cheers - the reason i didn't use an online dictionary (and I know them VERY well) is because I didn't want to get trapped with a word that is an exact translation but not actually how a native speaker would use it. It's for a word frequency survey, so picking equivalent words is more important then an exact translaton and i've been bitten by dictionary use in the past.

If anyone here speaks French adequately, I'm trying to finish the transition of the old Gene Kelly song 'I got Rhythm' into French. Mostly so I have one more thing to do the next time I get stuck subbing for a French class.

Most pressingly, a lyrical way of saying "who could ask for anything more?" the most common refrain. "green pastures" would be nice but is probably look-upable. If you feel like a challenge try and keep the chorus rhyming. "Old Man Trouble/I don't mind him/ You won't find him/ hanging 'round my door."
