Venez jusqu'à ces sables d'or

Language: French (Français) after the English

Venez jusqu'à ces sables d'or
et prenez vous les mains alors
après le baiser et la révérence
et les hautes vagues feront silence
légèrement ci et là danserez
puis doux esprits chanterez


Chut! chut! 
le chien de garde aboie
Chut! chut! 
j'entends de chantecler 
le cri strident.

Come to These Golden Sands

Language: English after the French (Français)

Come to these golden sands 
and take each others' hands, 
after the kiss and the bow, 
and the high swells will be silent. 
Lightly here and there you will dance, 
then gentle spirits, you will sing. 
Shh! Shh! the guard dog is barking. 
Shh! Shh! I hear Chanticleer's strident cry. 

Your father rests at the bottom of the sea. 
His bones will become pink coral, 
his eyes pearls. 
Nothing of his shall be lost, 
for the seawater will soon change them 
into something rich and strange. 
Toll his knell, sea nymphs.
Shh! Shh! Listen to them!
