Moustaki Georges – Joseph lyrics

Paroles et musique : Georges Moustaki
© 1969 Йditions Musicales Continentales Intersong
1
Voilа c'que c'est, mon vieux Joseph
Que d'avoir pris la plus jolie
Parmi les filles de Galilйe
Celle qu'on appelait Marie
2
Tu aurais pu, mon vieux Joseph
Prend
Re Sarah ou Dйborah
Et rien ne serait arrivй
Mais tu as prйfйrй Marie
3
Tu aurais pu, mon vieux Joseph
Rester chez toi, tailler ton bois
Plutфt que d'aller t'exiler
Et te cacher avec Marie
4
Tu aurais pu, mon vieux Joseph
Faire des petits avec Mari
E
Et leur apprendre ton mйtier
Comme ton pиre te l'avait appris
5
Pourquoi a-t-il fallu, Joseph
Que ton enfant, cet innocent
Ait eu ces йtranges idйes
Qui ont tant fait pleurer Marie
6
Parfois je pense а toi, Joseph
Mon pauvre ami, lorsque l'on rit
De toi qui n'avais demandй
Qu'а vivre heureux avec Marie
