O vagañ soñjoù du, o hunvreal

1. We Bretons at heart
love our country,
also love others,
the link that unites them
my own culture
was born here
it is born somewhere else
and is all the richer for it

2. What does it mean to be Breton?
Pure blood, mother tongue, deep roots
to be called Malo and born in Rennes?
stickers on your car
a gwenn ha du flag
cousins in Lambaol
chouchen and that’s it?

3. Whoever wants it is at home in Brittany
a border on the ground,
a limit in your head
there is no country that is
more real than another
if you could understand
it would probably rain less

4. Brittany, land of old saints,
land of bards
land of pigs, polluted land
Amoco, Erika, Torrey Canyon, whatever
land of misery, good for nothing
land laid bare, destroyed, covered, in
ruins, concrete on the sand
land of misery, flooded
crossed at full speed

5. Torn between the desire
to pay tribute
to the songs, the sounds,
the tunes of our fathers and at the same
time it would not be bad
to clear the table
and try another dish

6. The Bretons are rough
and strong people
there is nothing to be proud of
what is done is done
you can’t change the past
don’t look back
don’t stay and play
Endure to last
Earning a living
Get up early
Work hard and that’s it

7. The mottos of the ancients
run through my head all night long
and if I decided to stop
I refuse to grow up
if I choose another road
even if it means going the wrong way
go the wrong way
and run until I fall
No more work value
I refuse to grow up
Indolent child, impotent
sleepy, clinging to his post
he broods, he dreams
while waiting
