Does anybody have an English translation for "└ Toi"? I've been learning French for a few years now, and I'm doing well, but some of this song I do not understand. I would like to sing it to my class, and I would like to know some of the words that I do not know. Thank you, and I appreciate it.

Hi

I was the bass player on most of Joe's recordings, both London and Paris.

Does anyone have complete list of all the songs please?
