"Jole Blon" by Harry Choates, 1946 on Goldstar (#1314)

Cajun French:

É ha ha!

Jolie blonde, jolie fille
Chère petite, jolie couer
Tu m'as laissé pour ton aller
Avec un autre, mais chère petite
Dans l'pays de la Louisiane
Mais malheureuse

Oh, mais jolie couer
Ca t'as fait à ton pauvre papa
Tu m'as laissé, mais, chère petite
Mais moi tout seule
Mais malheureuse
Quelle espoir, mais quelle avenir
Mais moi j'peux avoir?

É hé hé!
Oh ha ha!
Chère petite, jolie blonde
Mais ca t'as dit, ma malheureuse
Quoi t'as fait? Tu vas avoir
Tu serais pitié


English:

E ha ha!

Pretty blonde, pretty girl,
Dear little pretty heart,
You left me, went away,
With another, my dear,
Into the countryside of Louisiana,
Oh my! I'm miserable.

Oh, my pretty heart,
What you did to your poor papa,
You left me, but, my dear,
Oh my! I am all alone,
Oh my! I'm miserable,
What hope, what future can I have?

E heh heh!
Oh ha ha!
Dear pretty blonde
Oh my! I told you I'm unhappy
What did you do? Have mercy, would you?
