„Ich werde in meinem Paradies die Engel, die Heiligen und Luzifer hören, die mir dieses Lied der alten Zeit singen.“

» Even if one day in Knokke-le-Zoute
I become as I dread to
A singer for women drawing to an end
Even if I sing „Mi Corazon“ to them
With a bandoneoning voice
Of an Argentine from Carcassone
Even if I’m called Antonio
That I burn down my last fires
In exchange for some presents
Madam, I do what I can
Even if I get drunk on mead
To talk better about virility
To grannies adorned
Like Chritsmas trees

I know that in my drunkography
Every night for pink elephants
I’ll be singing the gloomy song
About the days when my name was Jacky

Being one hour, just one hour
Being one hour, one hour sometimes
Being one hour, just for one hour
Handsome, handsome, handsome and stupid at the same time

Even if one day in Macau
I become governor of a gambling joint
Surrounded by yearning women
Even if, tired of being a singer,
I became blackmailer there
And that it’s the others who sing
Even if I’m called Handsome Serge
That I sell boats of opium
Whisky from Clermont-Ferrand****
Real faggots, fake virgins
That I have a bank round each finger
And a finger in each country
And that each country is mine
I still know that every night
All alone at the far end of my den
For an audience of old Chinese people
I’ll sing my own song again
About the days when my name was Jacky

Even if one day in heaven
I become as I would be surprised to
A singer for white-winged women
Even if I sing hallelujah to them
Regretting the days when I was down there
Where it’s not everyday Sunday
Even if they call me God the Father
The one who’s in the phone book
Between Dieulefit and God bless you
Even if I grow a beard
Even if, always too good-natured,
I break my heart and my sheer mind
Wanting to comfort people
I still know that every night
I’ll hear in my paradise
The angels, the saints and Lucifer
Singing to me this old time song
About the days when my name was Jacky «
