1er mouvement : Allegro

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Le voilà parti.
Il va gaiement à son bureau en se "gavillant".
Content, il hoche la tête.
Il aime une jolie dame très élégante.
Il aime aussi son porte-plume, ses manches
en lustrine verte et sa calotte chinoise.
Il fait de grandes enjambées ; se précipite
dans l'escalier qu'il monte sur son dos.
Quel coup de vent !
Assis dans son fauteuil il est heureux, et le fait voir.
