Lyrics

In the south of France, where the sunflowers grow
Nothing much has changed since long ago
Cobblestone streets, like a scene from the past
Medieval towns…yeah, they built things to last
But everything just stops – from twelve to two.
            (spoken)   It’s lunch!
 
CHORUS:
And they say “Bonne journee!  Bon appetit!”
Have a good day.  Enjoy what you eat
The world’s going crazy, but the French folk know
Everything tastes sweeter when you take it slow.
 
BRIDGE:
La la la la -  la la la la -  la
La la la la -  la la la la -  la
La la la la
La la la – la la la
 
In the south of France, y’know it’s really true
Shops and markets close from twelve to two
La boucherie, la boulangerie, le docteur et la pharmacie….
Even the parking meter lets you park for free!
            (spoken)  It’s lunch!
 
CHORUS:
And they say “Bonne journee!  Bon appetit!”
Have a good day.  Enjoy what you eat
The world’s going crazy, but I have a hunch
We’d all be much better with a two-hour lunch.
 
WHISTLING BRIDGE
 
In the south of France, summer days are long
9 p.m., daylight’s going strong
It’s not longitude or latitude
That gives Old Sol his attitude
I think the sun just stops….from twelve to two.
            (spoken)  You know why.
 
CHORUS:
And he says “Bonne journee!  Bon appetit!”
Have a good day.  Enjoy what you eat
The world’s going crazy, but we all should know
Everything tastes sweeter when you take it slow.
 
Combo la-la / whistling Outro
La la la la -  la la la la -  la
La la la la -  la la la la -  la
La la la la
La la la – la la la
 
WHISTLING
 
(spoken end)  “Bon Appetit!”

THE YEAR 2020

Jackie Morris

Intended as a humorous recollection of a really horrible year, "The Year 2020" recalls my way of trying to make lemonade out of lemons. The lyrics are actually true...and after I wrote the song, I realized how compulsive this scary time made me! But I also know that I was not alone! So many of us were spurred on to repair what had been neglected when life was "normal."
