If you leave early in the morning...

(First of all, please click on this link to hear the beautiful song : 'A bicyclette' by Yves Montand )
Spring is up in our diaries and with it the compulsive need to maximise our exposition to the sun rays. And what better way to do so than letting our four wheels hibernate and get on a bicycle ? Our french heritage has a lot to do with us enjoying so much this joyful song from Yves Montand that I can not stop but hum when cycling.
And here are the lyrics translated in english for those who always wondered what this iconic song was all about... (A.D)
When we would leave in early morning
When we would leave for the trails
By bicycle
We were great friends
There was Fernand, there was Firmin
There was Francis and Sebastien
And then Paulette

We were all in love with her
We felt ourselves grow wings
By bicycle
On the little dirt trails
We often went through hell
To not put our foot down
In front of Paulette
You have to say she put her heart into it
She was the postman's daughter
By bicycle
And when she turned eight
She followed him around
On all the surrounding trails
By bicycle

When we approached the river
We left in the ferns
Our bicycles
And rolled around in the fields
Giving rise to a changing bouquet
Of grasshoppers, butterflies
And frogs
When the sun on the horizon
Cast onto all the shrubbery
Our shadows
We went back exhausted and happy
Though our heart a bit sad
To not have had a minute alone
With Paulette

To furtively take her hand
And forget the others for a while
And the bicycle
We'd say it's for tomorrow
I'll dare, I'll dare try tomorrow
When we take to the trails
By bicycle
