Pierrot Dandy

Language: French (Français)

D'un rayon de lune fantasque
Luisent les flacons de cristal
Sur le lavabo de santal
Du pâle dandy bergamasque.

La fontaine rit dans sa vasque
Avec un son clair de métal.
D'un rayon de Lune fantasque
Luisent les flacons de cristal.

Mais le seigneur à blanche basque,
Laissant le rouge végétal
Et le fard vert oriental
Maquille étrangement son masque
D'un rayon de Lune fantasque.

Pierrot Dandy

Language: German (Deutsch) after the French (Français)

Im phantast'schen Mondenstrahle
[Funkeln]1 Fläschchen und Krystalle.
Vor dem Waschtisch schmückt der fahle
[Dandy Pierrot]2 sich zum Balle.

Wasserstrahl in seiner Schale
Klirrt gleich singendem Metalle.
Im phantast'schen Mondenstrahle
[Funkeln]1 Fläschchen und Krystalle.

Pierrot, statt daß auf die schmale
Bleiche Lippe er das dralle
Rot des frischen Lebens male,
Schminkt sich, daß er Ihr gefalle,
Mit phantast'schem Mondenstrahle.
