Georges Moustaki – Dir’ qu’il faudra mourir un jour

Not Moustaki’s best-known song perhaps, but one so refreshingly irreverent. Listen to it on YouTube.
With a bonus: (not-altogether-correct) Spanish subtitles.

Dir’ qu’il faudra mourir un jour – 2009 Just to think we must die someday
Dir’ qu’il faudra mourir un jour
Quitter sa vie et ses amours
Dire qu’il faudra laisser tout ça
Pour Dieu sait quel au-delàRefrain
Dir’ qu’il faudra mourir un jour (2x)
C’est dur à penser, il faut bien le dire
=
Dir’ qu’il faudra rester tout seul
Dans la tristesse d’un linceul
Sans une fille pour la nuit
Sans une goutte de whisky
=
Refrain
=
Dir’ qu’il faudra, bon gré mal gré
Finir dans d’éternels regrets
Moi qui voudrais plus d’une vie
Pour passer toutes mes envies
=
Refrain
=
Dir’ qu’il faudra mourir d’ennui
En enfer ou en paradis
Passer toute une éternité
Sans jamais pouvoir s’évader
=
Refrain
=
Dir’ qu’il faudra mourir encor
Moi qui suis souvent déjà mort
Oui mort d’amour et de plaisir
De quoi pourrais-je mieux mourir ?
=
Dir’ qu’il faudra mourir un jour
C’est dur à penser, mon amour
Just to think we must die someday
Leave our life and our loves
Just to think we’ll have to leave all that
For God knows what hereafterChorus
Just to think we must die someday (2)
Is hard to conceive, I must say

=
Just to think we must stay alone
In the sadness of a shroud
Without a girl for the night
Without a drop of scotch
=
Chorus
=
Just to think we must willy-nilly
End up in eternal regrets
I who wish for more than one life
To fulfil all of my cravings
=
Chorus
=
Just to think we’ll have to die of boredom
In hell or in paradise
Spend an entire eternity
Without any way of escaping
=
Chorus
=
Just to think I must die again
I who often am already dead
Yes, dead from love and from pleasure
What else could I die of that’s better?
=
Just to think we must die someday
Is hard to conceive, my love
