"Not In Nottingham" is a song featured in the film Robin Hood. It takes place with rain and the animals in jail. This song is sung by Alan-A-Dale (Roger Miller).

The song was covered by Mumford & Sons during their sessions with Daytrotter.

A short reprise is sun offscreen by Alan-a-Dale when Friar Tuck is taken to the jail by the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Lyrics

Every town
Has its ups and down
Sometimes ups
Outnumber the downs
But not in Nottingham

I'm inclined to believe
If we were so down
We'd up and leave
We'd up and fly if we had wings for flyin'
Can't you see the tears we're cryin'?
Can't there be some happiness for me?
Not in Nottingham

Reprise

Every town
Has its ups and down
Sometimes ups
Outnumber the downs
But not in Nottingham

French version

The french version is actually rather different from the original. You can see it here (the litteral translation of the french lyrics are in italic).

Des haut des bas,

Ups and downs,

Il y en a partout…

You can find some everywhere…

Mais des drames !

But the dramas !

Il y en a surtout…

Most of them are

Ici à Nottingham.

Here in Nottingham


Et nos cœurs son trop las

And our hearts are too tired

Pour vouloir partir…

To want to leave…

Pour pourvoir fuir…

To be able to escape…

Que n’avons-nous d’ailes pour nous envoler ?

Why haven't we wings to fly away ?

Qui prendra pitié de nos larmes ?

Who shall take pity of our tears ?

Y a-t-il une âme qui priera pour moi…

Is there a soul who shall pray for me…

Loin de Nottingham ?

Far from Nottingham ?

Reprise

Des haut des bas,

Ups and downs,

Il y en a partout…

You can find some everywhere…

Mais des drames !

But the dramas !

Il y en a surtout…

Most of them are

Ici à Nottingham.

Here in Nottingham.
