Music Monday – Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants – Jimmy Buffett

Standard

I LOVE this song. I know it seems right now, that I have a very limited range of musical tastes, but I am going to blame pregnancy hormones and the decision that my husband and I have made… we are going to get a muralist to come in sometime this year and paint this song into a mural on my older daughters bedroom walls. I love the story, I love the imagery and I love that Princess Leia is mentioned (in a non-star wars fashion) – my third daughter being Leia. I promise to find something more adult friendly for the next freebie. This song has been playing around in my head for almost a week now! 🙂 Appologies for the video without lyrics… I couldn’t locate one… so the lyrics are below 🙂

Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants [Song for the little children]
By: Jimmy Buffett
1979

Now young Mister Moon flew away in the night
With his best friend Magnus right by his side
They soared through the Milky Way counting the stars
Once around Venus twice around Mars

Then they spied an island rise out of the sea
They fell back to Earth just as free as you please
The children all gathered the church bells did ring
Suddenly everyone started to sing

Chorus:
Chanson pour les petits enfants
Chanson pour tout le monde
Chanson pour les petits enfants
Chanson pour tout le monde

Queen of the island she welcomed them in
Asking ’em questions of where they had been
She offered ’em chocolate she offered them tea
They all took their seats in the top of a tree

And racoons brought wine and the

mice they brought cheese
Beautiful birds floated by on the breeze
From out in the oceans the dolphins began
Humming a tune that soon covered the land

Chorus:
Chanson pour les petits enfants
Chanson pour tout le monde
Chanson pour les petits enfants
Chanson pour tout le monde

So young Princess Leia brought coral and pearls
Gifts to the travelers from some other world
The Bushdoctor mixed up a magical spell
Swore them to secrecy never to tell

So young Mister Moon flew away in the night
With his best friend Magnus still right by his side
The sun was just rising, they’d be home by noon
Humming the words to this magical tune

Chorus:
Chanson pour les petits enfants
Chanson pour tout le monde
Chanson pour les petits enfants
Chanson pour tout le monde

Chorus:
Chanson pour les petits enfants (Song for children)
Chanson pour tout le monde (Song for the world)
Chanson pour les petits enfants (Song for children)
Chanson pour tout le monde (Song for the world)
