget you.

It was at the foot of an oak that I dried myself
On the highest branch, a nightingale was singing.

Sing, nightingale sing, you have a happy heart
You have a heart for laughter; I have one for tears.

From Harmonious Companions, Meyers
