Music Monday: Ça fait rire les oiseaux

Now playing on my French song playlist:

Title: Ça fait rire les oiseaux

Songwriters: Daniel Vangarde, Jean Kluger

Performed by: La Compagnie Créole

Lyrics I like:

Si y a du gris dans ta nuit, des larmes dans ton cœur

La musique est là pour ça

Y a toujours une mélodie pour des jours meilleurs

Allez, tape dans tes mains, ça porte bonheur

C’est magique, un refrain qu’on reprend tous en chœur

Et ça fait rire les oiseaux, ça fait chanter les abeilles

Ça chasse les nuages et fait briller le soleil

Ça fait rire les oiseaux et danser les écureuils

Ça rajoute des couleurs aux couleurs de l’arc-en-ciel

Ça fait rire les oiseaux oh, oh, oh, rire les oiseaux

Translation:

If there is gray in your night, tears in your heart

The music is there for that

There is always a melody for better days

Come on, clap your hands, it brings good luck

It’s magic, a refrain that we all take up in chorus

And it makes the birds laugh, it makes the bees sing

It chases away the clouds and makes the sun shine

It makes the birds laugh and the squirrels dance

It adds colors to the colors of the rainbow

It makes the birds laugh oh, oh, oh, the birds laugh

Until next Music Monday, have a good week ahead. 👏🏼🍀🐥🐝 ⛅️ 🐿 🌈 🎶

Wednesday Postcard: Saint Martin

Bonjour! This week’s carte postale was sent to me by one of my friends during her visit to the Caribbean island of Saint Martin:

St. Martin is an island nation divided between France and The Netherlands. The French side is on the north while the Dutch side, Sint Maarten, is on the southern half.

On September 6, 2017, St. Martin suffered one of the worst natural disasters of its history with the passage of Hurricane Irma. The St. Martin Tourist Office President states, “St. Martin is working hard on the sustainable reconstruction of the island.”

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!
