Thanks..seems i have asked about this song before. It might be from arcadia. Is it safe to assume it could be about cod? I would like to include on cod cd.
It is so pretty.

Sorry, but there's nothing about cod in the song. It's about a fisherman, but just tells of the death of his fisherman father during a storm, and the stars which guide all sailors. Also, the poverty of his mother, as he's her only support.
Very sweet little song, and rather sad.
If you type in ' Lyrics 'Partons, le mer est belle' on Google, you can see all the verses and chorus in French there.

By the way, 'cod' in French is 'la morue', or 'le cabillaud'.

And if you type "chanson de morue" into Google you get a whole dripping crateful of songs.

In spite of having studied French at Uni, I didn't even get the gender of 'mer' right! It's 'la mer' of course!!

Fun fact - mar (sea) is masculine in Spanish, unless you're a sailor, when it becomes feminine.

In Latin, of course, all sailors are feminine, as are farmers (Ave Nauta!)
