Sing it in FRENCH!
Thanks to Will Robichaux in Thibodaux, LA you can now sing this song in French via his 2011 translation.
” Félicitations pour tout c’ que t’as fait,
Félicitations pour tout ce que tu es,
Quand tu désespères, ne perds pas courage,
Pour moi, tu es l’étoile montante,
Félicitations – voilà c’ que je chante!”
Phonetic spelling attempt
” Fayleeseetahsyawn poohr toose kuh tah fay
Fayleeseetahsyawn poohr too suh kuh tu ay
Kawn tu dayzayspair, nuh pair pah koo rahdge
Poohr mwa tu es laytwahl mohntahnt
Fayleeseetahsyawn – vwalah skuh dzuh chahnt”
Congratulations for everything thing you’ve done,
Congratulations for everything you are
When you’re feeling down, don’t lose courage,
To me you are the rising star!
Congratulations – that’s what I’m singing about
Merci beaucoup, Will!
