J'AVAIS DEUX AMIS Titre original: "St. James' Infirmary" (Joe Primrose, J. Chaumelle / Joe Primrose) (1965) Eddy Mitchell (France) Hier encore j'avais deux amis Le premier s'appelait Buddy Hier encore j'avais deux amis Et l'autre s'appelait Eddy Un avion surgissant de l'ombre S'est écrasé dans un bruit d'enfer Un avion surgissant de l'ombre M'a privé de Buddy à jamais Un taxi aux portes de Londres Dérapant sur la chaussée mouillée Un taxi aux portes de Londres M'a fait perdre Eddy à tout jamais Le néon s'est éteint trop vite Et sur eux le rideau est tombé D'autres noms maintenant s'inscrivent Mais moi, je n' les oublierais jamais Hier encore j'avais deux amis Le premier s'appelait Buddy Hier encore j'avais deux amis Et l'autre s'appelait Eddy. ***** ST.

I went down to the St James Infirmary Saw my baby there She stretched out on a long white table So sweet, so cold, so fair Let her go, let her go, God bless her Wherever she may be She can look this wide world over But she'll never find a sweet man like me When I die want you to dress me in straight lace shoes I wanna a boxback coat and a Stetson hat Put a twenty dollar gold piece on my watch chain So the boys'll know that I died standing flat (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2004)
