Portre of Prévert, Jacques

Quartier libre (French)

J'ai mis mon képi dans la cage

et je suis sorti avec l'oiseau sur la tęte


on ne salue plus

a demandé le commandant


on ne salue plus

a répondu l'oiseau

Ah bon

excusez moi je croyais qu'on saluait

a dit le commandant

Vous ętes tout excusé tout le monde peut se tromper

a dit l'oiseau.

Green Zone (English)

I put my helmet in the cage

and I left with the bird on my head


do we not salute anymore

demanded the sergeant


we don’t salute anymore

replied the bird

Oh I see

sorry I thought we were still saluting

said the sergeant

That’s okay everybody makes mistakes

said the bird.
