La Paloma Adieu (La paloma adieu)

English translation

La Paloma Adieu

Versions: #1#2
In the evening, my mother used to sing to us as children
The story of a lost boat and of a white bird
One day the boat sails straight into the ocean
And standing alone, her heart full of love, waits a girl
The sailor tells her, “Don’t forget that I love you”
Winter and spring, and there she remains
When she sees a white bird alight beside her
Bearing a few words folded under its wing
 
Adieu la paloma, adieu, you are the one I love
My life is passing, but try not to cry
Oh my love, adieu!
Adieu la paloma, adieu, you are the one I love
My life is passing, but try not to cry
Oh my love, adieu!
 
She presses the pretty white bird fast against her heart
And the two of them embark upon the ocean
Love never dies, for I’ve seen two doves
Fly towards the sea as evening falls
Adieu la paloma, adieu, you are the one I love
My life is passing, but try not to cry
Oh my love, adieu!
Adieu la paloma, adieu, you are the one I love
My life is passing, but try not to cry
Oh my love, adieu!

La paloma adieu

Le soir ma mère nous chantait quand j'étais enfant
L'histoire d'un bateau perdu et d'un oiseau blanc
Un jour le bateau s'en va droit vers l'océan
Et seule, le cœur plein d'amour, une fille attend

It is strange to see an English translation with the title:
La Paloma Adieu
A Spanish and a French word.
