V'la l'Bon Vent
Traditional Canadian Lyrics
Performed by Michael Mitchell


This song is available on Michael Mitchell's Canada is for Kids: Volume 1.

This song is over 300 years old and was sung by the Voyageurs and Coureurs de Bois who roamed throughout Canada when it was a new nation.  Such songs kept up their spirits when they had to paddle for up to 18 hours a day, and it also helped them to keep the oars working in rhythm, making everyone's work easier.

V'la l'bon vent, v'la l'joli vent
V'la l'bon vent m'amie m'appelle
V'la l'bon vent, v'la l'joli vent
V'la l'bon vent m'amie m'attend

Derrier chez nous y'a t'un etang
Derrier chez nous y'a t'un etang
Trois beaux canards s'en vont baignant

Trois beaux canards s'en vont baignant
Le fils du roi s'en va chassant

Le fils du roi s'en va chassant
Avec son grand fusil d'argent

Avec son grand fusil d'argent
Visa le noir, tua le blanc

Visa le noir, tua le blanc
Oh fils du roi, tu est mechant

Oh fils du roi, tu est mechant
D'avoir tuer mon canard blanc
