Barcarolle
Jacques Offenbach Lyrics


Belle nuit, nuit d'amour,
Souris nos ivresses,
Nuit plus douce que le jour,
belle nuit d'amour!

Le temps fuit et sans retour
Emporte nos tendresses,
Loin de cet heureux sjour
Le temps fuit sans retour.
Zphyrs embrass,
Versez-nous vos caresses,
Zphyrs embrass,
Donnez-nous vos baisers!
vos baisers! vos baisers! Ah!

Belle nuit, nuit d'amour,
Souris nos ivresses,
Nuit plus douce que le jour,
belle nuit d'amour!

Night of stars, and night of love,
Fall gently o'er the waters,
Heav'n around below, above,
No more we'll heed the shore!
Floating thus in silver light,
Sing on! Oh earth's fair daughters
Love had ne'er an hour so bright,
In fabled days of yore.
The cadenc'd oar will rhyme
To the measure we sing,
Till even charmed Time,
Fold a moment his wing.
Wander on!
Till the dawn! Ah!
Night of stars, and night of love,
Fall gently o'er the waters,
Heave'n around below, above,
No more we'll heed the shore.
Night of stars and of love,
Ah! Gently fall o'er the waters
Heave'n around below, above!
Ah! Ah!

Belle nuit, ô nuit d'amour
Souris à nos ivresses
Nuit plus douce que le jour
Ô, belle nuit d'amour!
Le temps fuit et sans retour
Emporte nos tendresses
Loin de cet heureux séjour
Le temps fuit sans retour
Zéphyrs embrasés
Versez-nous vos caresses
Zéphyrs embrasés
Donnez-nous vos baisers!
Vos baisers! Vos baisers! Ah!
Belle nuit, ô, nuit d'amour
Souris à nos ivresses
Nuit plus douce que le jour,
Ô, belle nuit d'amour!
Ah! souris à nos ivresses!
Nuit d'amour, ô, nuit d'amour!
Ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah!

Richard's Trainwreck Film Review

I FOUND IT!!! I've had this piece stuck in my head for over a year and a half after hearing it on the radio, always wondering what it was and who composed it, and now I'VE FINALLY FOUND IT!!!! This is the happiest I've been in a long, long time. I can't believe it! Just as beautiful as I remembered it to be. What a wonderful day this turned out to be

@Sarah Hopper - "Barcarolle" is one of the reasons I like "Midnight in Paris" so much.

There is also a video on line of this piece being played to the lovely sight of gondolas moving through the canals of Venice. It IS the song of the gondoliers after all, it's beautiful. I'm learning to play it (violin). I never get sick of hearing it (even with my attempts to play it 😆).

The Barcarol also has a special place in my memory. At 3 yrs I picked out the first bar on a small very old organ - raced down to break the news & ask my Grandmother if we could take the organ home, thinking it would not have been used any more. A stern refusal was the result. I learnt piano later, but never thought to ask to be taught it which I regret, however, it's never too late so I will get the music & start @ 77 yrs!
Music has been a huge love all these years.
