À la claire fontaine ………Thomas Gazut

À la claire fontaine

À la claire fontaine
M’en allant promener
J’ai trouvé l’eau si belle
Que je m’y suis baigné

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime,
Jamais je ne t’oublierai

Sous les feuilles d’un chêne,
Je me suis fait sécher.
Sur la plus haute branche,
Le rossignol chantait.

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime,
Jamais je ne t’oublierai

Chante, rossignol, chante,
Toi qui as le cœur gai.
Tu as le cœur à rire…
Moi je l’ai à pleurer.

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime,
Jamais je ne t’oublierai.

J’ai perdu mon amie
Sans l’avoir mérité.
Pour un bouquet de roses
Que je lui refusai…

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime,
Jamais je ne t’oublierai.

Je voudrais que la rose
Fût encore au rosier,
Et que ma douce amie
Fût encore à m’aimer.

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime,
Jamais je ne t’oublierai.

 

 

At the clear fountain

 

At the clear fountain

Going walking

I found the water so beautiful

That I bathed

 

I have loved you for a long time,

I will never forget you

 

Under the leaves of an oak,

I dried.

On the highest branch,

The nightingale was singing  

I have loved you for a long time,

I will never forget you

 

Sing, nightingale, sing,
Thou hast the heart gay.
You have the heart to laugh …
I have to cry.

 

I have loved you for a long time,

I will never forget you

 

I lost my friend

Without having deserved it.

A blossom of roses

I refused him …

 

I have loved you for a long time,

I will never forget you

 

I would like the rose

Was still a rose,

And my sweet friend

Was still to be loved.

 

I have loved you for a long time,

I will never forget you
