lyrics

Trois beaux oiseaux du Paradis,
(Mon ami z’il est à la guerre)
Trois beaux oiseaux du Paradis
Ont passé par ici.

Le premier était plus bleu que ciel,
(Mon ami z’il est à la guerre)
Le second était couleur de neige,
Le troisième rouge vermeil.

“Beaux oiselets du Paradis,
(Mon ami z’il est à la guerre)
Beaux oiselets du Paradis,
Qu’apportez par ici?”

Three lovely birds from Paradise
(My belov’d is to the fighting gone)
Three lovely birds from Paradise
Have flown along this way.

The first was bluer than Heaven’s blue
(My belov’d is to the fighting gone)
The second white as the fallen snow
The third was wrapt in bright red glow.

“Ye lovely birds from Paradise
(My belov’d is to the fighting gone)
Ye lovely birds from Paradise
What bring ye then this way?”
