Va, chanson, à tire d'aile au devant...

Available translation(s): ENG
Va, chanson, à tire d'aile au devant d'elle,
Et dis lui bien que dans mon coeur fidèle
Un rayon joyeux a lui et que voici le grand jour!

Entendez-vous longtemps muette
Et craintive, la gaîté,
Comme une vive alouette,
Dans le ciel clair a chanté,

Va donc, chanson ingénue,
Et, que sans nul regret vain
Elle soit la bienvenue.
Celle qui revient enfin!
