À la claire fontaine, Group of Seven, Marius Barbeau, Theodore C. Blegen, Université de Moncton's Male Choir, voyageurs, words and music
This song, a ballad, is about a young man who walks by a clear fountain. The water (eau[f]) is so beautiful that he bathes (se baigner) in it. He lets himself dry (sécher: dry up) under the leaves (feuilles[fp]) of an oak-tree (chêne[m]). On the highest (la plus haute) branch, a nightingale (un rossignol [m]) sings. He tells the nightingale to sing (chanter) because he has a happy heart (tu as le cœur gai). You feel like laughing (rire), but I feel like crying (pleurer). I lost my lady friend (ma maîtresse) without deserving to (sans l’avoir mérité). Because I refused (Je lui ai refusai) [to give] her a bouquet of roses (la rose[f]).
f: feminine, m: masculin, p: plural

This song reminds me of Lady and the Tramp when they were on their date.. it’s weird, because in reality the montage was sung by (very stereotypical) Italians, but the feeling is the same, to me.
Often, persons from another culture hear the essence of a piece of music. This may be what happened. Thanks for writing,
