  1. Someone I know started singing this song today, it’s a long time since i had hear it.

    As I often do i did some research. Terry Jacks was Canadian and produced a recording of this by the Beach Boys, but they decided not to release it so he recorded it himself.

    But it was a re-write of another song, Le Moribund by Belgian singer Jacques Brel. The melody is familiar but has a very different feel to it, for good reason when you know the lyrics.
    Here it is sung in French, with English subtitles.
