A LA RECHERCHE DU TEMPS PERDU


A la recherche du temps perdu
Young men butchered on the fields of Flanders
A la recherche du temps perdu
One 4 year old girl snatched on holiday in Portugal
A la recherché de Madeleine perdue
Heard the Beetles but never saw them in Russia in the 60s
A la recherché du temps perdu
Religious straitjacket robbed me of 30 years of enjoying them
A la recherché du temps perdu

    I really like this. Love the French refrain. This is perfection, mixing the English lines amongst the French. Very delicious. Thanks so much for this one. (Report) Reply
