Hé, jolie petite blonde, j'aimais tant,Oh, petite mignonne pour moi,Hé, pour faire donc toi t'as eu pour me quitter moi comme ça.Hé, 'tite fille, mais gardez donc de ma maison,Hé, mignonne,(je) m'ennuie de toi,Hé, pour faire donc je pourrai pas te revoir une fois encore.Hé, petite, moi j'voudrais, mais, te demander,Oh, c'est bien éyou t'as été?,Ouais, parce que moi je suis misérable quand je vais à Duralde asteure.

This is truly one of the great post-war records. It was the first super group of Cajun music. Adam Hebert sings and plays fiddle with Alphée Bergeron playing accordion. Alphée's son, Shirley Bergeron, Bill Matte and Raymond Lafleur played in this great band as well. In time, all the members went on to their own successes.1
Hey, pretty little blond, I loved so much,Oh, little cutie for me,Hey, so what's done, you had to leave me like that.Hey, little girl, well, so look, I'm home,Hey, cutie, I miss you.Hey, so what's done, I won't be able to see you again.Hey, little one, I would like, well, to ask you,Oh, it's good wherever you are?Yeah, because I am miserable when I go to Duralde, right now.
Some musicians just count from their mouth when they sing, they just speak. I approach my music not from my mouth, it comes straight from my heart.3
Daddy was a very comical fellow and very serious at his work as a farmer. He was a hard working accordion player at the dance jobs. He played until he got physically unable to keep up But his music lives on through the records. His music is still popular.4
