I didn't say' I oppose the death penalty' I wrote The Gorilla" Georges Brassens. In 1952, Brassens Gorilla brought justice to a young judge who sent a man to the guillotine in his song. By 1981, France had abolished the death penalty; the last man was sent to the guillotine in 1977. The United States remains the only country in the Western world still to employ it. Perhaps Brassens' Gorilla hasn't gotten there yet. Here he is. Thanks to philipechek of Paris and YouTube for helping with translation of this song.
