Pauvre Jeanette

Language: French (Fran├žais)

   Pauvre Jeanette,
Qui chantoit si bien,
Triste et seulette,
Tu ne dis plus rien.
   Las ! je soupire
Loin de mon ami :
   Ne sais rien dire
À d'autres que lui.

   Jeune fillette,
Ne peux-tu changer ?
   Lalirette :
   Crois-moi, Jeanette,
   Choisis un berger.
   Le roi lui-même
Auroit un refus ;
   Du jour qu'on aime
On ne choisit plus.
