This song is about how difficult it was for poor people to marry and settle down decently…

"La finforleta" and "la finforla" have no meaning.

Notes

*Nobody seems to know who "la Guirlan" was.

Comments

This traditional song was recorded in 1978 by the Provençal band Montjòia. On their LP sleeve, they mention that they sing only a few verses, so we can suppose there's a longer version somewhere.

You can hear a recording here.
