  • The MHEU | The electricity fairy
    Croient ils donc que leurs luminaires Prévaudront contre nos foyers bis Sachons mépriser leur conduite Rions de leur aveuglement Par Volta faisons le serment De mettre un jour le gaz en fuite refrain Tremblez assassins et perfides Qui nous dévalisez la nuit Tremblez vos projets homicides Sont déjoués quand le soleil luit bis Combien a t on fait de victimes Grâce au gaz dans les carrefours Mais quand les nuits seront des jours On ne commettra plus de crimes refrain Amour sacré de la batt rie Conduis soutiens nos fils vainqueurs Ô Electricité chérie Flanque une pile aux détracteurs bis Pour mettre un comble à leur déboire Que ces allumeurs de lampions Soient foudroyés par les rayons Que sur eux répandra ta gloire refrain Nous éclipserons la lumière Des vieux éclairages connus Huile pétrole et gaz arrière Tous bientôt vous ne serez plus bis Quand vous aurez cessé de vivre Quand seuls nous taperons dans l œil Nous pourrons dire avec orgueil Pour voir clair c est nous qu il faut suivre refrain A popular French anthem sung by electricians Lighting the darkness without using a flame was a revolution Perpetual daylight without the dangers of fire Though electrical phenomena have been observed since the dawn of time it took the whole of the 19 th century to master electric power Its first applications involved locomotion and it was not until 1878 that Thomas Edison invented the incandescent electric light Its filament was made of Japanese bamboo and burned out after 30 hours Dinner at the Ball Here Edgar Degas copied a painting by the great artist Adolph Menzel Dinner at the Ball Menzel s painting was finished in 1878 and exhibited in Paris the following year with other works by the German artist It is easy to imagine what
