Carnival always creates a special sort of spirit! It is a joy, hope for better life & finally sunny warm days. So, I have discovered this curious drinking song in one of “Mercure Galant” editions & share it with you. Those who know to play the piano might even perform it.
French Original text: “Que le temps soit laid, ou qu’il soit beau, c’est de quoy jamais je ne murmure. Il n’apartient qu’aux Beuveurs d’eau de se plaindre de la froidure. Pour avoir chaud dés le matin, le vray secret est de prendre du vin”.
Translation: ” No matter if the weather is nasty or nice. I will never grumble about that. It belongs not only to water Drinkers who complain about cold. To get warm in the morning a true secret is to have some wine.”
Happy Spring Spirit to all of you!
Vive le Roy! 🙂 🙂 🙂
