This calls for a song..."La Mer" by Charles Trenet...
(also sung by Bobby Darin as "Somewhere Beyond the Sea")

LA MER
paroles: Charles Trenet
musique: Cherles Trenet, Albert Lasry


La mer qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d'argent, la mer
Des reflets changeants sous la pluie

La mer au ciel d'été confond ses blancs moutons
Avec les anges si purs, la mer
Bergère d'azur infinie

Voyez près des étangs ces grands roseaux mouillés
Voyez ces oiseaux blancs et ces maisons rouillées

La mer les a bercés le long des golfes clairs
Et d'une chanson d'amour, la mer
A bercé mon coeur pour la vie

If you go to the sea, you must try la Bouillabaisse...
