Since everyone knows that les chats noirs are french, it will come as no surprise that, upon adopting two chats noirs, Tasha spoke to them primarily in French. They have failed to appear impressed by this, responding chiefly to effusive praise in whatever language. Elles sont des chats, après tout.

Still, when Justin composed a tune last year that clearly needed French lyrics, what Tasha sang was a sultry little tune in praise of les mademoiselles. She was inclined to apologize for this, until the song became a crowd favorite. Which is why it wound up here. (Cheers, you great crowds, you.)

So, presenting - for Halloween 2013 - a song about black cats. Get your french on, pet a cat, and eat candy. You're welcome.

BONUS! All proceeds will fund more recording - and there's a giant stack of songs waiting to meet you! So buy "L'Histoire..." for $1 or more, then gift it to a friend and share/tweet the link. Your purchase => more Ellery songs. Thank you!!

Here's to les chats, de toutes les couleurs.


Nous avons deux chats noirs
Nous habitons dans leur maison
Elles aiment toujours jouer dans le soir
Et elles sont si, sont si mignon

C'est vrai qu'elles sont un peu gross
Parce-ce qu'elles aiment manger un peu trop
Mais elles sont si belles, sont si belles

Une, elle s'appelle Coco Chanel
Une, elle s'appelle Coco Chanel
Et l'autre: c'est Simone de Beauvoir.

en anglais:

We have two black cats
We live in their house
They always like to play in the evening
And they are so, are so cute

It's true that they're a little fat
Because they like to eat a little too much,
But they're so, they're so beautiful

One, she's named Coco Chanel
One, she's named Coco Chanel
And the other: that's Simone de Beauvoir.
