Le Mariage (Le Lendemain des Noces) Le long de ce rivage De ce coulant niisseau (bis) J'ai entendu les petits oiseaux Disons dans leur langage Que Dieu b6nise les jeunes gens Qui se met en m6nage. Le jour de nos noces Quelle habit prendrons nous (bis) Nous prendrons 1'habit toute blanche Couleur de r6jouissance Aussi le chapeau de souci Le cardon de souffrance. Le lendemain des noces Fallu faire son paquet (bis) En regardant la porte Avec un grand regret Regret, regret, cent fois regret L'endroit de ma naissance J'ai tant eu du plaisir pour toi Et tant de r6jouissance. Le pfere dit k sa fille Quis qui vous a forc6 (bis) Quis qui vous la fait prendre Malgr6 votre volont6 Je vous I'avait t'y pas toujours dit Que dans le mariage Fallut bien prendre le souci Quitter le badinage. Oh! Adieu, p6re et mtre Frferes, soeurs et parents (bis) Je m'y mets en manage Ce n'est pas pour un an Ce n'est pas pour un an ni deux Ni pour une semaine C'est pour le reste de mes jours J'en ferez ma demeure. The Wedding (The Day after the Wedding) Along the shore From the running brook (again) I heard the small birds singing Saying in their own language That God should bless the young people Who get married. The day of our wedding What attire shall we wear (again) We'U wear all white The color of joy Also the veil of care The ties of suffering. The day after the wedding We had to pack (our bags) (again) While looking at the door With regret Regret, regret, one hundred regrets The place of my birth I've had such pleasure with you And so much joy. The father said to his daughter (again) Who forced you To have taken him Against your will Didn'11 always tell you That in a marriage You have to take the anxieties Leave the bantering Farewell, Mother & Father Brothers, sisters and parents (again) I'm getting together It is not for one year It is not for one year or two Nor for one week It's for the rest of my days That I take this way of life.
