Song Lyric Spammage Yay!

When I was browsing Lilith's interests tonight on her info page, I happened to notice one we share that I have never mentioned - I didn't know she was a fan of Daniel Lanois, too! And while these lyrics really don't pertain to how I feel about Lilith, I thought I would share them with her as this is my favorite song by the man. I've been known to play my Acadie CD rather incessantly when the muse is demanding his music.

Jolie Louise

Ma jolie, how do you do?
Mon nom est Jean-Guy Thibodeau
I come from east of Gatineau
My name is Jean-Guy, ma jolie.
J'ai une maison a La Fontaine
Where we will live if you marry me
Une belle maison a La Fontaine
Where we will live, you and me
Oh Louise, ohoh, ma jolie Louise.

Tous les matins au soleil
I did work 'til work is done;
Tous les matins au soleil
I did work 'til work is done.
And one day the foreman
Said "Jean-Guy, we must let you go"
Et puis mon nom, y'est pas bon
At the mill anymore
Oh Louise, I'm losing my head, I'm losing my head.

My kids are small, four and three
Et la bouteille, she's mon ami.
I drink the rum 'til I can't see
It hides the shame Louise does not see.
A carousel turns in my head
And I can't hide, no no no no,
And the rage turned in my head
And Louise, I struck her down, down on the ground
I'm losing my mind, I'm losing my mind.

En septembre '63, the kids are gone and so is Louise.
Ontario they did go, near la ville de Toronto.
Now my tears they roll down, tous les jours, oh oh oh oh,
And I remember the days and the promises that we made,
Oh Louise, ma jolie Louise, ma jolie Louise.
