Little holes, little holes, always little holes (Rediscovering Serge Gainsbourg)

One of Serge Gainsbourg's earliest works from 1958 about a little man who works in a hole, and the holes that consume his being.

From Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited, a reinterpretation of “Le poin├žonneur des Lilas". The lyrics are changed: while the original protagonist is situated in Paris, this new approach plays in London, different job, same problem.
