Track Name: T'en r'Souveins-tu?
Lyrics and translation (below):

T'en r'souveins-tu?

T'en r'souveins-tu, d'chutte séthée-là?
Ch'tait un dînmanche dé Juîn
J'tions dans l'parleux; la f'nêt', ouvèrte
À maîntchi, laîssant v'nîn
L'odeu d'la violette et dé roses
Dans tout l'appartément.
Lé jour baîssait, toute la natuthe
S'endormait trantchillement.

T'en r'souveins-tu, d'chutte séthée-là?
Jé crai qu’tu t’en r’souveins
Ta pensée 'tait auvec tan chant
Et comme tu chantais bein!

Eune pétite brise, v'nant du gardîn,
Souôl'vait les longs ridgeaux,
Ouîs-tu l'critchet, lé j'va d'Saint George,
Tchi criyaient dans un clios?
Vis-tu pâsser eune caûque-souothis,
Tchi volait tout d'travèrs?
Entendis-tu un êtcherbot
Pâsser l'long des rôsièrs?

T'en r'souveins-tu, d'chutte séthée-là?
Jé crai qu’tu t’en r’souveins
Ta pensée 'tait auvec tan chant
Et comme tu chantais bein!

T'en rappelle-tu, qu'i' faîsait sombre
Mais n'tait pas niet acouo -
Pas justément - quand j'alleunmis
Les chandelles sus l'piano?
Vis-tu qu'lus lueu n'tait pon bein forte
Quand tu c'menchis à jouer,
Et qu'Georges et mé j'nos assiévînmes
Tout près, pour êcouter?

T'en r'souveins-tu, d'chutte séthée-là?
Jé crai qu’tu t’en r’souveins
Ta pensée 'tait auvec tan chant
Jé sai qu’tu t’en r’souveins
Et comme tu chantais bein!

TRANSLATION:

Do You Remember?

Do you remember that evening
It was a Sunday in June
We were in the parlour
The window half open letting
The fragrance of violet and roses
Into the whole room
The daylight was fading, all nature
Was falling asleep peacefully

Do you remember that evening?
I believe you do remember
Your thoughts were only with your song
And how well you sang!

A slight breeze coming from the garden
Lifted the long curtains
Did you hear the cricket, the grasshopper
Making their cries in a field?
Did you see a bat pass
Flying right across?
Did you hear a beetle
Passing along the rose bushes?

Do you remember that evening?
I believe you do remember
Your thoughts were only with your song
And how well you sang!

Do you recall that it was getting dark
But wasn't yet night
Not quite – when I lit
The candles on the piano?
Did you see that their light wasn't very bright
When you began to play
And that George and me we sat down
Close by to listen?

Do you remember that evening?
I believe you do remember
Your thoughts were only with your song
I know you do remember -
And how well you sang!
