No French, No More


by Zachary Richard. Buy album CD: Women In The Room


My Papa was a hard working mand,
Held a plow inside a caloused hand.
Up before the sun out on theland.
Try to give us everything he can.

He sent us off to school when a teacher came,
He said, ďMy boy try hard, do the best you can.Ē
But the teacher we could not understand
Because she only talked ďAm?ricainĒ.

Papa couldnít tell us and it didnít make no sense
When the teacher told us we couldnít talk no French no more.

Things were changing fast it Louisiane,
Cajun canít talk English feel ashamed.
But nowadays, itís getting so you canít
Tell the Cajuns from Am?rcains.
Papa couldnít tell us and it didnít make no sense
When the teacher told us we couldnít talk no French no more.
Do you hear me calling, do you understand?
Once it is gone, it ainít never coming back no more.

I got me a job just like my Papa planned,
I wear a suit and dirt never touch my hand,
But I still see the look in my Papaís eyes,
The pain and the shame that he just could not hide.

Papa couldnít tell us and it didnít make no sense
When the teacher told us we couldnít talk no French no more.
Do you hear me calling, do you understand?
Once it is gone, it ainít never coming back no more.
H?, mon cher gar?on,
Est-ce que tu me comprends?
