Dans Londres, la grand ville
il est un être plus seul
qu'un naufragé
dans son île
et qu'un mort dans un linceul
Grand badaud petit rentier
Jeanne voilà
son métier.

A Douvres un original
tombe un jour dans le chenal
il appelle au sauvetage 
Il se cramponne au récif 
mais vers lui nul coeur ne nage 
Adèle, ainsi meur l'oisif.

Le grandchinois de Lancastre
vous attire avec des fleurs
puis vous inonde d'odeurs...
bientôt sa pipe est votre astre!
Du lys au pavot, Cécile,
la route, hélas, est docile.

Le Lord prévôt d'Edimbourg
Dit que l'amour est chimère
Mais un jour il perd sa mère
Ses larmes coulent toujours
Irène petite Irène
l'Amour c'est la grande peine.

Qu'as-tu vu dans ton exil?
Disait à Spencer sa femme,
à Rome, à Vienne,
à Pergame, à Calcutta? Rien! fit-il
Veux-tu découvrir le monde?
Ferme tes yeux, Rosemonde.
