Pretty Pictures of Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves
(French lyrics by Jacques Prévert,
English lyrics by Johnny Mercer,
Music by Joseph Kosma)

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

C’est une chanson, qui nous ressemble
Toi tu m’aimais et je t’aimais
Nous vivions tous, les deux ensemble
Toi que m’aimais moi qui t’aimais
Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s’aiment
Tout doucement sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable les pas des amants désunis

Maria Hunt — aka The Bubbly Girl — believes pork should be its own food group, bubbly is meant for sipping anytime and the Sicilians got it right when they made ice cream a breakfast food. She's a cultural food writer, mixologist, author, first level sommelier and hostess of The Bubbly Girl.com. Her adventures have included cooking with Alice, drinking with Tony and sea urchin fishing with Wolfgang. Haute cuisine is cool, but the Chicago native still hasn't lost a taste for pan pizza, her dad's barbecue ribs and a good Polish. The meal she still dreams about is chile relleno soup in the back of a second hand store in Ensenada.
