Traditional Breton Sea Chanty, "Three Sailors".

Recommended Posts

"Tri Martolod ", or the three sailors, was a chanty popular in the Canadian maritimes and coastal France. The artist is Norwenn Leroy. By watching the video alone, you might have no idea of its meaning. (Norwenn is not hard to look at either ... )

 

English Translation:

 

Three Sailors

Three young sailors, tra la la…
Three young sailors went traveling
 
Went traveling!
Went traveling!
 
And the wind pushed them… la la la
The wind pushed them to Newfoundland
 
All the way to Newfoundland!
All the way to Newfoundland
 
Next to the windmill stone… la la la
Next to the windmill stone, they threw down the anchor
 
They threw down the anchor!
They threw down the anchor!
 
And in that windmill… la la la
And in that windmill was a servant girl
 
Where have we met before?
Where have we met before?
 
We met in Nantes* at the market… la la la
In Nantes at the market, we chose a ring

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
