Tres Amusant

As I'm preparing for a trip to France next week, a dear friend sends me the french children's tune heard around her house...courtesy of her daughter's violin practice.  Titled "J'ai du bon tabac."

My friend, having lived in France, was intrigued by the title.  Like why is her daughter playing a song titled "I Have Good Tobacco?"




We both agreed...thankfully she's taking violin rather than voice lessons.  Can you imagine the recital?

I have good tobacco in my snuff box
I have good tobacco and you will get none.

I have some fine and some well-shreded
But they are not for your ugly nose.

I have good tobacco in my snuff box
I have good tobacco and you will get none.
