Default la mer. (the sea)

every time i hear this song .. i feel optimistic.. the way the sea and its beauty is described is perhaps one the things that i failed to notice day by day with depression... here is the song... im sure u guys have heard it before.La mer
The Sea

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd_no...eature=related

YouTube - Chantal Chamberland Jazz

La Mer.
(charles trenet)

Qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs

That one sees dancing along the clear gulfs
A des reflets d'argent
Has silver reflections
La mer
The Sea
Des reflets changeants
Changing reflections
Sous la pluie
Under the rain

La mer
The Sea
Au ciel d'été confond
In the summer sky merge
Ses blancs moutons
Its white sheep
Avec les anges si purs
With such pure angels
La mer bergère d'azur
The sea, shepherdess of azure
Infinie
Infinite

Voyez
See
Près des étangs
Close to the ponds
Ces grands roseaux mouillés
These large wet reeds
Voyez
See
Ces oiseaux blancs
These white birds
Et ces maisons rouillées
And these rusted houses

La mer
The Sea
Les a bercés
Has rocked them
Le long des golfes clairs
Along the clear gulfs
Et d'une chanson d'amour
And with a song of love
La mer
The Sea
A bercé mon cœur pour la vie
Has soothed my heart for life

I've never heard of it before, but it's cool...though, I think it would be better with a woman singing it because women sound better than men to me.

I also think it would be better in english :P
