Monique Lyr Add: Mudcat singaround songs NOT in English (130* d) RE: Lyr Add: Mudcat singaround songs NOT in English 27 Apr 21


Here is the song Lois sang
J’AI PASSÉ DEVANT TA PORTE (Cajun French)
(aka MON CŒUR T'APPELLE)

J’ai passé devant ta porte,
J’ai crié, "By-bye la belle."
Y a personne qu’a répondu,
O ye-yaie, mon cœur me fait mal.

Je m’ai donc mis, oui, à observer,
Moi, j’ai vu une petite lumière allumée,
Y a quelque chose qui me disait
J’aurais pleuré,
O y’yaie, mon cœur me fait mal.

Quand j’ai été cogner à la porte,
Oui, ils ont (r)ouvert la porte,
Moi, j’ai vu des chandelles allumées
Tout autour de ton cercueil.
I WALKED PAST YOUR DOOR
(aka MY HEART ACHES FOR YOU)

I walked past your door,
I called out "By-bye, beautiful girl."
Nobody answered,
O ye-yaie, my heart aches.

I started, yes, to observe/have a closer look,
I, I saw a little light on,
Something was talking to me,
I would have cried,
O ye-yaie, my heart aches.

When I went to knock on the door,
Yes, they opened the door,
I, I saw candles lit
All around your coffin.
Very interesting article on Early Cajun Music.
