About Une belle histoire

"Une belle histoire" is a French song written by Michel Fugain (music) and Pierre Delanoë (lyrics). Featured on the 1972 album Fugain et le Big Bazar, it was released as a single that same year, selling over 800,000 copies and topping the charts in France. The lyrics, telling of a brief encounter between two young strangers ("they hid in a large wheat field and let the currents carry them away"), were considered risqué at the time. Fugain initially imagined the action to take place along U. S. Route 66, but Delanoë relocated the story in France."Une belle histoire" has been covered in a variety of languages. In 1972, Franco Califano wrote an Italian version of the song named "Un'estate fa", which was first released as a single by the band Homo Sapiens. In 1973, it was recorded in Dutch as "Zoals Een Mooi Verhaal" by Ann Christy and in Turkish as "Kim ayırdı sevenleri" by Tanju Okan, Nilüfer and the Modern Folk Üçlüsü.

C'est un beau roman, c'est une belle histoire
C'est une romance d'aujourd'hui
Il rentrait chez lui, là-haut vers le brouillard
Elle descendait dans le Midi, le Midi
Ils se sont trouvés au bord du chemin
Sur l'autoroute des vacances
C'était sans doute un jour de chance
Ils avaient le ciel à portée de main
Un cadeau de la providence
Alors pourquoi penser au lendemain

Ils se sont cachés dans un grand champ de blé
Se laissant porter par les courants
Se sont racontés leurs vies qui commençaient
Ils n'étaient encore que des enfants, des enfants
Qui s'étaient trouvés au bord du chemin
Sur l'autoroute des vacances
C'était sans doute un jour de chance
Qui cueillirent le ciel au creux de leurs mains
Comme on cueille la providence
Refusant de penser au lendemain

C'est un beau roman, c'est une belle histoire
C'est une romance d'aujourd'hui
Il rentrait chez lui, là-haut vers le brouillard
Elle descendait dans le midi, le midi
Ils se sont quittés au bord du matin
Sur l'autoroute des vacances
C'était fini le jour de chance
Ils reprirent alors chacun leur chemin
Saluèrent la providence en se faisant un signe de la main

Il rentra chez lui, là-haut vers le brouillard
Elle est descendue là-bas dans le Midi
C'est un beau roman, c'est une belle histoire
C'est une romance d'aujourd'hui
