Description
I posted nothing for some months, but I always continue to listen to here many of the very good music...
I just come to write this little song for the birthday of the one who shares my life. I made the vocal track yesterday evening, at the last minute and regrettably with a good cold, but no choice, Brigitte's birthday is today !
Now, I send her a mail with the address of this song on MJ...

The translation is near the French lyrics.
Merry Christmas to all...

Lyrics
In my notebook, no need for a red letter day
sur le temps qui va je trinque pour toi
in the sands of time I fall for you (on the time which goes, I drink for you)

le coeur à la fête âge tendre tête de bois
light heart "young and stubborn"
l'amour qui nous jette l'un de l'autre dans les bras
love threw ourselves into each other's arms
d'un coup de baguette magique abracadabra
as if by magic... Abracadabra

depuis ce temps là tant d'années
since then so many years
tu es tout pour moi le nec plus ultra
you are everything for me, all the very best
je suis fou de toi à lier
I am crazy about you

je me fous du poids des années
I do not mind the load of time
faut que tu me crois même si je ne sais pas
you have to trust me even though I cannot
conjuguer le verbe aimer aimer
conjugate the verb 'to love'... to love...

dans mon agenda pas besoin de croix
In my notebook no need for a red letter day
sur le temps qui va je trinque pour toi
in the sands of time I fall for you (on the time which goes, I drink for you)

je trinque à l'existence âge tendre tête de bois
I drink to existence "young and stubborn"
je trinque à la naissance de nos sens en émoi
I drink to the appeal to our senses
je trinque aux différences l'un de l'autre dans les bras
I drink to the differences of each one into each other's arms

de vivre avec toi je ferais
si j'avais le choix un duplicata
s'il fallait tout recommencer
If everything had to restart
and if I had the choice
I would duplicate my life with you

on dit qu'on récolte ce qu'on sème
as people say, you reap what you sow
et ton amour m'envahit sur ce thème
and your love overwhelms me on the same theme
sais-tu combien je t'aime
do you know how much I love you

Brigitte is such a beautiful woman, judging by her picture, and by the inspiration she gave you.

Thank you for bringing tears to my eyes today! I hope my partner in life and I will experience the passage of time the way you have. Your writing is lovely. I can understand some of the French already, thanks to my studies...

Cheers to the both of you! Thanks for sharing this lovely gift with us!

Thats what this song means. Great Job Blaky. I've thought about doing some things for the wife myself and haven't yet. Thanks for some inspiration as I'll be out of the country on business for her 30th Birthday and something like this would help cheer her up. Just done beautifully, the arrangement, the words, the french.

France
Marc,
Our daughter was at the Université de Toulon et du Var for 12 months in 2002 as part of her undergraduate degree, so we spent a fair bit of time there. We have friends near Rouen who also had a holiday house in Marignac en Diois where we stayed for a month. I guess we have travelled pretty extensively in France (and Germany, where we have a few friends) as my wife Jan speaks both French and German (I get by in German best). Next year we'll hopefully be in French-speaking Switzerland for a while and then we're doing a 7 day walk from le Puy.
:)

Your beckoning my french-canadian side to surface, to tell you how much I enjoyed this.

Nice folksy sound. You can tell this one comes from the heart.

She's a lucky person to have someone that cares as much as you, to have taken the time to put this together as a wonderful birthday gift.

for something new from you. This is great - cold and all. I actually find that when I sing when tired or with a cold it's not so bad - just a different sound. Really nice production and bounce to this piece - and the lyrics are very touching. Well done!
Happy Holidays to you as well.
