Family Waltz

Are there lyrics to Family Waltz that are not the Balfa version?

Re: Family Waltz

Found this one at Cajunlyrics

Family Waltz
by Balfa Brothers

Oh! C'est miserable, chere catin.
Ca t'es atres faire avec moi,
T'es apres me quitter dans les miseres.
Oh! Toi, t'as casse ma famille.
Quoi faire tu reviens pas, avec moi a la maison?

Oh! Chaque fois que j'arrive a la maison,
Les enfant viennet me rejoindre a la petite porte de cour.
En demandant,"Chere papa, ayou notre maman?"
Moi je me mets a pleurer.
Faut je leur dis elle en a un autre que moi, yaie.

Re: Family Waltz

Thank you, except I said not the Balfa version. Maybe like how Russell Cormier or how Michael Dupuy sings it?
