" Les Enfants de la Mer " is a favourite rowing-song :-
French Version.
" Dis-moi, mon vieux, dis-moi pour-
quoi Tu ris en douceur a part toi? " " C'est que je repete a part moi:
Chante, chante, L'ardeur vaillante, L'air calme et fier Des enfants de la mer !"
English Version.
" Tell me, my old friend, tell me why
You sit and softly laugh by your­self?"
" It is because I am repeating to my­self:
Sing, smg,
Of the valiant strength,
The calm, proud bearing
Of the sons of the sea !"
English Version. " For the pirate who goes on board There must be victory or death ! Hallo there, feather gently, Vive la France!
