Happiest Days

By Edward H. Donnelly

I said to the little children,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And their bright eyes opened wider In innocent amaze.
For their happiness was so perfect,
They did not know it then;
"Oh, no," they said, "there'll be happier days
When we are women and men."

I said to the youth and maiden,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And into their sparkling eyes there crept
A dreamy, far-off gaze;
And their hands sought one another,
And their cheeks flushed rosy red;
" Oh, no," they said, " there'll be happier days
For us when we are wed."

I said to the man and woman,
"You are living your happiest days,"
As they laughingly watched together
Their baby's cunning ways.
"These days are days of labor.
They can hardly be our best;
There'll be happier days when the children are grown,
And we have earned our rest."

I said to the aged couple,
"You are living your happiest days,"
Your children do you honor,
You have won success and praise.
" With a peaceful look they answered,
"God is good to us, that's true: But we think there are happier days for us
In the life we're going to."

You should have Montreal’s Men I Trust on your radar for 2020. The band has been building steady buzz for years with their warm, romantic melodies. The trio hit some groovy bass lines with some pretty awesome keyboard chords that just fit singer Emmanuelle Proulx’s voice perfectly.

Men I Trust sets itself apart with their frank stories of love and nostalgia which is different from other indie pop bands who try to keep themselves as mysterious as possible. Their standout tracks you need to check out are “Lauren,” “Show Me How,” and their most recent single “Say, Can You Hear.”


The band has been releasing a steady stream of tracks ahead of their album Oncle Jazz. And what’s super cool about them is that they record, mix and master all of their own work. These guys are the real deal.


So check them out!
