Les vieux
Song by Jacques Brel
Follow


  1. Les vieux ne parlent plus
    Ou alors seulement
    Parfois du bout des yeux,
    Même riches ils sont pauvres,
    Ils n’ont plus d’illusions,
    Et n’ont qu’un cœur pour deux.
    Chez eux ça sent le thym,
    Le propre, la lavande,
    Et le verbe d’antan,
    Que l’on vive à Paris,
    On vit tous en province
    Quand on vit trop longtemps.
    Est-ce d’avoir trop ri
    Que leur voix se lézarde
    Quand ils parlent d’hier?
    Et d’avoir trop pleuré
    Que des larmes encore
    Leur perlent les paupières?
    Et s’ils tremblent un peu
    Est-ce de voir vieillir
    La pendule d’argent
    Qui ronronne au salon,
    Qui dit oui, qui dit non,
    Qui dit “Je vous attends”.

    Les vieux ne rêvent plus,
    Leurs livres s’ensommeillent,
    Leurs pianos sont fermés,
    Le petit chat est mort.
    Le muscat du dimanche
    Ne les fait plus chanter,
    Les vieux ne bougent plus,
    Leurs gestes ont trop de rides,
    Leur monde est trop petit,
    Du lit à la fenêtre,
    Puis du lit au fauteuil,
    Et puis du lit au lit,
    Et s’ils sortent encore
    Bras dessus, bras dessous,
    Tout habillés de raide,
    C’est pour suivre au soleil
    L’enterrement d’un plus vieux,
    L’enterrement d’une plus laide,
    Et le temps d’un sanglot
    Oublier toute une heure
    La pendule d’argent
    Qui ronronne au salon,
    Qui dit oui, qui dit non,
    Et puis qui les attend.

    Les vieux ne meurent pas,
    Ils s’endorment un jour
    Et dorment trop longtemps,
    Ils se tiennent la main,
    Ils ont peur de se perdre,
    Et se perdent pourtant
    Et l’autre reste là,
    Le meilleur ou le pire,
    Le doux ou le sévère,
    Cela n’importe pas,
    Celui des deux qui reste
    Se retrouve en enfer.
    Vous le verrez peut-être,
    Vous le verrez parfois
    En pluie et en chagrin
    Traverser le présent.
    En s’excusant déjà
    De n’être pas plus loin.
    Et fuir devant vous
    Une dernière fois
    La pendule d’argent
    Qui ronronne au salon,
    Qui dit oui, qui dit non,
    Qui leur dit “Je t’attends”,
    Qui ronronne au salon,
    Qui dit oui, qui dit non,
    Et puis qui nous attend

Avec le temps
Avec le temps va tout s’en va
On oublie le visage et l’on oublie la voix
Le cœur quand ça bat plus
C’est pas la peine d’aller chercher plus loin
Faut laisser faire et c’est très bien

Avec le temps
Avec le temps va tout s’en va
L’autre qu’on adorait, qu’on cherchait sous la pluie
L’autre qu’on devinait au détour d’un regard
Entre les mots, entre les lignes et sous le fard
D’un serment maquillé qui s’en va faire sa nuit
Avec le temps tout s’évanouit
Avec le temps
Avec le temps va tout s’en va
Même les plus chouettes souvenirs ça t’as une de ces gueules
À la Galerie j’farfouille dans les rayons d’la mort
Le samedi soir quand la tendresse s’en va toute seule
Avec le temps
Avec le temps va tout s’en va
L’autre à qui l’on croyait pour un rhume pour un rien
L’autre à qui l’on donnait du vent et des bijoux
Pour qui l’on eût vendu son âme pour quelques sous
Devant quoi l’on s’traînait comme traînent les chiens
Avec le temps va tout va bien
Avec le temps
Avec le temps va tout s’en va
On oublie les passions et l’on oublie les voix
Qui vous disaient tout bas les mots des pauvres gens
Ne rentre pas trop tard surtout ne prend pas froid
Avec le temps
Avec le temps va tout s’en va
Et l’on se sent blanchi comme un cheval fourbu
Et l’on se sent glacé dans un lit de hasard
Et l’on se sent tout seul peut-être mais peinard
Et l’on se sent floué par les années perdues
Alors vraiment
Avec le temps on n’aime plus

Lowry was an English painter noted for his bleak northern industrial scenes, often featuring primitive figures that he called “matchstick men.” He also appears to hold the record for the most honors declined. He twice declined appointment to the Order of the British Empire—as an officer in 1955 and as a commander in 1961—and turned down a knighthood in 1968 and appointments to the Order of the Companions of Honour in 1972 and 1976.

