Petit fleur is an old song. I think from the 60's. It's French. Anyone knows where to find the lyrics? TIA, YO!!

Johan,
Petite Fleur may be on that "Blues from Baghdad" album you ordered. If not, it is on "Incredible! Kaleidoscope".

The only Petite Fleur I can remember was on a recording by Chris Barber's jazz band that my parents had with no words. Would that be the same tune?

The Chris Barber Petite Fleur with clarinet solo by Monty Sunshine was an old Sidney Bechet number. I've never heard words to it so probably not the one you want.

I'll try and find that oldy at my parents, I'll bet you the melodie is the same as Lindley's Petit Fleur. Maybe he wrote the lyrics on Sidney Bechets' music? I'll try and find out. Still no lyrics eh.................... Yo

Somebody must know the words to this one..... My French sucks, so I'll never find out just listening to it. Maybe some hints, where to search on the web?

Well Yo, perhaps someone else will have better luck than me. I have spent about 1/2hr searching using Google, Yahoo and Alta Vista with no joy. My French is probably worse than yours but I even tried the French version of Alta Vista.

Johan,
I went back and listened to "Petite Fleur" on "Incredible!Kaleidoscope" after my last post.I had forgotten it was in French.Strong Cajun rhythm in the way they do it.
Good luck in finding a translation.

David Lindley performed PETIT FLEUR (sic) on his album "El Rayo-X" (1981). Authorship is credited to "Feldthouse/Lindley." That would probably be David Lindley and Solomon Feldthouse, who performed together as members of Kaleidoscope.

Kaleidoscope also performed PETITE FLEUR on their albums—
"Incredible!" (1968; reissued 1991 and 1997).
"Blues From Baghdad: The Very Best of Kaleidoscope" (1995)
"Infinite Colours Infinite Patterns: The Best of Kaleidoscope" (2001).
"Pulsating Dreams: The Epic Recordings" (2004)

On those albums, the songwriting credit varies, but it always seems to be various band members.

I listened to some samples, but I was unable to understand any significant amount of the lyrics. (I am not that fluent in French.) The style is a Cajun waltz.

You can hear Kaleidoscope's recording of PETITE FLEUR on YouTube.

According to orthodox French grammar, the spelling should be PETITE FLEUR, that is, feminine.

I love the David Lindley Petit Fleur.

My favorite line is

The pig isn't me (Le cochon ne c'est moi) pretty garbled grammar, but a lovely song.
