Subject: RE: Lyrics Req: Plaisir d'amour
The version above corrects the mis-spellings of the DT, and while it has a couple of typos of its own, it's clear enough. I have heard it sung a bit more completely in that the whole first section (Plaisir..J'ai tout.. Plaisir...) is repeated after the middle section (Tant...). I never did like the Baez version because she only used the first part of the tune ad mauseam with her English words. Do you want a translation of the song?? BTW, Martini was called 'Martini il Tedesco', "the German", because he was born in Freistadt, real name Johann Paul Aegidius Schwartzendorf.