This Day in History:
The Malbone Street Wreck (1918)

One of the deadliest train crashes in US history took place during a strike of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, some of whose members operated elevated trains for the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company (BRT). To keep service running, the BRT brought in inexperienced motormen to replace the striking workers. That evening, a five-car train derailed in the Malbone Street tunnel after negotiating a curve too quickly, killing 93. How many hours of training had the train’s operator received?

The Third Servile War

The Servile Wars were three slave uprisings—the last of which was led by the gladiator Spartacus—that took place in the later years of the Roman Republic. With a force of 90,000 gladiators, slaves, and peasants, Spartacus overran most of southern Italy in 73 BCE. He led his army north, hoping to release them to find freedom, but they refused to abandon their campaign. After Spartacus was killed in battle, the revolt was cruelly put down by Crassus and Pompey. How were the survivors punished? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Watch “Borodin In the Steppes of Central Asia – Svetlanov “In Central Asia” by State Academic Symphony Orch” on YouTube


Three main themes from the composition

In the Steppes of Central Asia (Russian: В средней Азии, romanized: V srednyeĭ Azii, lit. ‘In Central Asia’) is a symphonic poem (or “musical tableau”) composed by Alexander Borodin in 1880. It is dedicated to Franz Liszt.

BackgroundEdit

In the Steppes of Central Asia had been intended to be presented as one of several tableaux vivants to celebrate the silver anniversary of the reign of Emperor Alexander II of Russia, who had done much to expand the Russian Empire
eastward. The intended production never occurred, but the work has been
a concert favorite since its first performance, on 20 April 1880 (8
April Old style) in St. Petersburg by the orchestra of the Russian Opera under the conductorship of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.[1]

StructureEdit

The work depicts an interaction between Russians and Asians in the steppe lands of the Caucasus.
A caravan of Central Asians is crossing the desert under the protection
of Russian troops. The opening theme, representing the Russians, is
heard first; after it, the strains of an ornamented eastern melody on English horn, representing the Asians. The melodies eventually combine contrapuntally. Amid these two ethnic melodies Borodin inserts a “traveling” theme in pizzicato that represents the plodding hoofs of the horses and camels. At the end, only the Russian theme is heard.

InstrumentationEdit

The piece is scored for two flutes, oboe, cor anglais, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns in F, two trumpets in F, two trombones, bass trombone, timpani and strings.

Somewhat unusually, the two scores available via the IMSLP show different tempo markings at the start. The Eulenberg score is marked Allegretto con moto, whereas the Russian Muzyka score shows Allegro con moto.

Borodin also transcribed the piece for piano four hands.

Composer’s noteEdit

The composer provided the following description in a note to the score:

In
the silence of the monotonous steppes of Central Asia is heard the
unfamiliar sound of a peaceful Russian song. From the distance we hear
the approach of horses and camels and the bizarre and melancholy notes
of an oriental melody. A caravan approaches, escorted by Russian
soldiers, and continues safely on its way through the immense desert. It
disappears slowly. The notes of the Russian and Asiatic melodies join
in a common harmony, which dies away as the caravan disappears in the
distance.

Halloween (Scotland)

Many of the traditional customs associated with Halloween in Scotland are described in the famous poem of that name by the Scottish poet Robert Burns. “Pulling the kail” referred to the custom of sending boys and girls out into the garden (or kailyard) blindfolded to pull up the first plant they encountered; its size, shape, and texture would reveal the appearance and disposition of the finder’s future husband or wife. It was also believed that by eating an apple in front of a mirror, a young woman could see the reflection of her future mate peering over her shoulder.

According to the traditional account, Luther posted his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the castle church in Wittenberg, Germany—an event now seen as the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. Written in response to the selling of indulgences to pay for the rebuilding of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the theses represented an implicit criticism of papal policy and aroused much controversy.

He became a licensed Baptist preacher in 1833. The Millerite movement peaked in 1843 and declined rapidly after “the Great Disappointment”—the failure of the Second Coming to occur during the period predicted by Miller.

The Wexford Festival Opera is best known for its staging of obscure or seldom-heard operas from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Held in a small seaport community in the southeastern corner of Ireland since 1951, the festival has based its success on its choice of rare operas and relatively unknown singers, many of whom have later become quite famous. Three operas are staged during the two-week festival in Wexford’s Georgian-style Theatre Royal, built in 1832. The festival also features choral and symphonic concerts and a fireworks display.

Postcards

Postcards are a way to send message-bearing cards through the mail without an envelope. The earliest known picture postcard was sent in London to the writer Theodore Hook in 1840. Hook most likely created the hand-painted card and sent it to himself as a practical joke on the postal service, since the image on the card is a caricature of post office workers. Today, stamp collectors and deltiologists—collectors of postcards—distinguish between postcards and postal cards. What is the difference?

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old-fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee
If I, if I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you
For like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me
But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, “you must not ask for so much”
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, “hey, why not ask for more?”
Oh, like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
