French giant of the chanson, Gilbert Bécaud, known as "Monsieur 100,000 Volts," wrote and recorded the original version of "What Now My Love" in its original French, as "Et Maintenant," in 1961. Bécaud was born in Toulon on 24 October, 1927. His musical education was interrupted when he joined the French Resistance during the Second World War. In 1948 he began writing songs, and in 1953, at the encouragement of Edith Piaf, he also turned to singing. Jane Morgan had already had a successful hit with an English-language cover of Bécaud's "Le Jour Où La Pluie Viendra" ("The Day The Rains Came") in 1958 and in 1962 she repeated the process when she recorded the original English-language version of "What Now My Love" with lyrics by Carl Sigman.
Gilbert Bécaud died on 18 December, 2001.
In addition to his frequent on-stage performances, Elvis made a home recording of the song in 1966 and that version can be found on "The Home Recordings."

What now my love
Now that you left me
How can I live through another day
Watching my dreams turn into ashes
And all my hopes into bits of clay
Once I could see, once I could feel
Now I am numb
I've become unreal

I walk the night, oh, without a goal
Stripped of my heart, my soul
What now my love
Now that it's over
I feel the world closing in on me
Here come the stars
Tumbling around me
And there's the sky where the sea should be

What now my love
Now that you're gone
I'd be a fool to go on and on
No one would care, no one would cry
If I should live or die

What now my love
Now there is nothing
Only my last goodbye
Only my last goodbye
