N is for Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien

N

For this A-Z Blogging Challenge entry, I’m gonna share one of my favorite foreign (and classic) songs.


Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien
By: Edith Piaf

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!

Non, rien de rien
Non, je ne regrette rien
C’est payé, balayé, oublié
Je me fous du passé!

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

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

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!

Non, rien de rien
Non, je ne regrette rien
Car ma vie, car mes joies
Aujourd’hui, ça commence avec toi!

Yes, the song is French. It’s a very classic piece. If you don’t know Edith Piaf, then it’s time to Google her and discover her amazing (yet tragic) life! 🙂

By the way, here’s the English translation:

No, nothing of nothing
No, I don’t regret anything
Neither the good things people have done to me
Nor the bad things, it’s all the same to me.

No, nothing of nothing
No! I don’t regret anything
It’s paid for, swept away, forgotten,
I don’t care about the past!

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

The lovers are all swept away
And all of their drama
Swept away forever
I start again from zero

No, nothing of nothing
No, I don’t regret anything
Neither the good things people have done to me
Nor the bad things, it’s all the same to me.

No, nothing of nothing
No, I don’t regret anything
Because my life, because my joys
Today that starts with you!

(Lyrics and translation: frenchlearner.com)

An amazing song by an equally-amazing songstress. Edith Piaf, everybody! *claps*
