Lucienne Boyer – Parlez-Moi D’Amour [1930]


Parlez-moi d’amour
Redites-moi des choses tendres
Votre beau discours
Mon cœur n’est pas las de l’entendre
Pourvu que toujours
Vous répétiez ces mots suprêmes :
“Je vous aime”

Vous savez bien
Que dans le fond je n’en crois rien
Mais cependant je veux encore
Écouter ce mot que j’adore
Votre voix aux sons caressants
Qui le murmure en frémissant
Me berce de sa belle histoire
Et malgré moi je veux y croire

{Refrain}

Il est si doux
Mon cher trésor, d’être un peu fou
La vie est parfois trop amère
Si l’on ne croit pas aux chimères
Le chagrin est vite apaisé
Et se console d’un baiser
Du cœur on guérit la blessure
Par un serment qui le rassure

UNFPA is the United Nations agency that deals with providing much needed family planning and reproductive health services in the developing world.  In 2002, the American government decided not to give a promised 34 million dollars to UNFPA.

In different parts of the country and without ever having met, two ordinary American women, Jane Roberts and Lois Abraham, asked the women of America to send $1 dollar each to UNFPA.

Nobody – not even UNFPA – thought it would work. But it did.  Soon a deluge of envelopes with single dollar bills began arriving at the UNFPA offices from women – and men – all over the United States.

From this an organisation called 34 Million Friends of UNFPA (www.34millionfriends.org) was formed and millions of dollars were raised to help families all over the world.

In 2009, the U.S. administration restored the funding to UNFPA but 34 Million…

Stephane Wrembel – Bistro Fada


About Honey Pies (great music, diverse styles from Dobro to Neo-Charleston, from Frizztext, to The Beatles and Johnny Cash)


She was a working girl
North of England way
Now she’s hit the big time
In the U.S.A.
And if she could only hear me
This is what I’d say.
Honey pie you are making me crazy
I’m in love but I’m lazy
So won’t you please come home.
Oh honey pie my position is tragic
Come and show me the magic
of your Hollywood song.
You became a legend of the silver screen
And now the thought of meeting you
Makes me weak in the knees.
Oh honey pie you are driving me frantic
Sail across the Atlantic
To be where you belong.
Honey pie, come back to me.
I like it like that,
Oohh, I like this kinda, hot kind of music.
Hot kind of music, play it to me,
Play it to me Hollywood blues
Will the wind that blew her boat
Across the sea
Kindly send her sailing back to me.
Honey pie you are making me crazy
I’m in love but I’m lazy
So won’t you please come home.
