"Félicie aussi" is a 1939 song performed by Fernandel.[1][2] Of the 300 songs he sang on stage during his career, it is undoubtedly his most famous.[3]

Writing and composition[edit]

The song was written by Albert Willemetz (who penned the lyrics for such songs as Maurice Chevalier's "Valentine" and Mistinguett's "C'est vrai")[4] and Charles-Louis Pothier[1] and composed by Casimir Oberfeld.[5]

The song is based on appreciation of the adverb "aussi" ("too"):[1]

Il faisait un temps superbe
Je me suis assis sur l'herbe
Félicie aussi
J'pensais les arbres bourgeonnent
Et les gueules-de-loup boutonnent
Félicie aussi[1]

The weather was superb
I sat on the grass
So did Félicie
I thought, Trees are budding

And snapdragons are budding
So is Félicie
