Clair de Lune ("In Shining Moonlight")

Au clair de la lune, Tonight by the moonlight,
Mon ami Pierrot, Pierrot, my dear friend
Prête-moi ta plume A note I would soon write,
Pour écrire un mot. If a pen you'd lend.
Ma chandelle est morte, Burnt out is my candle,
Je n'ai plus de feu. and my fire is cold
Ouvre-moi ta porte unlock your door handle
Pour l'amour de Dieu! for God's love of old.
 
Au clair de la lune, In the moonlight bright then,
Pierrot répondit: Pierrot answered me:
Je n'ai pas de plume, I do not have a pen,
Je suis dans mon lit. I'm in bed, you see.
Va chez la voisine, Go next door, the neighbor
Je crois qu'elle y est. does not yet retire,
Car dans sa cuisine. In the Kitchen labors
On bat le briquet. Someone at the fire.
 
Au clair de la lune, By the moonlight bright then,
L'aimable Arlequin This fool went and knocked
Frappa chez la brune, At the brunettes door, when.
Qui répond soudain: Through the door she asked
Qui frapp' de la sorte? Who is knocking now, here?
Il dit à son tour: In return he spoke:
Ouvrez votre porte, Open up your door dear,
Pour le dieu d'amour. For the love of God.
 
Au clair de la lune, Only by the moonlight
On n'y voitque peu; Not much can be told.
On chercha la plume They search for a pen now
On chercha le feu. Then the fire behold.
Cherchant de la sorte Searching this and that way
Ne sais c'qu'on trouva; Who knows what they'll find.
Mais je sais qu'la porte This much tho' I can say,
Sur eux se ferma They closed the door behind

Gonna lay down my sword and shield  
Down by the riverside  
Ain't gonna study war no more.  

This Land is Your Land

Chorus:
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me
 
Solo:
As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me
 
Chorus:
I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me
