Another classic, for Friday :
“My Sharona” is the debut single by the Knack. The song was written by Berton Averre and Doug Fieger, and released in 1979 from their album Get the Knack. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart where it remained for 6 weeks, and was number one on Billboard’s 1979 Top Pop Singles year-end chart.
It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, representing half a million copies sold, and was Capitol Records’ fastest gold status debut single since the Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand” in 1964.

Bonjour mon ami amie
En ce jour de deuxième jour de printemps je viens te saluer
C’est le plus beau jour ou tout renaît
Les arbres vont fleurir , la nature vas prendre de la splendeur
Dommage il faudra attendre pour en profiter
Aujourd’hui le plus gros handicap la peur
Mais pensons que
La plus belle chose et l’amour
Je te souhaite une belle fin de journée ou de nuit ainsi
Qu’un agréable weekend
Bisou Amical Bernard
Que le réconfort de ses amis amies et
Sur cet air de printemps
Bonjour mon ami amie, Bernard.
Sorry my French is very basic. Thankyou for the beautiful photo, and kind words.
I’m at home too, the virus I hope we will have some good news soon.
Wow. That’s an oldie, but a goodie. I heard it in my head as soon as I read your title.
Thanks for sharing! This is one of my favorites, and it brings back a lot of memories. 🙂

My pleasure. It popped up, and I had the urge to post it.
One of my favourites too.
