Serge Reggiani - Almost nothing would be enough


Original Title: "Il suffirait de presque rien"
Almost nothing would be enough
Maybe ten years less
For me to tell you "I love you"

For me to take you by the hand
To take you to St Germain
To offer you another cream coffee

But why pretend
Girl comon look at me
And see the wrinkles parting us

What's the point of puting on an act
Of the old lover who feels younger
You would pretend to believe it yourself

Really what would we look like?
I already hear the comments:

She is pretty
How can he still please her
She in spring, he in winter

Almost nothing would be enough
still noone you know well
goes back through his youth

Don't be stupid and understand
If I was twenty like you
I'd cover you in promises

There is your smile
turning to water and capsizing
I don't want you to be sad

Imagine your life tomorrow
Next to a clown busy
making his last ring turn

Really what would you look like
I already hear the comments

She is pretty
How can he still please her
She in spring, he in winter

It's someone else than me tomorrow
Who will take you to St Germain
To take the first cream coffee

Almost nothing was enough
Maybe ten years less
For me to tell you "I love you"

On television in 1995:
