Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien


Non ! Rien de rien
Non ! Je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait
Ni le mal tout ça m'est bien égal !

No, nothing of nothing
No! I don't feel sorry about nothing
Not the good things people have done to me
Not the bad things, it's all the same to me.

Avec mes souvenirs
J'ai allumé le feu
Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs
Je n'ai plus besoin d'eux !

With my memories
I lit up the fire
My troubles, my pleasures
I don't need them anymore

Balayées les amours
Et tous leurs trémolos
Balayés pour toujours
Je repars à zéro

Broomed away my love stories
And all their tremble
Broomed away for always
I start again from zero

Non ! Rien de rien
Non ! Je ne regrette rien
Car ma vie, car mes joies
Aujourd'hui, ça commence avec to

No, nothing of nothing
No! I don't feel sorry about nothing
Because my life, my joys
Today, they begin with you.

Edith Piaf

I have my theories about how this poem ended up on here. Nice new Banner by the way. Looks sharp!

The idea came from a comment made by Q. I thought Hank Williams and Edith Piaf made a nice picture frame for my post, "A Ballad For Callie."
