Brel's first performance of his song known to the English speaking world as My Childhood. He describes his unhappiness and how it all changed when he met his first girlfriend, later to be his wife. Recorded 1966. This is the first performance of this song. Later, some of the words were changed for the recordingon Barclay.

The lyrics are breathtaking in this version. Brel is totally fearless in describing the power struggle between adults and children, and how childhood and adulthood finally powerfully meet. Thank you for the video. Love love love.
