Le bateau rose

Language: French (Français)

Je m'embarquerai, si tu le veux,
Comme un gai marin quittant la grève,
Sur les flots dorés de tes cheveux,
Vers un paradis fleuri de rêve.

Ta jupe flottante au vent du soir
Gonflera ses plis comme des voiles,
Et quand sur la mer il fera noir,
Tes grands yeux seront mes deux étoiles.

Ton rire éclatant de vermillon
Fera le fanal de la grand'hune.
J'aurai ton ruban pour pavillon
Et ta blanche peau pour clair de lune.

Nos vivres sont faits et nos boissons
Pour durer autant que le voyage.
Ce sonts des baisers et des chansons
Dont nous griserons tout l'équipage.

Nous aborderons je ne sais où,
Là-bas, tout là-bas, sur une grève
Du beau pays bleu, sous un ciel fou,
Dans le paradis fleuri de rêve.
