Prophéties turgotines

Language: French (Français)

On verra tous les Etats
Entre eux se confondre
Les pauvres sur leurs grabats
Ne plus se morfondre
Des biens on fera des lots,
Qui tendront les gens égaux
Le bel oeuf à pondre, ô gué,
Le bel oeuf à pondre.

Du même pas marcheront
Noblesse et toture
Les Français retourneront
Au droit de nature
Adieu parlement et lois
Et ducs et princes et rois
La bonne aventure, ô gué,
La bonne aventure.

Puis devenus vertueux
Par philosophie
Les Français auront des dieux
A leur fantaisie
Nous reverrons un oignon
A Jésus damer le pion
Ah! quelle harmonie, ô gué,
Ah! quelle harmonie.

Plus de moines langoureux,
De plaintives nonnes
Au lieu d'adresser aux cieux
Matines et nonnes
On verra ces malheureux
Danser, abjurer leurs voeux
Galante chaconne, ô gué,
Galante chaconne.

Partisans des novations
La fière séquelle
Nous rendra des nations,
Le parfait modèle
Et cet honneur, nous devrons
Au Turgot et compagnons,
Besogne immortelle, ô gué,
Besogne immortelle.
