Monique Lyr Add: Mudcat singaround songs NOT in English (130* d) RE: Lyr Add: Mudcat singaround songs NOT in English 31 Jan 21


Sung by Vikki-YorkshireYankee on 2020/08/24. Translation from Google translate and much editing by me.

"Étoile des neiges" is the French version of the German song "Fliege mit mir in die Heimat". Austrian Franz Winkler composed this song in 1930. There are several covers of this song in several languages such as "Étoile des neiges" in French and "Forever and Ever" in English
ÉTOILE DES NEIGES (French)

Dans un coin perdu de montagne un tout petit savoyard
Chantait son amour dans le calme du soir
Près de sa bergère au doux regard.

Étoile des neiges, mon cœur amoureux
S'est pris au piège, de tes grands yeux
Je te donne en gage, cette croix d'argent
Et de t'aimer toute la vie, j'en fais serment

Hélas, soupirait la bergère, que répondront nos parents
Comment ferons-nous, nous n'avons pas d'argent
Pour nous marier dès le printemps

Etoile des neiges, sèche tes beaux yeux
Le ciel protège les amoureux
Je pars en voyage, pour qu'à mon retour,
À tout jamais, plus rien n'empêche notre amour.

Alors il partit vers la ville et ramoneur il se fit
Sur les cheminées dans le vent et la pluie
Comme un petit diable noir de suie

Étoile des neiges, sèche tes beaux yeux
Le ciel protège les amoureux
Ne perds pas courage, il te reviendra
Et tu seras bientôt encore entre ses bras

Et comme les beaux jours refleurirent, il s'en revint au hameau
Et sa fiancée l'attendait tout 1à-haut
Parmi les clochettes du troupeau

Étoile des neiges, les garçons d'honneur
Vont en cortège portant des fleurs
Par un mariage finit mon histoire
De la bergère et de son petit Savoyard
SNOW STAR

In a remote place of the mountain a very young Savoyard
Was singing his love in the calm of the evening
Near his sweet gazed shepherdess.

Snow star, my loving heart
Got trapped with your big eyes
I give you as a pledge this silver cross
And I swear that I'll love you all my life.

Alas, sighed the shepherdess, what will our parents answer
How will we do, we have no money
To get married in the spring

Snow star, dry your beautiful eyes
The sky protects the lovers
I am going on a trip, so that on my return,
Nothing will ever prevent our love

So he left for the city and he became a chimney sweep
On the chimneys in the wind and the rain
Like a little devil black with soot

Snow star, dry your beautiful eyes
The sky protects lovers
Don't lose heart, he will come back to you
And you will soon be in his arms again

And as Spring bloomed again, he returned to the hamlet
And his fiancée was waiting for him up there
Among the bells of the herd.

Snow star, the groomsmen
Are going in procession carrying flowers.
By a marriage ends my story
Of the shepherdess and her little Savoyard
