Chanson de Thibaut

Language: French (Français) after the French (Français)

Las ! si j'avais le pouvoir d'oublier
Sa beauté, sa beauté, son bien dire,
Et son très-doux, très-doux regarder,
  Finirais mon martyre ;
Mais las ! mon cœur n'en puis ôter.
  Est grand affolage
  à moi d'espérer !
  Mais tel fervage
  Donne courage
  À tout endurer.
Et puis, comment, comment oublier
Sa beauté, sa beauté, son bien dire,
Et son très-doux, très-doux regarder !
  Mieux aime mon martyre.
