Charles Trenet – La Mer lyrics

La mer
Qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d'argent
La mer
Des reflets changeants
Sous la pluie

La mer
Au ciel d'ete confond
Ses blancs moutons
Avec les anges si purs
La mer bergere d'azur

Pres des etangs
Ces grands roseaux mouilles
Ces oiseaux blancs
Et ces maisons rouillees

La mer
Les a berces
Le long des golfes clairs
Et d'une chanson d'amour
La mer
A berce mon coeur pour la vie

    The sea that we see danse along the clear gulfs has silver reflection that change in the rain.
    The sea under the summer sky confuses her foamy waves with angels so pure the sea shepherdess of an infinite blue.
    Look near the ponds these great moist reeds
    look these white birds and these rusty houses.
    The sea has cradled them along the clear gulfs and with a love song the sea has cradled my heart forever.
