Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I have nobody for my own
I'm so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish I had somebody to call on the phone

I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Letters, never a letter
I get no letters in the mail
I've been forgotten, yeah, forgotten
Oh, how I wonder how it is I failed

Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish I could go back home

La versione francese di Johnny Hallyday

QUAND REVIENT LA NUIT

La nuit
Quand revient la nuit
Tout seul je m'ennuie
Je pense à toi

Quand revient la nuit
La lune qui brille
Tu la vois aussi
Mais trop loin de moi

Je suis un soldat
Comme d'autres là- bas
J'attends le jour
Qui verra mon retour

Quand revient la nuit

Tout seul je m'ennuie
Ici le temps n'en finit pas

Je vais
Tout seul pour cacher
Le chagrin que j'ai
D'être séparé

Bien sûr j'ai changé
Ah, oui, changé
Plus fort que jamais
Je veux t'aimer

Je suis un soldat
Comme d'autres là-bas
Qui a laissé
Son amour à regret


La nuit
Quand revient la nuit
Je rêve au jour
De mon retour
