Track Name: Sabine Turnaround
O toi jolie t-monde
T’après quitter ton nèg
Mais pour t’en aller
Et toi mais tu va voir
Tout ça que t’après me faire
T’après casser mon coeur
T’en aller si loin de ton nèg

O tu connais que moi
Je serai tout le temps là pour toi
Jamais t’oublier
O ‘coute bien mes paroles
Observe-moi bien t-fille
J’vas jamais te laisser
Tout seul dans les chagrins

O you pretty little thing
You’re leaving me, your man to go
And you’ll see, how that breaks my heart
When you go so far from me

O you know that I
Will always be there for you, never forget
O listen to my words, observe me well, little girl
I’ll never leave you, alone in misery
Track Name: Cote Clair Waltz
O démonter toutes mes misères
Je m’ai trouvé
Avec pas rien sur la terre

O il y a pas d’histoire dans le pays
Qui peut me virer
De marcher sur le Côte Clair

O J’ai tombé dans le tracas
J’ai pas connu qui
Le monde était après faire

Si tu va sur le Côte Claire
Tu vas apercevoir que les ombrages
Que tu vois c’est juste le vent dans les arbres




O I broke down my misery
And found myself alone with nothing on earth

O there’s no story in this land
That can sway me, from walking on the Clear Side

O I fell into trouble
I didn’t know what people were up to

If you walk on the Clear Side
You’ll realize that the shadows you see
Is just the wind blowing in the trees
Track Name: Granny Smith
O mama, t’as toujours dit à moi
Awe t’es mieux demander mon pardon
Que ma permission

O quoi faire c’est bien trop dur pour moi
O que tout quelq’un peut s’aimer
Comme moi je les aime

O mama priez pour mes enfants
O c’est malheureux
Quand je peux pas les soigner

Sauter de le chassis
Juste une heure après minuit
Elle faisait pas un bruit
S’echapper dedans la nuit
Sauter dans le boue
Pour traverser le bayou
Monter sur les chevaux
Pour chaser les chats-poteau

Couri après les bêtes
Avec un bon plum de chouette
Jouer en cachette
Après fumer ma cigarette
Mama a crié
Papa a fouetté
Petite soeur a braillé
Mais moi je m’ai sauvée




O mama, you always told me
It’s better to ask forgiveness
Than to ask permission

O why is it so hard for me
Can everyone can love them selves
As much as I love them

O mama, pray for my children
O it’s so sad
When I can’t take care of them

Jumped out the window
An hour after midnight
She didn’t make a sound
Escaped in the night
Jumped in the mud
To cross the bayou
Jumped on her horse
To go Pole-Cat hunting

Run after the cows
With an owl feather
Playing hide-and-seek
Smoking my cigarette
Mama screamed
Daddy whipped
Little sister cried
But I got away
Track Name: Rice Pump
O mais hier au soir
J’ai rencontré la femme je vais marier
Elle m’a porté tout le bonheur
Elle fait mon coeur battre comme le pompe du riz

O moi j’connais pas
Quoi c’est j’ai fait que toi tu peux m’aimer
O si le bon dieu le souhaite
Tu va jamais quitter ton nèg, chérie

C’est pas la peine, si tu t’en va chère
Tu va revenir être avec moi
Pour la balance de ta vie, chère
Moi j’vais donner toutes les richesses que j’ai


O last night
I met the woman I want to marry
She brought me all the happiness
She makes my heart beat like the rice pump

O I don’t know
What I’ve done, that you could love me
O if the good Lord will it
You’ll never leave me

It doesn’t matter, if you go
You’ll come back to be with me
For the rest of your life, dear
I’ll give you everything I have
Track Name: Si J’aurais Des Ailes
O oui partout éyou je vas
Mais ça me convient pas
O si j’aurais des ailes
Comme tout ses hirondelles
J’irais me reposer

J’irais me reposer
Auprès de toi la belle
Tout temps en regrettant
Nos jolies temps passés

Y’en a qui aiment les blondes
Et d’autres qui aiment les brunes
Mais moi j’suis pas comme ça
Moi j’aime bien la bouteille

Allons à la canteen
Pour boire et bien rire
Et bien se diverter
O nous et nos amis


O everywhere I go
Nothing convinces me
O if I had wings
Like the swallows
I’d go lay myself down

I’d go lay myself down
Next to you, my beautiful
Always regretting
Our great times passed

Some like blonds
Others like brunettes
But me I’m not like that
I like my bottle

Let’s go to the canteen
To drink and laugh
And amuse ourselves
Us and our friends
Track Name: Nezpiqué
Nezpiqué

O petite fille
C’est pas la peine
Que toi tu m’abondonnes
Tu me laissais sur le Bayou Vermilion

O c’est pas la peine petite fille
Que t’après m’abandonner
Navigué sur le Bayou Nezpiqué


O little girl
It doesn’t matter
That you’re leaving me
You left me on Bayou Vermilion

O it doesn’t matter
Little girl
That you’re abandoning me
I’m cruising the Bayou Nezpiqué
Track Name: Kalenda

Dans son grand bureau
Comme un vieux crapeau
Dans un baille de l’eau

Monté dans le bateau
Tombé dedans l’eau
Mouillé son capeau

Dansez Kalenda, G’doum G’doum


Dance Kalenda, G’doum G’doum

Mr. Mazureau
In his big office
Like an old toad
In a tub of water

Dance Kalenda, G’doum G’doum

Mr. Mazureau
Climbed in the boat
Fell in the water
Soaked his cape

Dance Kalenda, G’doum G’doum
