Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

Django Reinhardt


Josette Daydé and Django Reinhardt
Coucou

Coucou, les rosiers fleurissent
Coucou, les rameaux verdissent
Coucou, voici le printemps

Coucou, le beau soleil brill
Coucou, et les yeux des filles
Coucou, en font tout autant

Que faites-vous, que faites-vous encore à sommeiller
Eveillez-vous, Eveillez-vous, le monde est transformé

Coucou ouvrez moi bien vite
Coucou, mon coeur vous invite
Coucou, il faut nous aimer.

Cadillac, Cadillac, Coucou bonjour mon amour
Cadilla dilla dilla
Cadillac, Cadillac, Coucou veut dire bonjour

Que faites-vous, que faites-vous encore à sommeiller
Eveillez-vous, Eveillez-vous, le monde est transformé

Coucou, ouvrez moi bien vite
Coucou, mon coeur vous invite
Coucou, il faut nous aimer



January 23rd, 1910 – Guitarist Django Reinhardt born in Liverchies, Belgium. One of the first prominent European jazz musicians, Reinhardt remains one of the most renowned jazz guitarists. With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he cofounded the Quintette du Hot Club de France. Reinhardt's most popular compositions have become jazz standards, including "Minor Swing", "Belleville", "Djangology", "Swing '42" and "Nuages" (French for "Clouds"). Reinhardt retired in 1951, and passed away in May of 1953.

awesome! i love him so much. i heard great stories about him, too....he'd be set up for some really big-deal concert, but on his way there, he'd get caught up in an impromptu improvisational "jam session," and forget all about it....what a great player...thanks!
