Spleen

Language: French (Français)

Dans un vieux square où l'océan
Du mauvais temps met son séant
Sur un banc triste aux yeux de pluie
C'est d'une blonde
Rosse et gironde
Que je m'ennuie
Dans ce cabaret du Néant
Qu'est notre vie.

Depression

Language: English after the French (Français)

 While in the gardens the sea of rotten
 weather weighs down with his bottom
 an old park-bench with eyes of rain ...
 there is a blonde, 
 all bosom and strife,
 who's making you jaded
 in this whole hollow cabaret
 which is our life.
