Dominique Lyrics

DOMINIQUE The Singing Nun Dominique, nique, nique, over the land he plods And sings a little song Never asking for reward He just talks about the Lord He just talks about the Lord At a time when Johnny Lackland Over England was the King Dominique was in the backland Fighting sin like anything Now a heretic, one day Among the thorns forced him to crawl Dominique with just one prayer Made him hear the good Lord's call Without horse or fancy wagon He crossed Europe up and down Poverty was his companion As he walked from town to town To bring back the straying liars And the lost sheep to the fold He brought forth the Preaching Friars Heaven's soldier's, brave and bold One day, in the budding Order There was nothing left to eat Suddenly two angels walked in With a loaf of bread and meat Dominique once, in his slumber Saw the Virgin's coat unfurled Over Frairs without number Preaching all around the world Grant us now, oh Dominique The grace of love and simple mirth That we all may help to quicken Godly life and truth on earth Dominique, nique, nique s'en allait tout simplement Routier pauvre et chantant En tous chemins, en tous lieux, il ne parle que do bon Dieu Il ne parle que do bon Dieu A l'e poque ou Jean-sans-Terre de' Angleterre etait Roi Dominique, notre Pere, combattit les Albigeois Repeat first 4 lines: Chorus Ni chameau, ni diligence il parcout l'Europe a pied Scandinavie ou Provence dans la sainte pauvrete Refrain Enflamma de toute ecole filles et garcons pleins d'ardeur Et pour semer la Parole inventa les Freres-Precheurs Refrain Chez Dominique et ses freres le pain s'en vint a manquer Et deux anges se presenterent portant de grands pains dores Refrain Dominique vit en reve les precheurs do monde entier Sous le manteau de la Vierge en grand nombre rassembles Refrain Dominique, mon bon Pere, garde-nous simples et gais Pour annoncer a nos freres la Vie et la Verite Refrain ---------
