C'est en vain qu'il prie, La Vierge Marie ; La vague en fureur Roule la barque du pecheur.
Aux feux des etoiles
D'un navire, un soir,
II crut voir les voiles,
II sourit d'espoir;
Mais loin de l'espace,
Ou le vaisseau passe,
La vague en fureur
Roule la barque du pecheur.
The two last lines of each
CHANSON MARITIME. French Version. Venez, venez, matelots a la ronde, Approchez-vous ici, venez tous
ecouter, Oh ! vous qui avez deja fait le tour
du monde, II faudra ici venir vous delasser,
Cette chansonnette est pour nos
marins. Que chacun repete ce joyeux refrain,
Tra la, la, la, la, &c.
Tous nos braves marins que l'univers
revere, Qui la nuit et le jour vont pour fendre
les flots, Pour servir leur patrie ils quittent
pere et mere, Rien d'egal au courage des bons
matelots ! Garcons et fillettes, vivent nos marins ! Que chacun repete ce joyeux refrain,
Tra la, la, la, la, &c.
Vous vaillants serviteurs de Triton, Et vous vaillants heros qui montiez
le vengeur, Ceux de la Belle Poule, honorable
fregate, Dans les plus grands dangers mon-
triez votre valeur. En fin tout le monde dira ce refrain, Tra la, la, la, la, &c.
LE RETOUR DU MOUSSE. French Version. Nous etions entre ciel et terre, Et dans la nuit, et dans la nuit,
In vain he prays To the Virgin Mary j The wave in fury Rocks the fisherman's bark.
By the light of the stars One night, of a vessel He thinks he sees the sails, He smiles with the hope ; But far away where The vessel passes, The fury of the wave Rocks the fisherman's bark.
verse are repeated.
SEA SONG. English Version. Come, come, sailors, all come round, Approach, come all and listen,
Oh ! you who have already made the tour of the world,
You must come here to amuse your­selves,
This little song is for our sailors.
Let each one repeat this joyous
refrain, Tra la, la, la, la, &c.
All our brave sailors that the universe
reveres, Who night and day go to cleave the
waves, To serve their country leave father
and mother, Nothing equals the courage of the
good sailors ! Boys and girls, long live the sailors ! Let each one repeat the joyous
refrain, Tra la, la, la, la, &c.
You valiant servitors of Triton,
And you valiant heroes who ven­geance take,
Those of the Belle Poule, honourable frigate,
In the greatest dangers showing your valour.
In fact every one will repeat,
Tra la, la, la, la, &c.
THE CABIN BOY'S RETURN.
English Version. We were between heaven and earth, And in the night, and in the night,
