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.

Mon ami est un type énorme
Il aime la trompette et le clairon
Tout en préférant le clairon
Qu'est une trompette en uniforme
Mon ami est une valeur sûre
Qui dit souvent, sans prétention
Qu'à la minceur des épluchures
On voit la grandeur des nations

Subséquemment, subséquemment
Subséquemment que j'comprends pas
Pourquoi souvent, ses compagnons
L'appellent
L'appellent
Caporal casse-pompon

Mon ami est un doux poète
Dans son jardin, quand vient l'été
Faut le voir planter ses mitraillettes
Ou bien creuser ses petites tranchées
Mon ami est homme plein d'humour
C'est lui, c'est lui qui a trouvé ce bon mot
Que je vous raconte à mon tour
"Ich slaffen at si auuz wihr prellen zie"

Subséquemment, subséquemment
Subséquemment que j'comprends pas
Pourquoi souvent, ses compagnons
L'appellent
L'appellent
Caporal casse-pompon

Mon ami est un doux rêveur
Pour lui Paris, c'est une caserne
Et Berlin, un petit champ de fleurs
Qui va de Moscou à l'Auvergne
Son rêve, revoir Paris au printemps
Redéfiler à la tête de son groupe
En chantant comme tous les vingt-cinq ans
"Baisse ta gaine Gretchen que je baise ta croupe (ein, zwei)"

Subséquemment, subséquemment
Subséquemment que nous ne comprenons
Comment nos amis les Franzosen
Ils osent, ils osent l'appeler
Caporal casse-pompon (ein, zwei)
