Past Tenses in Song: Fugain’s “Une Belle Histoire”

Michel Fugain’s 1972 song “Une Belle Histoire” has become a classic ballad of summer vacation, travel, and youth. The musical style is pretty dated, but that only adds to the kitchy fun of the song.

It also happens to use several forms of the past tense, so I created one of my signature fill-in-the-blanks activities with the lyrics. You can download the complete exercise as a pdf, using the following link:
