Those Canaan Days Lyrics

(Simeon)
Do you remember the good years in Canaan?
The summers were endlessly gold
The fields were a patchwork of clover
The winters were never too cold
We'd stroll down the boulevards together
And everything 'round us was fine

(Jacob)
Now the fields are dead and bare
No joie de vivre anywhere
Et maintenant we drink a bitter wine

(Brothers)
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days

(Simeon)
Do you remember those wonderful parties?
The splendour of Canaan's cuisine
Our extravagant, elegant soirés
The gayest the Bible has seen
It's funny, but, since we lost Joseph
We've gone to the other extreme
No-one comes to dinner now
We'd only eat them anyhow
I even find I'm missing Joseph's dreams

(Brothers)
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days

(Simeon)
It's funny, but, since we lost Joseph
We've gone to the other extreme
Perhaps we all misjudged the lad
Perhaps he wasn't quite that bad
And how we miss his entertaining dreams

(Brothers)
Those Canaan days we used to know
Where have they gone, where did--did they go?
Eh bien, raise your berets

(Simeon)
To those Canaan days

(Brothers)
Eh bien, raise your berets
To those Canaan days
