Écoutez la chanson

Language: French (Français)

Écoutez la chanson 
du rossignol volage, 
Aux bergers du village.
Il donne la leçon, écoutez ! 
Ah! Écoutez la chanson ! 
Chantons, chantons l'amour.

Tant que le printemps dure, 
Chantons, chantons l'amour.
Tant que le printemps dure, 
Sous la jeune verdure
Et la nuit et le jour,
Chantons, chantons l'amour.

Il revient tous les ans, 
Dit une pastourelle, 
Car la rose nouvelle. 
Renaît chaque printemps. 
Il revient tous les ans. 
Ah ! Non, non… l'amour ne revient pas.
Pastourelle frivole. 
L'amour ne revient pas,
Ô pastourelle frivole. 
Dès que l'amour s'envole, 
C'est pour toujours, hélas !
L'amour ne revient pas.
