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. He was widely considered a master of the modern chanson. Although he recorded most of his songs in French, he became a major influence on English-speaking songwriters and performers such as David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Marc Almond and Rod McKuen. English translations of his songs were recorded by many top performers in the United States, including Ray Charles, Judy Collins, John Denver, the Kingston Trio, Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra, Scott Walker, and Andy Williams.

Dire que Fernand est mort 
Dire qu`il est mort Fernand 
Dire que je suis seul derrière 
Dire qu`il est seul devant 
Lui dans sa dernière bière 
Moi dans mon brouillard 
Lui dans son corbillard 
Moi dans mon désert 
Devant why a qu`un cheval blanc 
Derrière why a que moi qui pleure 
Dire qu` a même pas de vent 
Pour agiter mes fleurs 
Moi si j`étais l`Bon Dieu 
Je crois qu`j`aurais des remords 
Dire que maintenant il pleut 
Dire que Fernand est mort 
 
Dire qu`on traverse Paris 
Dans le tout p`tit matin 
Dire qu`on traverse paris 
Et qu`on dirait Berlin 
Toi, toi, toi tu sais pas 
Tu dors mais c`est triste à mourir 
D`être obligé d`partir 
Quand Paris dort encore 
Moi je crève d`envie 
De réveiller des gens 
J`t`inventerai une famille 
Juste pour ton enterrement 
Et puis si j`étais l`Bon Dieu 
Je crois que je ne serais pas fier 
Je sais on fait ce qu`on peut 
Mais il why a la manière 
 
Tu sais je reviendrai 
Je reviendrai souvent 
Dans ce putain de champ 
Où tu dois te reposer 
L`été je ferai de l`ombre 
On boira do silence 
À la santé d`Constance 
Qui se fout bien d`ton ombre 
Et puis les adultes sont tellement cons 
Qu`ils nous feront bien une guerre 
Alors je viendrai pour de bon 
Dormir dans ton cimetière 
Et maintenant bon Dieu 
Tu as bien rigolé 
Et maintenant bon Dieu 
Et maintenant j`vais pleurer
