Music Monday: Marieke

Now playing on my French song playlist:

Title: Marieke

Songwriter(s): Jacques Brel, Gérard Jouannest

Performed by: Jacques Brel

Lyrics I like:

Ay Marieke, Marieke, le soir souvent

Entre les tours de Bruges et Gand

Ay Marieke, Marieke, tous les étangs

M’ouvrent leurs bras de Bruges à Gand

Translation:

Oh Marieke, Marieke, often at night

Between the towers of Bruges and Ghent

Oh Marieke, Marieke, all ponds

Open their arms for me from Bruges to Ghent

🎶

Until next Music Monday, enjoy the week ahead!

I learned about this song from Don of Operas and cycling, and travel. For more information, read his insightful post: Jacques Brel’s Marieke in Brugge/Bruges
