Chanson / Elle a vendu mon coeur by Camille Mauclair

Elle a vendu mon coeur
Pour une chanson:
Vends mon coeur à la place,
ô colporteur
A la place de la chanson

Tes chansons étaint blanches
La mienne es coleur de sang:
Elle a vendu mon coeur
O colporteur
Elle a vendu mon coeur
En s’amusant

Et maintenant chante mon coeur
Sur les places, aux carrefours
Tu ferras pleurer colporteur
En racontant mon grand amour

Pendant qu’elle fera rire
Les gents à sa noce venus
En chantant la chanson pour rire
Pour chi elle ha mon coeur vendu

 

Song / She sold my heart for a song   translation by Hélène Lindqvist

She sold my heart for a song
Sell my heart at the square,
dealer,
in place of the song

Your songs were white
My song is the color of blood
She sold my heart,
dealer,
for the fun of it

And now my heart sings
at the squares, at the crossroads
You will make people cry,
dealer,
telling the story of my vast love

Meanwhile she will entertain the people
attending her wedding
singing the funny song
for which she sold my heart
