I am gone, sir

Language: English

I am gone, sir,
And anon, sir,
I'll be with you again,
in a trice,
Like to the old vice,
Your need to sustain.

Who with dagger of lath
In his rage and his wrath,
Cries, aha, to the devil, aha, ha, ha!
Like a mad lad,
Pare thy nails, dad.
Adieu, good man devil.


Translation(s): FIN FRE

Je pars, monsieur

Language: French (Français) after the English

Je pars, monsieur,
Et tout à l'heure, monsieur,
Je reviens à vous,
En un clin d'œil
Comme l'antique bouffon,
Pour pourvoir à vos besoins.

Qui, avec un sabre de bois,
Dans sa rage et dans sa furie,
Criait au diable : Ah ! Ah !
Comme un fol enfant,
Rogne tes ongles, papa,
Adieu, bon cacochyme !
