    I don't support whaling, but I love this song. So I just pretend they're saying "peek at la baleine" and it's a research ship taking photos.

  7. Grim_ 801

    I support biting the whale

  8. BigDave's Ramblings

    Love these guys, great album!

  9. Ryan Murray

    I love the French language. I'd have written this in French but I don't trust my spelling. Such a beautiful language. In the hands of The Dreadnoughts... true art.

  10. Donald J. Duck

    "Poke the whale"

  11. Anael Santiago

    You guys are great. Congratulations from Brazil ♥️

    Pour retrouver ma douce amie To find my sweet love again,
    Oh mes boués, ouh là ouh là là, Oh my boys, oh la la.

    Pique la baleine, joli baleinier Lance the whale, jolly whalerman,
    Pique la baleine, je veux naviguer. You lance the whale, I'll steer.

    Aux mille mers j'ai navigué. I have sailed a thousand seas.

    Des mers du nord aux mers du sud. From the northern seas to the southern.

    Je l'ai retrouvée quand j'm'ai noyé. I found her again when I drowned.

    Dans les grands fonds, elle m'espérait. In the deeps, she was longing for me.

    Tous deux ensemble on a pleuré. Together we cried.

    En couple à elle j'm'suis couché. In her embrace, I lay down.

    I wanted so badly to be a whaler when I was a kid. In some ways, I still wish it were a viable lifestyle. At least I can still enjoy songs of whaling.

    To find my sweet love again,
    Oh my boys, oh la la.
    To find my sweet love again,
    Oh my boys, oh la la,

    Lance the whale, jolly whalerman,
    You lance the whale, I'll steer.

    I have sailed a thousand seas.

    From the northern seas to the southern.

    I found her again when I drowned.

    In the deeps, she was longing for me.

    Together we cried.

    In her embrace, I lay down.

    Oliver Cromwell Did Nothing Wrong

    Oh so it's all a really rude sex joke, sweet

    Scott Wiggins

    Thanks so much for the words. Translation was very helpful too!

    Listening to French I'm pretty clueless about the meaning, I do ok with reading it (fluent in Portuguese, a smattering of Latin, and Spanish helps as well)

    ciko rambo

    thank you

  39. bwooom

    listened to this song and now im a sailor on a whaling ship and also ive forgiven the french language

    Playlist Player

    Forgiving the French?? Okay Benedict.

    Mjr Tom

    @Playlist Player the french were on our side against the brits pal

    Playlist Player

    @Mjr Tom The old French Government buddy, but they all went the way of Ichabod Crane.

    Private Colceri

    @Playlist Player Ironically, so did the leaders of the revolution against the old government; after the revolutionists turned against them due to all the bloodshed.

    Playlist Player

    @Private Colceri Which, as unfortunate as that was, meant that all of our allies in France were dead.

    I love that part.

    our retrouver ma douce amie
    Oh mes boués, ouh là ouh là là.
    Pour retrouver ma douce amie
    Oh mes boués, ouh là ouh là là.

    Oh my boys, oh la la,
    To find my sweet love,
    Oh my boys, oh la la,

    Pique la baleine, joli baleinier
    Pique la baleine, je veux naviguer.

    Lance the whale, jolly whalerman,
    You lance the whale, I'll steer.

    Aux mille mers j'ai navigué.
    I sailed many seas

    Des mers du nord aux mers du sud.

    From the north to the south.


    Je l'ai retrouvée quand j'm'ai noyé.
    I found my love when I drowned.

    Dans les grands fonds, elle m'espérait.
    In the great depths she was waiting for me,

    Tous deux ensemble on a pleuré.
    The two of us together we cried.

    En couple à elle, j'm'suis couché.
    Entwined with her will be my bed.

    Dotar Sejuk

    I'm not sure if that is exactly how I would translate it but it is a good attempt. I think boues means buoys, no?

    Dotar Sejuk

    Sorry to leave two replies, accidentally sent the last one.

    Additionally, je veux naviguer means I want to sail/steer not I will steer. This is an important distinction as the singer may not be the navigator but just a hand on the ship (kind of the difference between flying somewhere as in riding a plane and actually piloting an aircraft). The rest are kind of oversimplifications that aren't really necessary (ie aux mille mers is to the/a thousand seas so a more accurate translation would be I've sailed the thousand seas.) an as such misleading.
