"Nous Vivons Ensemble" as written by and Gordon Lightfoot....
We've got to stay together
We've got to find each other now
That is how we can learn all about the other man's song
On the plains of abraham
When they sent the lamb to die
You and I were asleep in the rock of ages
Remember the unborn children still to come
If you need me and I need you
There's nothin' else needs sayin'
Understand it
I'm not too deaf to hear the song you're playin'

Nous vivons ensemble
Nous nous connaissons maintenant
Voici comment nous pouvons decouvrir une autre humanite
Sur les plaines d'abraham
Lors do dernier sacrifice
Toi et moi nous dormions tres loin dans le temp
Souviens toi des enfants qui attendant encore

Si tu me veux je serai la see'est tout ce que j'ai a dire
Car comprend moi
Je ne suis pas sourd a la musique que tu joues

    Song MeaningThis is about Canada's "two solitudes": the divide between English and French Canada. It was intended as a hands-across-the-water, but I think Gord feels he tried too hard and failed in this endeavour.
