Lyrics
Il est bel et bon commère, mon mary.
Il estoit deux femmes toutes d'un pays,
Disans L'une à l'autre: avez bon mary.
Il ne me courousse, ne me bat aussy.
Il fait le ménage, il donne aux poulailles
Et je prends mes plaisirs.
Commère, c'est pour rire
Quant les poulailles crient:
Coco-da, petite coquette, qu'esse cy?

He is a good chap, my husband, I tell you, neighbour.
There were two women from the same region
asking each other "What's your husband like?"
he doesn't annoy me or beat me,
he does the housework and feeds the chickens
while I enjoy myself.
I tell you neighbour, it's a laugh
when the chickens cluck:
"Little coquette, cockle-doodle-do, What's this?"

pure talent :)
I haven't been as active in listening lately (far too much going on 'in real life' these days), but I'm so glad I caught this on the new music list.

A delight to listen to! :)
thank you!

There you go again Andreas
showing us how it's done. But I guess since you teach Choral for a living, it is appropriate that you would be doing that.

Another excellent example of bringing old and very good music into the 21st century. I have to ask you though, did you do all the voices on this song? Because if, as I suspect, you do them all, it is even more amazing.

Excellent work my friend on a very beautiful little song form mankind's past. Bravo to you, and as Feter has a habit of saying, deepest bow Sir.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Great idea
I love your mix of the really old and the new and now. it took a couple of listens to pull the lyrics out of the beatbox background, but I'm not that proficient in French, so it was a bit more difficult for me, I think. Is this all your voice. it is very impressive!

Your song was just what I needed to put a smile on my face. Thank you!

Mixing of the old and the new, it was really fresh and catchy. I would like to wake up to that song every morning!

Keep up the great work, and where can we hear more?
