Here, in this setting, Alain Jacques proposes the singer to end by whisttling away the song, as in a movie or the theatre. An English rendition has been attempted but here is the literal translation (AJ):
1. If you believe that I will tell Who I dare to love, I would not for a kingdom Give you her name.
2. We are going to sing all around, If you would, That I adore her and that she is fair Like the wheat.
3. I do whatever her fancy Wants to order me, And I could, if she needed my life, Give it to her.
4. From the pain that a unrecognized love Makes us suffer, I bear my soul torn To death.
5. But I love too much to tell Who I dare to love, And I want to die for my sweetie Without giving away her name.
