| Mystery 1.
been travelling around the web, looking for sites that might feature old
songs such as the one my grandfather used to sing. He was born in
Louisdale, Nova Scotia in 1880, and spoke French at home. The song
is about a man (Papa Nicholas) who is the mother of one Lucien. It
is sort of an Acadien "I'm my own grandpa" and only makes sense if you
know the nuances of the Acadien French. I only have a few lines of
the song still in my memory, and would love to have it all again.
me if I murdered the French, but I do it phonetically. Any Ideas?
Thanks for anything.
beaux yeau, prend garde à tois,
Francais, Papa Nichola
Nichola c'est la mére de Lucien,
meme quand nous l'arrainge.
