Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup

If I love you, what business is it of yours?”

 - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(28 Aug 1749 – 22 Mar 1832)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   I simply adore this great old classic. I'm unable to find a nice, mellow midi file that I like - not really - so just try the bonus video to hear Nat's beautiful voice.

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNzxH3zRU_I - Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup - Nat King Cole, 1954


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darling,_Je_Vous_Aime_Beaucoup:

"Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup" is a popular song with words and music by Anna Sosenko in 1935.

It was introduced in the film Love and Hisses by Hildegarde and charted by Hildegarde at # 21 in 1943.

The best-selling version of the song was recorded by Nat King Cole in 1954 which reached a peak Billboard position # 7 in 1955.

Deep River Boys with orchestra recorded the song in Oslo on August 24, 1956. It was released on the extended play Hello young lovers (HMV 7EGN 12). The stranger on the balcony in Bob Dylan's and Jacques Levy's song "Black Diamond Bay" from the 1976 album "Desire" says “My darling, je vous aime beaucoup” to the female character.

The deliberately bad French in the title (and used as a refrain along with "Wish my French were good enough") means "Darling, I love you a lot."

Although "Je vous aime" is grammatically correct, "I love you" in French is generally said "Je t'aime," incorporating the familiar address "te" rather than the formal (or polite) address "vous."

"Je ne sais pas" in the song means "I don't know." "Compris" (or "compree" as it is sometimes phonetically spelled in printed lyrics) means "understood." "Toujours" means "always." "Chérie" means "dear." "Très très fort" means "very very strong."

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 02/03/17:

A man called a refrigerator repair service. "My refrigerator isn't working."

"What kind is it?"

"It's a small one."

"Electric, gas or propane?"

"Propane."

"Ah! Then the problem is most likely vapor lock. You don't need a service call, just turn the refrigerator upside down for a few minutes to allow the lock to clear. Then put it back and all should be well."

A second call came, a few minutes later. "The least you could have done was to tell me to empty the fridge first!"

Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
Je ne sais pas what to do
You know you've completely
Stolen my heart

Morning, noon and night-time too
Toujours, wondering what to do
That's the way I've felt
Right from the start

Ah, Cheri!
My love for you is très, très fort
Wish my French were good enough
I'd tell you so much more

But I hope that you compris
All the things you mean to me
Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
I love you, yes I do

Wish my French were good enough
I'd tell you so much more

But I hope that you compris
All the things you mean to me
Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
I love you, yes I do

(Darling, je vous aime beaucoup)
I love you, yes I do
