Si j’avais un marteau – Claude François

Claude François

After another morning studying French conjunctions, I wondered if this would ever come together – if I will ever learn French

Then I heard the familiar melody of a French song Si j’avais un marteau, aka “If I had a hammer” and recognized the si (if) clause

Conditional Perfect Tense – If I had a hammer
Conditional Tense – I would hammer in the morning

Si j’avais un marteau (If I had a hammer)
Je cognerais le jour (I would knock the day)
ce serait le bonheur (that would be happiness)
