Now playing on my French song playlist:

American jazz musician, Sidney Bechet wrote Petite fleur as an instrumental in 1952.

In 1959, French musician, Henri Salvador recorded the song with lyrics by Fernand Bonifay and Mario Bua.

Lyrics I like:

Petite fleur d’amour

Tu fleuriras toujours

Pour moi

Quand la vie

Par moments me trahit

Tu restes mon bonheur

Petite fleur


Little flower of love

You will always bloom

For me

When life

Betrays me at times

You remain my happiness

Little flower

I like to listen to songs en français, so I won’t forget the French I learned in school. Are you studying French? I hope you’ll find this series entertaining and helpful, too.

Got a French song I should add to my playlist? Let me know in the comments below.

Until next Music Monday, have a good week ahead! 🌸
