Jeanne

Language: French (Français)

Dans Londres, la grand ville
il est un être plus seul
qu'un naufragé
dans son île
et qu'un mort dans un linceul
Grand badaud petit rentier
Jeanne voilà
son métier.

Jeanne

Language: English after the French (Français)

 In the great City of London
 lives someone who is more alone
 than a shipwrecked 
 man or a 
 shrouded corpse.
 He lives on a small private income,
 Jeanne, and his trade 
 is that of spectator.
