Georges Moustaki sings “Le Flamenco, una España sin Franco” (The Flamenco, a Spain without Franco)

French Lyrics

Qui le premier pourra chanter
les accords de la liberté
qui chantera le flamenco
dans une espagne sans franco
ce sera fête ce jour là
et moi je voudrais être là
pour écouter le flamenco

le vent de l’histoire a tourné
près de la méditerranée
le vent de l’histoire a tourné
luthier prépare pour demain
une guitare de tes mains
elle jouera le flamenco
dans une espagne sans franco

sortez les chaises des cafés
faites briller tous les pavés
on dansera le flamenco

le vent de l’histoire a tourné
prés de la méditerranée
le vent de l’histoire a tourné

picasso sera invité
cassal sera ressuscité
il y aura fredérico
et tous ceux qui sont morts trop tôt
il y aura fête ce jour là
et moi je voudrais être là
pour écouter le flamenco

le vent de l’histoire a tourné
prés de la méditerranée
le vent de l’histoire a tourné (2x)
prés de la méditerranée

English Lyrics

I couldn’t find the English lyrics, so I used google translate.

Who will sing the first
agreements freedom
who will sing flamenco
Franco in Spain without
it will feast on this day
and I would be there
listen to flamenco

the wind of history turned
near the Mediterranean
the wind of history turned
maker prepares for tomorrow
a guitar in your hands
she will play flamenco
Franco in Spain without

out chairs cafes
Shine all paved
we will dance the flamenco

the wind of history turned
near the Mediterranean
the wind of history turned

Picasso will be invited
Cassal will be resurrected
it will be Frederico
and all those who died too soon
there will feast on this day
and I would be there
listen to flamenco

the wind of history turned
near the Mediterranean
the wind of history has turned (2x)
near the Mediterranean

Moustaki gave France some of its best-loved music by writing about 300 songs for some of the most popular singers in that country, such as Édith Piaf, Dalida, Françoise Hardy, Yves Montand, Barbara, Brigitte Fontaine, Herbert Pagani, France Gall, Cindy Daniel, Juliette Greco, Pia Colombo, and Tino Rossi, as well as for himself.
