The album was to transmit to future generations this patrimony of gay songs, light but not befitting and “charming and well written.” According to his words “These are not rhymes […] a little tartignoles […] [3] It was the pianist Angelo Zurzolo, who followed Enzo Enzo on his previous “piano voice” tour, ‘We have arrangements, recording and mixing of the album.

“Juste quelqu’un de bien” translated:  “Just a nice person”

Enzo Enzo”


Debout devant ses illusions

Une femme que plus rien ne dérange

Détenue de son abandon

Son ennui lui donne le change

Que retient elle de sa vie

Qu’elle pourrait revoir en peinture

Dans un joli cadre verni

En évidence sur un mur

Un mariage en Technicolor

Un couple dans les tons pastels

Assez d’argent sans trop d’efforts

Pour deux trois folies mensuelles

Elle a rêvé comme tout le monde

Qu’elle tutoierait quelques vedettes

Mais ses rêves en elle se fondent

Maint’nant son espoir serait d’être

Juste quelqu’un de bien

Quelqu’un de bien

Le cœur à portée de main

Juste quelqu’un de bien

Sans grand destin

Une amie à qui l’on tient

Juste quelqu’un de bien

Quelqu’un de bien

Il m’arrive aussi de ces heures

Où ma vie se penche sur le vide

Coupés tous les bruits du moteur

Lyrics in English

A woman that nothing disturbs

Detained from his abandonment

His boredom gives him the change

What she retains of her life

That she could review in painting

In a pretty varnished frame

Highlight on a wall

A Wedding in Technicolor

A couple in pastel shades

Enough money without too much effort

For two three monthly follies

She dreamed like everyone else

That it tutoierait some celebrities

But her dreams in her are based

Desiring his hope would be to be

Just someone good

A good person

The heart at your fingertips

Just someone good

Without great destiny

A friend who is

Just someone good

A good person

I also have these hours

Where my life looks at the void

Cut all engine noises

Above …
