Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The French Song (Quand le soleil dit...)
What a coincidence.
I just bought a CD by Kerry Christensen (the Utah yodeler who's lived and learned in Europe), and the CD has this song on it in German. I've done a little digging, and I've found it in English, German and French on YouTube.
Here's the URL for a site which is selling an old copy of it. (I hope it works.)
(Do a search for 'when the sun' and you'll see it.
According to it, the date was 1936, and the title is 'When the sun says goodnight to the mountain.' I mention this because the title varies. The sun can say goodnight, goodbye or even hello.
I transcribed the words from the old Comedy Humorists recording (prob. 1930's) and from the Susan McCann recording (1980's?)
I'm going to post them separately so they are easier to spot.
The old Comedy Humorists recording shows that there is no law that says you have to play this song with a 'country' background.
