French tunes/songs for The George Inn (Dec 3 2012)


Recommended Posts

"On bouge's Chris and Caroline sing a few French songs at The George. A few others know the melodies.


So more folk can join in with the lyrics, at Dec session, Caroline has kindly written up two of the songs for printing out and or handing around before.


But I cannot find the dots to go with one of them no matter where I look. The song concerned "Tant que j'avais des noisettes - Les amants sont bienvenues

Allons au bois"

allegedly goes back to 19thc (Album Auvergnat, 1853). (a rather free translation might be:

I had plenty of lovers when I had my (hazel)nuts - To the woods! To the woods!


To make life simple it is in attached Word file with the other song (which also seems to have some double-entendres)


Also a couple of others including L'horloge de grande-mere"


grateful for any help on dots.
