Juliette Gréco - La belle vie (English translation)

English translation

The Good Life

In pet shops
There are animals
That spend all their life
Behind bars
And us, we are the brothers
Of this poor livestock
 
People shouldn't feel sorry for us,
People should blame us
We let others take from us
What we had done?
Children of the corridors,
Children of wind gusts
The world kicked us out,
Life messed us up
 
Our mother is misery
And our father is the bistro,
Raised in drawers
Instead of cribs
We were dropped
All alone in the stream,
Since childhood
Parked into jails
We are sleeping in cages
And going round in circles
Without ever seeing the landscape,
Without ever singing any song
 
People shouldn't feel sorry for us,
People should blame us
We let others take from us
What we had done?
Children of the corridors,
Children of wind gusts
The world kicked us out,
Life messed us up
