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.

Je m'appelle Zangra et je suis lieutenant
Au fort de Belonzio qui domine la plaine
D'où l'ennemi viendra qui me fera héros
En attendant ce jour, je m'ennuie quelquefois
Alors, je vais au bourg voir les filles en troupeaux
Mais elles rêvent d'amour et moi de mes chevaux

Je m'appelle Zangra et déjà capitaine
Au fort de Belonzio qui domine la plaine
D'où l'ennemi viendra qui me fera héros
En attendant ce jour, je m'ennuie quelquefois
Alors, je vais au bourg voir la jeune Consuelo
Mais elle parle d'amour et moi de mes chevaux

Je m'appelle Zangra, maintenant commandant
Au fort de Belonzio qui domine la plaine
D'où l'ennemi viendra qui me fera héros
En attendant ce jour, je m'ennuie quelquefois
Alors, je vais au bourg, boire avec Don Pedro
Il boit à mes amours et moi à ses chevaux

Je m'appelle Zangra, je suis vieux colonel
Au fort de Belonzio qui domine la plaine
D'où l'ennemi viendra qui me fera héros
En attendant ce jour, je m'ennuie quelquefois
Alors, je vais au bourg, voir la veuve de Pedro
Je parle enfin d'amour mais elle de mes chevaux

Je m'appelle Zangra, hier trop vieux général
J'ai quitté Belonzio qui domine la plaine
Et l'ennemi est là, je ne serai pas héros
