"Auprès de ma Blonde" is a classic song sung in the French language. Originating in the 17th century, it was popular as both military cadence and a drinking song.

In 2367, Jean-Luc Picard and his brother Robert sang the song together after fighting in the mud in the family vineyard. (TNG: "Family")

Later that year, an injured and delirious Picard sang the song to himself while slipping in and out of consciousness. (TNG: "Final Mission")

"Auprès de ma Blonde"
French English
Auprès de ma blonde

Auprès de ma blonde

How pleasant it is,
Near my sweetheart,
How pleasant it is to sleep.
"Blonde" is French slang, an affectionate term for a pretty wife, girlfriend or sweetheart.
