SCANDALE DANS LA FAMILLE (S-H. Brown / H. Donaldson / M. Teze, 1965) Sacha Distel (France) Autres interprètes: Dalida (1965), La Compagnie Créole (1986). A Trinidad, tout là-bas aux Antilles A Trinidad, vivait une famille Y avait la Mama et le Papa Et le grand fils aîné Qui, à quarante ans N'était toujours pas marié Un jour il trouva, la fille qu'il voulait Et dit à son père : " Je voudrais l'épouser. " Hélas mon garçon, hélas tu n'peux pas Car cette fille est ta sœur Et ta mère ne l'sait pas Oh Papa, quel malheur Quel grand malheur pour moi Oh Papa, quel scandale Si Maman savait ça Deux ans passèrent et le garçon, un soir, vint trouver son père et lui dit, plein d'espoir: " La maîtresse d'école veut bien m'épouser " Mais le pauvre père prit un air accablé: Mon fils tu n'peux pas tu n'peux pas faire ça Car cette fille est ta sœur Et ta mère ne l'sait pas ! Oh Papa, quel malheur Quel grand malheur pour moi Oh Papa, quel scandale Si Maman savait ça Dix ans après, il revint tout ému Et dit à son père, " Devine ce que j'ai vu ! " Dans la plantation, On vient d'embaucher Plus de cinquante filles Du village d'à côté Hélas mon pauvre enfant Les Dieux sont contre toi Toutes ces filles sont tes sœurs Et ta mère ne l'sait pas A bout de patience, Il s'en fut écœuré Raconter à sa mère toute la vérité Sa mère se mit à rire Et lui dit : "Ne t'en fais pas Ton père n'est pas ton père Et ton père ne le sait pas" Oh Mama, quel bonheur Quel grand bonheur pour moi Oh Mama, quel scandale Si Papa savait ça ***** UN GROSSO SCANDALO (Brown / Donaldson / Beretta) Dalida (France) Woh papà ! che dirà la gente in città Woh papà ! che scandalo se la mammà lo sa A Trinidad viveva una famiglia A Trinidad woh woh che famiglia La mamma ed un papà con un ragazzo in età Che amava la ragazza più carina in città Il babbo pero gli disse di no 'E' tua sorella sposarti non puo Tu solo lo sai, non dirlo giammai Perchè se lo sa la mamma io sono nei guai Woh papà !

Woe is me Shame and scandal in the family Woe is me Shame and scandal in the family In Trinidad there was a family With much confusion as you will see It was a mama and a papa and a boy who was grown He wanted to marry, have a wife of his own Found a young girl that suited him nice Went to his papa to ask his advice His papa said: "Son, I have to say no, This girl is your sister, but your mama don't know" Oh, woe is me Shame and scandal in the family Oh, woe is me Shame and scandal in the family A week went by and the summer came 'round Soon the best cook in the island he found He went to his papa to name the day His papa shook his head and to him did say "You Can't marry this girl, I have to say no This girl is your sister, but your mama don't know" Oh, woe is me Shame and scandal in the family Oh, woe is me Shame and scandal in the family He went to his mama and covered his head And told his mama what his papa had said His mama she laughed, she say, "Go man, go Your daddy ain't your daddy, but your daddy don't know." Oh, woe is me Shame and scandal in the family Oh, woe is me Shame and scandal in the family ***** Extra 3rd Verse as recorded by Lee Curtis: The years went by The boy wished he was dead. He found seventeen girls and still wasn't wed He went to his Papa His Papa said: "No, those girls are your sisters But your Mama don't know." ***** Variation as recorded by Trini Lopez: Woe is me Shame and scandal in the family Woe, it worries me Shame and scandal in the family In Trinidad there was a family With much confusion as you will see There was a Mama and a Papa and a boy who was grown He wanted to marry a wife by his own He met a young girl, who suited him nice He went to his Papa to ask his advice His Papa said, "Son, I have to say no That girl is your sister, but your Mama don't know!" Hey - woe is me Shame and scandal in the family, hey Woe, it worries me Shame and scandal in the family A week went by, the summer came down Soon another girl on the island he found He went to his Papa to name the day His Papa shook his head and this time he did say "You can't marry this girl, have to say no That girl is your auntie, but your granny don't know!"
