Fantoches

Language: French (Français)

Scaramouche et Pulcinella,
Qu'un mauvais dessein rassembla,
Gesticulent noirs sous la lune,

Cependant l'excellent docteur Bolonais
Cueille avec lenteur des simples
Parmi l'herbe brune.

Lors sa fille, piquant minois,
Sous la charmille, en tapinois,
Se glisse demi-nue,

En quête de son beau pirate espagnol,
Dont un [langoureux]1 rossignol
Clame la détresse à tue-tête.

die eine böse Absicht zusammenführte,
gestikulieren schwarz unter dem Mond, la, la, la...

Währenddessen pflückt der ausgezeichnete Doktor
Bolonais gemächlich
Heilkräuter im braunen Gras.

Seine Tochter jedoch, mit dem reizenden Gesichtchen,
schleicht sich heimlich halbnackt
durch den Laubengang davon, la, la, la...

Sie sucht Ihren schönen spanischen Piraten,
dessen Not eine verliebte Nachtigall
aus vollem Halse verkündet. La, la, la...
