Adieu Émile, my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and ABC's
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees
Dear Émile, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air (spring is in the air)
Pretty girls are everywhere (girls are everywhere)
Think of me and I'll be there

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

All our lives, we had fun (we had fun)
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

Dear Papa, please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family
You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song
I wonder how I got along

Dear Papa, it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air (spring is in the air)
Little children everywhere (children everywhere)
Think of me and I'll be there

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

All our lives, we had fun (we had fun)
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

Dear Françoise, my trusted wife
Without you I'd have had a lonely life
You cheated lots of times, but then
I forgave you in the end
Ha, though your lover was my friend

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

All our lives, we had fun (we had fun)
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

All our lives, we had fun (we had fun)
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills we used to climb
Were just seasons out of time

All our lives, we had fun (we had fun)
We had seasons in the sun

    General CommentGreat song. It's about someone who is dying and saying goodbye to all those he loves.

    Very sad really!
