An original song by Noëlle Rollings. All rights reserved.


Born in searing heat, where the sea and mountains meet
It was day three of my grief when the magic began.
And as I held you to my breast, I forgot about the rest,
It was clear our love would last ‘til Kingdom come.

And I could hear you cry
Could you hear me cry?

There were phases as you grew, like Picasso’s shades of blue,
Didn’t matter what we said or what we’d do.
So infectious was your charm, it would get us every time,
Sharing laughter was the only way to go.

And you can hear me cry –
El Toro!

A renegade in school, not accepting any fool, who should
Bend the truth or strut about the place.
Gaining kudos from your peers, you were
Wise beyond your years but your
Innocence illuminates your face.

And I have watched this man appear –
Demonstrating, entertaining, dedicating, celebrating,
Imitating, captivating, graduating, emigrating.

El Toro!

(El Toro, el Toro, el Toro…)

Hear me cry – El Toro!
Hear me cry – El Toro!


from French Exchange, track released July 8, 2015
Featuring Noëlle Rollings on vocals, piano and percussion, Graham Hutton on trumpet, Chris Bundy on tenor sax, Bob Martin on trombone, Steve Dow on electric guitar and Jim Rintoul on electric bass.

Noëlle et les Papillons Exeter, UK

An adventurous soul, I re-work my observations and experiences into songs and soundscapes. After performing on Jazz circuits abroad and at home for many years, I have finally created my first original body of music, French Exchange.

This debut album brings together talented friends and musicians; les Papillons and explores my musical journey via recent travels. Thanks & enjoy, Noëlle Rollings
