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.

Ils parlent de la mort
Comme tu parles d'un fruit
Ils regardent la mer
Comme tu regardes un puits

Les femmes sont lascives
Au soleil redouté
Et s'il n'y a pas d'hiver
Cela n'est pas l'été

La pluie est traversière
Elle bat de grain en grain
Quelques vieux chevaux blanc
Qui fredonnent Gauguin

Et par manque de brise
Le temps s'immobilise
Aux Marquises

Du soir, montent des feux
Et des points de silence
Qui vont s'élargissant
Et la lune s'avance

Et la mer se déchire
Infiniment brisée
Par des rochers qui prirent
Des prénoms affolés

Et puis, plus loin, des chiens
Des chants de repentance
Et quelques pas de deux
Et quelques pas de danse

Et la nuit est soumise
Et l'alizé se brise
Aux Marquises

Le rire est dans le cœur
Le mot dans le regard
Le cœur est voyageur
L'avenir est au hasard

Et passent des cocotiers
Qui écrivent des chants d'amour
Que les sœurs d'alentour 
Ignorent d'ignorer

Les pirogues s'en vont 
Les pirogues s'en viennent
Et mes souvenirs deviennent
Ce que les vieux en font

Veux-tu que je te dise?
Gémir n'est pas de mise
Aux Marquises
