“Je te veux” (“I want you”) is a song composed by Erik Satie to a text by Henry Pacory. A sentimental waltz with erotic lyrics, it was written for Paulette Darty, whose accompanist Satie had been for a period of time. The text consists of two verses and a repeated chorus.

The melody was performed to the public in 1903, at La Scala (not the Milan music hall), then a popular cabaret in Paris. In 1925, the song was recorded with Yvonne George as singer. “Je te veux” was also recorded by Mathé Altéry, Régine Crespin, Gigliola Negri and many other great artists.
Jazz vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant performed the song on Jacky Terrasson’s 2012 album Gouache. John Cage instructs the performer to do the piano and voice version as part of his “Sonnekus²”.
