Program Notes on Partons, la mer est belle by (Anonymous) :

Partons, la mer est belle is a traditional French folk song from Acadia.

It was especially popular during World War I.

It tells the sad but all too common story of fishermen who went out on a quiet sea at sunset, but were suddenly caught in an unexpected and deadly storm.

This score is an arrangement for alto voice with piano accompaniment.

It is set in the key of E flat Major.

For your greater enjoyment, this sheet music includes the complete lyrics in French (three verses and chorus).

Partons, la mer est belle

1. Amis, partons sans bruit,
La pêche sera bonne,
La lune qui rayonne
Éclairera la nuit.
Il faut qu'avant l'aurore
Nous soyons de retour
Pour sommeiller encore
Avant le lever du jour.

Partons, la mer est belle,
Embarquons-nous, pêcheurs,
Guidons notre nacelle,
Ramons avec ardeur.
Au mât hissons les voiles,
Le ciel est pur est beau,
Je vois briller l'étoile
Qui guide les matelots.

2. Ainsi parlait mon père
Lorsqu'il quitta le port,
Il ne s'attendait guère
À y trouver la mort.
Par les vents, par l'orage
Il fut surpris soudain,
Et d'un cruel naufrage
Il subit le destin.

Partons, la mer est belle...

3. Je n'ai plus que ma mère
Qui ne possède rien,
Elle est dans la misère,
Je suis son seul soutien.
Ramons, ramons bien vite,
Je l'aperçois là-bas,
Je la vois qui m'invite
En me tendant les bras.

Partons, la mer est belle...
