George Brassens Pauvre Martin English subtitles

9 years ago998 views

The miserable, monotonous life of a poor agricultural worker, and his near saintly uncomplaining resignation to his life, work and death are described by Brassens in this song from 1954. With words of elegant simplicity and an irresisitible tune, Pauvre Martin has become a classic , included in the CD Brassens Raconte aux Enfants (Brassens Tells Children) and has been covered by children's choirs, Barbara, amateurs and musicians of all sorts , from folk to punk rock.
Thanks once again to philipchek of YouTube and Paris for help with this translation .
