Beau chevalier qui partez pour la guerre

Language: French (Français)

Beau chevalier qui partez pour la guerre,
Qu'allez-vous faire
Si loin d'ici ?
Voyez-vous pas que la nuit est profonde,
Et que le monde
N'est que souci ?

Vous qui croyez qu'une amour délaissée
De la pensée
S'enfuit ainsi,
Hélas ! hélas ! chercheurs de renommée,
Votre fumée
S'envole aussi.

Beau chevalier qui partez pour la guerre,
Qu'allez-vous faire
Si loin de nous ?
J'en vais pleurer, moi qui me laissais dire
Que mon sourire
Était si doux.
