La Grâce exilée

Language: French (Français)

Va-t-'en va-t'en mon arc-en-ciel
Allez-vous-en couleurs charmantes
Cet exil t'est essentiel
Infante aux écharpes changeantes.

Et l'arc-en-ciel est exilé
Puisqu'on exile qui l'irise
Mais un drapeau s'est envolé
Prendre ta place au vent de bise.

Grace in exile

Language: English after the French (Français)

 Go away, go away, rainbow.
 Go away, charming colours.
 You need this exile,
 Princess with the many-hued scarves.
 
 And the rainbow went into exile,
 as those who lend their colours are exiled,
 but a flag flew off 
 to take its place in the wind.
