Simeon
Do you remember the good years in Canaan?
The summers were endlessly gold
The fields were a patchwork of clover
The winters were never too cold
We'd stroll down the boulevards together
And everything round us was fine
Jacob
Now the fields are dead and bare
No joie de vivre anywhere
Et maintenant we drink a bitter wine
Brothers
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
Simeon
Do you remember those wonderful parties?
The splendor of Canaan's cuisine
Our extravagant, elegant soires
The gayest the Bible has seen
It's funny but since we lost Joseph
We've gone to the other extreme
No-one comes to dinner now
We'd only eat them anyhow
I even find I'm missing Joseph's dreams
Brothers
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
Simeon
It's funny but since we lost Joseph
We've gone to the other extreme
Perhaps we all misjudged the lad
Perhaps he wasn't quite that bad
And how we miss his entertaining dreams
Brothers
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
Simeon
To those Canaan days
Brothers
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
