Mignonne blonde aux yeux de flamme,
De grâce dis le moi tout bas,
N'aurais-tu point gardé mon âme,
Je ne la retrouve pas!
Hélas! en vain je la cherche à la ronde,
Rends-moi la pauvre vagabonde,
Ou laisse moi l'oublier dans tes bras.

Peutêtre à cette heure,
Sûre de toi, 
Pendant que je pleure,
Ris-tu de moi!
Et tu tiens la rebelle 
Danssa prison,
Sans te douter, cruelle,
Que j'en perds la raison!

O parle, apaise ma fièvre brûlante,
Qu'un mot tombé de ta lèvre charmante;
M'arrache aux ombres du trépas.
