Les feuilles mortes, en japonais

“Autumn Leaves,” composed by Joseph Kosma in 1945 with French lyrics by poet Jacques Prévert and titled “Les feuilles mortes” (“Dead Leaves”). The song became “Autumn Leaves” in 1947 when Johnny Mercer added English lyrics. The song was a big hit for Nat King Cole in 1955, who also recorded “Kareha” (“Dead Leaves”), this Japanese version. Can’t find the name of the Japanese lyricist.
