Jolis boutons des roses

Language: French (Français) after the English

Jolis boutons, boutons des roses
L'aurore a chassé la nuit,
Votre rêve s'est en fui.
Eveillez-vous, boutons des roses.
Jolis boutons nés de l'aurore,
Au bonheur ne croyez pas ;
Tout est souffrance ici-bas.
Jolis boutons nés de l'aurore !
Jolis boutons n'êtes-vous âmes
Qui nous apportez des cieux
les parfums délicieux,
Jolis boutons vous êtes âmes.
Roses des cieux !

Mooie rozeknoppen

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the French (Français)

Mooie knoppen, rozenknoppen
De morgen heeft de nacht verjaagd,
Je droom is vervlogen
Wordt wakker, rozenknoppen.

Mooie knoppen, geboren in de ochtend,
in het geluk geloof je niet;
alles is lijden wat je ziet.
Mooie knoppen, geboren in de ochtend,

Mooie knoppen, zijn jullie geen zielen
die ons de hemel brengen
de heerlijke geuren,
Mooie knoppen, jullie zijn zielen.
Hemelse rozen!
