Jackie (La Chanson de Jacky) - Jacques Brel lyrics
♪ Jackie (La Chanson de Jacky) ♪ official lyrics
And if one day I should become a singer with a Spanish bum
Who sings for women of great virtue
I'd sing to them with a guitar I borrowed from coffee bar
Well, what you don't know doesn't hurt you
My name would be Antonio and all my bridges I would burn
And if I gave them some they'd know, I expect something in
return
I'd have to get drunk every night to talk about virility
With some old grandmother who might
Be decked out like a Christmas tree

And tho' pink elephants I'd see, though I'd be drunk as I
could be
I'd sing the song they sang to me
About the time they called me Jackie
If I could be for only an hour, if I could be for an hour
every day
If I could be for just one little hour
Cute, cute, cute in a stupid-ass way

And if I joined the social whirl, became procurer of young
girls
Then I would have my own bordellos
My record would be number one and I'd sell records by the
ton
All sung by many other fellows
My name would then be handsome Jack and I'd sell boats of
opium
Whiskey that came from Twickenham, authentic queers and
phony virgins
I'd have a bank on every finger, a finger in every country
And every country ruled by me, I still know where I'd want
to be

Locked up inside my opium den, surrounded by some Chinamen
I'd sing the song that I sang then about the time they
called me Jackie
If I could be for only an hour, if I could be for an hour
every day
If I could be for just one little hour
Cute, cute, cute in a stupid-ass way

Now tell me, wouldn't it be nice that if one day in Paradise
I sang for all the ladies up there
And they would sing along with me, we'd be so happy there to
be
'Cause down below is really nowhere
My name would then be Jupiter and I would know where I was
going
And then I would become all knowing with my beard so long
and flowing
If I became deaf dumb and blind, because I pitied all
mankind
And broke my heart to make things right, I know that every
single night

When my angelic work was through, the angels and the devil
too
Would sing my childhood song to me
About the time they called me Jackie
If I could be for only an hour, if I could be for an hour
every day
If I could be for just one little hour
Cute, cute, cute in a stupid-ass way
