Une chanson douce (also known as Le loup, la biche et le chevalier) is a French song from 1950 performed by Henri Salvador. It is a standard children's song and is a classic in Henri Salvador's repertoire.
The story of the song
The song tells the fairy tale of a doe rescued by a knight from the clutches of the wolf, who then transforms into a beautiful princess.
Une chanson douce does not resemble the songs Henri Salvador usually sings, his repertoire being mainly fantasy. But he liked the lyrics, which reminded him of his mother's lullabies.
Thanks to Salvador's tender and reassuring voice, the song immediately appealed to the public and became a classic lullaby.
