Dedans Paris, ville jolie

Language: French (Français)

Dedans Paris, ville jolie 
Un jour, passant mélancolie, 
Je pris alliance nouvelle 
A la plus gaie demoiselle 
Qui soit d'ici en Italie. 

D'honnêteté elle fut saisie, 
Et crois _ selon ma fantaisie _ 
Qu'il n'en est guère de plus belle 
Dedans Paris. 

Je ne vous la nommerai mie, 
Sinon que c'est ma grande amie, 
Car l'alliance se fit telle, 
Par un doux baiser que j'eus d'elle 
Sans penser aucune infamie 
Dedans Paris.
