The Lyrics

If you do not know the song, a low bit-rate MP3 can be found here
Alouette, in my hand
It makes me cry to see you bland
Chef, you, clean-peeled: gooseflesh toutin’
Feathers no more are floutin’
Overhaul the pains of his crime spree:

Save this lark from lonely doom
Protect this sad bird: must replume
Avian attire-er
I must bird provide
To un-plumerai
That your skin can firmly hide
And your raiment turn
From horr’ble into gay

I’m just a skylark fletchin’
Remedy disrobing
(Waiting for the day
When he can spread his wings
And fly away again)
Ply today: skylark fletchin’ ply
Rebarb, redeem
Your tete, dos, bec and cou combined
Ply today: skylark fletchin’, ply
Rebarb, redeem
The theft of feath’ry awe defined

Let me take up all this downing
‘Twas in pillow-case thrown ‘way
To fledge apply, to buff defy
Restore rightness of array

I must adhere the healing quills
Of pinion-worthy things
And last of all please let me clothe
These naked little wings
This moulten look’s outrage must be undone

I’m just a skylark fletchin’
Aiming at recloaking
(Waiting for the day
When he can spread his wings
And fly away again)
I essay…skylark fletchin’ try
Plumage redeem
Un-strip your very bare behind
I essay…skylark fletchin’ try
Plumage redeem;
Re-quip your very, your very bare behind

M&P - This is about nakedNESS isn't it? Expertly mastered. But I have not symapthy for one that is AKA "Rat with wings". This is an "EJ" song I have not been aquainted with. I youtubed it and read while Elton sang. Fits very nicely. I have trouble with the French language for some reason. I know the other Romantic languages fairly well but French always throws me for a loop so you may have lost me on a few lines. The "bec and cou" ref I caught but I'm lost on "tete, dos"

Last February I saw something that I wish I could have gotten onto video - I was driving on the access road of Interstate 35 on the east side of town and one forth block from an intersection was this house on the right. A man was feeding pigeons in the front of the house. He was standing on his porch and there must have been about 300 pigeons on his front yard. Just as I approached two (ahem) peregrine falcons come in supersonic after some lunch. Of course the pigeons panic and panic fly in all directions. The guy on the porch was pummeled by paniced pigeons flying into him. It was all he could do to duck and cover as he hit the deck. I barely missed a few as they flew into my path. And of course the falcons secured lunch for another day.

Fine write even with the translation holes. If Carmine read this I think he would ref "Overhaul the pains of his crime spree:" as "datz wutz da chooch gitz fer be-an a stool pigeon".
