Korona Song Series - Chapter 15

"Dear Friends …

… those of you, who are more familiar with Alphaville’s repertoire might already know this month’s Corona song. But no reason to be disappointed. This is a brandnew recording in a complete revised arrangement with unexpected participants. Since we are in a moderate lock-down at the mo here in Germany, I asked members of the Gold family to contribute the backing-vocals. So I proudly announce my oldest daughter Lily and my lovely wife Anna as additional vocalists for this production which basically took place in our living room. The song itself is a „tragicocomico“ humoresque with a somehow bizarre happy ending. A bit of a mini operetta in 4 minutes time. A bedwarfed musical. A whimsical! A farcical exaggeration! The illegitimate bastard of Marc Bolan and the Jean Genie. In other words: a pop song made in Alphaville. Sounds promising? Well, if you want to find out more, what it’s all about, be prepared for November 30. Then you will know. Love & Peace Marian Gold."
------------------------------

Rather cryptic, especially as Marian gave the following extra clue:
"A comedy of sorts with a dead body in the end.
[...]Murder by Death"

Very puzzling!

Te raconter enfin qu'il faut aimer la vie et l'aimer même si je suis fatigué du mensonge et de la vérité que je croyais si belle, que je voulais aimer et qui est si cruelle que je m'y suis brulé ... .

I noticed a few differences in the text:
* I didn't tell you, DARLING, that you're the only one
* I'll walk your dog, I'll FEED your cat
* YOU won't forget the date we met

then of course the extra verse:
I REALLY LOVED YOU
BUT NOW IT'S OVER
BYE-BYE, BABY, BYE-BYE
C'EST LA VIE, MA CHÉRIE !
