One of the worst #1 hits ever- one of the worst songs ever. It was originally written and recorded by Jacques Brel a Belgium singer- songwriter. Rod McKuen translated it in 1964 and The Kingston Trio first recorded it in English and a decade later it fell to Terry Jacks who had a monster hit all over the world with it. My sister and sister-in-law who were born a week apart love this song. My sister would play the single and cry. My sister-in-law loves the song because it mentions here name.
