The Ballad of Melody Nelson


Pour l'amitié, 
L'amitié entre hommes et femmes 
Impensable 
Parce que, il y a toujours 
Sous jacent 
Le désir animal 

This is the story of 
Melody Nelson 
Apart from me no one 
Ever took her in his arms 
Under her thumb 
Eyes in the sun 

Oh my Melody mine 

She has nothing but love 
Poor Melody Nelson 
Her life was more said than done 
But her days were numbered nil
Count fourteen falls 
Fifteen on calls 

A baby tiger was 
Melody Nelson 
Forever purring in the sun 
Just as dangerous as a child 
With a gun, shooting me down 

Oh my Melody mine 
Melody Nelson 
Still playing hurting games for fun 
As adorable as dumb 
Deaf to the sound 
To what's going down 






The English cover of Serge Gainsbourg's
La Ballade De Melody Nelson.
