"Bastille day" Part 2 / Father's memories of "A PARIS, DANS CHAQUE FAUBOURG"

On the day of "Bastille day", I was in Japan.

"Bastille day" is «Quatorze juillet» in French.

There is a famous French movie «Quatorze juillet».
The theme song of the movie «Quatorze juillet» is "A PARIS, DANS CHAQUE FAUBOURG".

I listened "A PARIS, DANS CHAQUE FAUBOURG" sung by Lys Gauty many times.
I also sang "A PARIS, DANS CHAQUE FAUBOURG".

Singing "A PARIS, DANS CHAQUE FAUBOURG" on the day of «Quatorze juillet» was my dream. Even if I were in Japan, my dream came true.
I was happy.

When I was young, I asked my father to speak French.
My father laughed and sang "A PARIS, DANS CHAQUE FAUBOURG".

At that time, I heard French for the first time.
That's an important memory with my father.

The lyrics of this song are René Clair who directed the movie, and composer Maurice Jaubert.
