Plantez un romarin
Et dansez sur la tombe
Car la morte est bien morte
C'est tard et la nuit tombe
 Dors bien, dors bien..
C'est tard et la nuit tombe.
Dansons dansons en rond.
La morte a clos ses yeux,
Que les dévôts prient Dieu
 Dors bien, dors bien..
Que les dévôts prient Dieu
Cherchons-leur des prie-Dieu
La mort a fait sa ronde
Pour nous plus tard demain
 Dors bien, dors bien..
Pour nous plus tard demain
Plantons un romarin
Et dansons sur la tombe
La mort n'en dira rien
 Dors bien, dors bien..
