AND TIME IS PASSING BY

           Words & Music by : Florian Lacour


O when you see that morning sun rising high up in the sky
Scratching with its beams the newly ploughed fields
And when the rivers start to shine along the peaceful mountains
When all is clear, mostly after such a heavy rain.

         See how they run the rich, the poor

         The blue-eyed one,the black-eyed one too

         Listen to,them wen they calm down

         They say they will get in the furture

         The things they’ve dreamt of, it is sure

         Du beau, du grand, du chaud, du dur

         That will bring them real peace of mind

         See how they run all at a time !

And when the birds high up in the  trees try to find some new reason
To fly around, spreading their songs
And while the paths which lead to towns,
Keep leading where they do
Bumpy and dusty, though charming too

See how they run the rich, the poor

         The blue-eyed one,the black-eyed one too

         Listen to,them wen they calm down

         They say they will get in the furture

         The things they’ve dreamt of, it is sure

         Du beau, du grand, du chaud, du dur

         That will bring them real peace of mind

         See how they run all at a time !

Could you believe when you are here, that you are really here,
Or do you suspect that you may be dreaming ,
And when the book right in your hand is falling on the floor,
What will you declare, but never more ?

See how they run the rich, the poor…. (refrain)
