Que me fait la politique!
Royauté, sont des mots creux!
Tous les gens qui réflèchissent,
Ils blanchissent;
Or, voyez mes noirs cheveux!

Que d'autres cherchent la gloire
La victoire
Dans le sang jusqu'aux genoux!
Moi, je vais voir, si les roses
Sont écloses,
Et si le printemps est doux!

Aimer, chanter c'est ma bible!
Comme un crible,
Mon cerveau laisse passer
Sciences, philosophie.
La folie
Seule s'y peut amasser!
