Music Monday: Tous les Acadiens

Now playing on my French song playlist:

Title: Tous les Acadiens

Songwriter(s): Maurice Vidalin, Michel Fugain

Performed by: Natasha St-Pier

Lyrics I like:

Y a dans le sud de la Louisiane

Et dans un coin du Canada

Des tas de gars, des tas de femmes

Qui chantent dans la même langue que toi…

Tous les Acadiens, toutes les Acadiennes

Vont chanter, vont danser sur le violon

Sont Américains, elles sont Américaines

La faute à qui donc? La faute à Napoléon

Translation:

There in southern Louisiana

And in a corner of Canada

Lots of guys, lots of women

Who sing in the same language as you…

All Acadian (men), all Acadian (women)

Go sing, go dance on the violin

Are American (men), they are American (women)

Whose fault is it? Napoleon’s fault

🎶

Until next Music Monday, have a good week ahead.
