"Le chant de Mallory" was the entry performed by Rachel Ros at the Eurovision Song Contest 1964 for France. As with all of the other 1964 entries, the tapes are lost, so her full live performance in Copenhagen is unknown, and only the radio sounds are heard.

Lyrics

Redis-moi, Mallory, la chanson que tu me chantais
Ta chanson de l'été dans le bleu du ciel irlandais
Tu n'avais que seize ans, moi, j'étais encore une enfant
Et la nuit qui venait nous avait pris pour des amants

Toi, Mallory, tu chantais pour moi, le vent mélait nos cheveux
Et je ne sais plus très bien pourquoi nous avons fermé les yeux
Souviens-toi, Mallory, nous avons attendu le jour
En rêvant, tous les deux, je crois bien que c'était l'amour

Où est-elle, Mallory, la chanson que tu me chantais?
Ta chanson de l'été dans le bleu du ciel irlandais
Le soleil se couchait en jetant de l'or dans tes yeux
On jouait à s'aimer, mais pour toi ce n'était qu'un jeu

Oh Mallory, où est-il ce chant, ce chant d'amour de l'été?
Vers quel pays est parti le vent, le vent qui l'a remporté?
Ta chanson, Mallory, je la garderai pour toujours
Car c'était la chanson, la chanson d'un premier amour

Lalala lalala... lalalalala lalala...
Car c'était la chanson, la chanson d'un premier amour[1]

Tell me again, Mallory, the song you sang to me
Your summer song in the blue of the Irish sky
You were only sixteen years old, I still was a child
And the night that came took us for lovers

You, Mallory, you sang for me, the wind ruffled our hair
And I don't know anymore very well why we closed our eyes
Remember, Mallory, we've waited for the day
By dreaming, both of us, I really believe that it was love

Where is it, Mallory, the song you sang to me?
Your summer song in the blue of the Irish sky
The sun set, throwing gold in your eyes
We acted that we loved each other, but for you it was just a game

Oh Mallory, where is that song, that summer love song?
To which country did the wind go, the wind that carried it off?
I'll keep your song forever, Mallory
Because it was the song, the song of a first love

Lalala lalala... lalalalala lalala...
Because it was the song, the song of a first love
