La Mer

5 Mar

I heard this song at the end of a Simpson’s ep and fell in love. It’s french, romantic and about the sea.  How can you go wrong?

Charles Trenet – La Mer

Bill Murray - The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

The sea
which we see dancing along the clear gulfs
has silver reflections.
The sea
has changing reflections
Under the rain.
The sea
To the summer sky’s confuses her white sheep
With angels so pure.
The sea,
Shepherdess of infinite blue.
Next to the ponds
Those tall wet reeds.
Those white birds
And those rusty houses.
The sea
Has rocked them
Along the clear gulfs
And with a love song
The sea
Has rocked my heart for life.
