Jacques Brel

Jacques Brel (French pronunciation: ​[ʒak bʁɛl]; 8 April 1929 – 9 October 1978) was a Belgian singer-songwriter who composed and performed literate, thoughtful, and theatrical songs that generated a large, devoted following in France initially, and later throughout the world.

Pour un peu de tendresse
Je donnerais les diamants
Que le diable caresse
Dans mes coffres d'argent
Pourquoi crois-tu, la belle
Que les marins au port
Vident leurs escarcelles
Pour offrir des trésors
A de fausses princesses
Pour un peu de tendresse?

Pour un peu de tendresse
Je changerais de visage
Je changerais d'ivresse
Je changerais de langage
Pourquoi crois-tu, la belle
Qu'au sommet de leurs chants
Empereurs et ménestrels
Abandonnent souvent
Puissances et richesses
Pour un peu de tendresse?

Pour un peu de tendresse
Je t'offrirais le temps
Qu'il reste de jeunesse
A l'été finissant
Pourquoi crois-tu, la belle
Que monte ma chanson
Vers la claire dentelle
Qui danse sur ton front
Penché vers ma détresse
Pour un peu de tendresse?
