Quand on perd, par triste occurrence
Language: French (Français) 
Quand on perd, par triste occurrence,
      Son espérance
      Et sa gaieté,
Le remède au mélancolique,
      C’est la musique
      Et la beauté !

Plus oblige et peut davantage
      Un beau visage
      Qu’un homme armé,
Et rien n’est meilleur que d’entendre
      Air doux et tendre
      Jadis aimé !
