The Convict’s Song (Chanson de Forçat)
Oh oh oh he who has never been under lock and key Oh oh oh will never know what it is to be free Me, yes, I know this, I am an escapee Oh oh What does it take to see a full blue sky and sea To look into a black sky for four days out of three I can look into that, I am an escapee It is really necessary to be in custody Oh oh oh oh oh to know the price of liberty Me, yes, I know this, I am an escapee Oh does one need to lose one’s ability to see To keep hope for the suns lost into infinity I see them shining, I am an escapee Oh oh oh he who has never been under lock and key Oh oh oh will never know what it is to be free Me, yes, I know this, I am an escapee To tell the truth I am Both a forger and a sham, A rip off man, a con The player of an illusion One who has been set free An eternal escapee A maker of holes And a breaker of bolts A jumper of (over) walls A breaker of locked doors A maker of the stars And a filer of bars
