about

This American classic, originally titled Moonlight Serenade, was composed by Glenn Miller and released in 1939 as the theme for his orchestra. The French lyrics are an adaptation of the song by Patrick Loiseau. The track is very true to how it would have been performed in the 1940’s, as an intimate ballad with an easy swing feel. The tempo of the song is 90 BPM and it is backed by electric piano, double bass, electric guitar and a brush snare.

lyrics

DANSEZ MAINTENANT

Dansez maintenant
Tout l'été les pieds nus dans le sable
Dansez maintenant
Et jetez vos ennuis dans les vagues
Qui dansent, balancent, au gré du vent sale

Dansez maintenant
Tout l'été aimez-vous sur le sable
Dansez maintenant
Tout l'été vous serez des cigales
Qui dansent, balancent, au gré du vent léger

Quand l'hiver sera venu vous
prendre au dépourvu
Vous danserez main dans la main
En attendant l'été prochain

Dansez maintenant
Tout l'été aimez-vous sur le sable
Dansez maintenant
Tout l'été vous serez des cigales
Qui dansent, balancent, au gré du vent léger

Quand l'hiver sera venu vous
prendre au dépourvu
Vous danserez main dans la main
En attendant l'été prochain

Dansez maintenant
Tout l'été les pieds nus dans le sable
Dansez maintenant
Et jetez vos ennuis dans les vagues
Qui dansent, balancent, au gré du vent salé
