How did Piaf regret nothing?

I regret everything. I even kind of regret that I'm posting this.

I regret what I did/said last week!

She collaborated with Vichy regime. So post-WWII, this song was her way of being chauvinist and thumbing her nose at Americans, and even moreso, the English. She was saying, "though I'm French and I did what I had to do to survive, I'm glad things turned out as they did."

Which begs the statement, well, duh, yeah, bitch, of course you are - either way the war went, you would have survived.

She was a putain

She didn't write the song, so it's not her POV. Two French guys wrote it in 1956 and brought it to her in 1960. She liked it and recorded it. Then she dedicated the song to the French Foreign Legion. which was at war with Algeria at the time.

It's a philosophy not a lifestyle, like people who say their lives are a search for beauty. Really? Even when you shit?

I regret my entire life up until now, including responding to the OP.

"which was at war with Algeria at the time."

Algeria is an integral part of France.

R9, haven't you heard of the Algerian War? That's how Algeria gained its independence from France.
