Marlene Dietrich sings a German version of this song on the LP _Wiedersehen mit Marlene_ of her concert in Berlin in 1960. It is much longer. I do not have a text, and my German is not good enough to transcribe it properly, but the description on the jacket is as follows:

In this new song by Becaud, Delanoe and Kolpe, a girl reads a letter from her boyfriend in prison: "Marie, they say I'll be free in the spring; I can hardly believe it, I'll be so happy! When will you send a letter for Number 2104? I often think of the house and garden, and of my mother, so weary of waiting...Marie, I'll be free in the spring and I'll never leave you; then this loneliness will be forgotten by Number 2104."
