Alrance, France

lyrics

Tucked away like the hills of Carolina
We followed French roads making waves behind us
Until a town emerged above the tree line higher
Captivated our American eyes like a campfire

And it was crippled by wars and rainfall
We saw the old castle
We laughed in stone houses
Made of it’s fallen walls
No, we didn’t share much in common
But I cannot forget the chance
I had to be from Alrance

The new mayor was appointed, so we raised a flagpole
A bunch of us falling backwards slipping off the ropes
And the town drunk seemed to make everyone smile
As we all sang french songs, singing’

Ooh lah lah tres bien!
ooh lah lah magnifique!

With all the bread and cheese a man could dream to see

And it was crippled by wars and rainfall
We saw the old castle
We laughed in stone houses
Made of it’s fallen walls
No, we didn’t share much in common
But I cannot forget the chance
I had to be from Alrance
