The husband drinks alcohol to have the strength to tell his wife everything he thinks about her. He says the worst possible things to her, but then he adds, that a little effort and a smiling face, and things could be just as before. In the end he calls her: "Come close to me. Let yourself go".
In 1995 Aznavour recorded a version of "Tu t'laisses aller" in duet with Liza Minnelli (Paris — Palais des Congrès: Intégrale du spectacle).
