“He played the piano [abalone] standing up
This is perhaps a detail for you
But for me it means a lot
That means he was free
Happy to be here
Nevertheless.”

[Il jouait du piano debout (He played the upright piano),
a song written by Michel Berger and performed by France Gall,
from the album Paris, France (1980), track 1]
