Etait le Troisième de Juin (un Autre Jour Delta Poussiéreux Endormi)
I have no reason for posting this French cover of Ode to Billie Joe except that it is, after all, the third of June. I woke up this morning with that song - the English version - in my head, and haven't gotten it out yet.
Plus, I'm amused by the 1970s set design of this French version. The lyrics are about the same, except the narrator is male, the poor farm family grows grapes instead of cotton, and I guess they pass around croissants and snails at lunch instead of biscuits and black-eyed peas.
