Gondolier du Rialto
Mon château c'est la lagune,
Mon jardin c'est le Lido.
Mon rideau le clair de lune.
Gondolier du grand canal,
Pour fanal j'ai la croisée
Où s'allument tous les soirs,
Tes yeux noirs, mon épousée.
Ma gondole est aux heureux,
Deux à deux je la promène,
Et les vents légers et frais
Sont discret sur mon domaine.
J'ai passé dans les amours,
Plus de jours et de nuits folles,
Que Venise n'a d'ilots
Que ses flots n'ont de gondoles.
