Lyrics

Du labrador jusqu’aux Florides
En suivant le m? chach? b?
Les hommes attendaient Valentine
Un num? ro sur un ticket.
De Fort Duquesne? la Balise
De la Balise? Fort Huilier
Les hommes avaient mis la chemise
Et ils attendaient sur le quai.
Ces prostitu? es ces orphelines
Toutes celles que Paris envoyait
Ils les appelaient Valentine
C'? tait un pr? nom qu’ils aimaient.
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Elles arrivaient en f? vrier
Seul’ment si le vent le voulait
A peine? terre sit? t mari? es
C'? tait Valentine Day
Elles d? barquaient avant l'? t?
De partout comme si’l en pleuvait
Le choix n'? tait pas la beaut?
C'? tait Valentine Day
Seulement les marins s’en souviennent
Peut-? tre parce que les marins
Ont de l’eau sal? e dans les veines
On sait que la mer se souvient.
Quand les vaisseaux de la royale
Hissaient en haut le pavillon
De Fort Prudhomme? Lauderdale
C'? tait la folie des violons
La journ? e de Valentine Day
Etait une foire aux catins
Aujourd’hui traduite en fran? ais
On l’appelle «La saint Valentin».
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Elles embarquaient? la Rochelle
Emportant tout ce qu’elles avaient
La robe qu’elles portaient sur elles
C'? tait Valentine Day
Elles arrivaient pour? pouser
Des hommes qu’elles n’aimeraient jamais
Elles n’avaient pas le choix d’aimer
C'? tait Valentine Day
Elles descendaient de la passerelle
Alors tout le monde se taisait
Et quand elles ouvraient leurs ombrelles
Les hommes applaudissaient
C'? tait l’amour et pas l’amour
C'? tait un peu tout c’qu’on voulait
Vive le roi et? bas la cour
C'? tait Valentine Day.
Valentine Day.
(Merci? Julie pour cettes paroles)

Lyrics translation

From labrador to Florida
Following the m? chach? b?
Men were waiting for Valentine
A number? ro on a ticket.
Fort Duquesne? tag
From the Beacon? Strong Oil Tanker
The men had put on the shirt
And they were waiting on the dock.
These whore? it's these orphans
All the ones Paris sent
They called them Valentine
C'? was a pr? name they loved.
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
They came in f? February
Only if the wind wanted it
Barely? sit land? Big t? BSC
C'? tait Valentine Day
They d? were sailing before the? t?
Everywhere as if it were raining
The choice isn't? can't you just shut up?
C'? tait Valentine Day
Only sailors remember this
Maybe? be because sailors
Have salt water? E in the veins
We know that the Sea remembers.
When the ships of the Royal
Hoisted up the pavilion
Fort Prudhomme? Lauderdale
C'? silence the madness of violins
At journ? it's Valentine's Day.
Was a cat fair
Today translated into French? ais
It is called "Valentine's day".
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
Valentine Day
They were boarding? La Rochelle
Taking away everything they had
The dress they wore on them
C'? tait Valentine Day
They were coming for? pouser
Men they would never like
They had no choice but to love
C'? tait Valentine Day
They came down from the bridge.
Then everyone would shut up
And when they opened their umbrellas
The men applauded
C'? tait love and not love
C'? shut up a little bit everything we wanted
Long Live The King and? down the yard
C'? tait Valentine Day.
Valentine Day.
(Thanks? Julie for those words)
