La bergeronnette

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Bergeronnette, ma mignonne,
Voici l'aurore qui rayonne;
Éveille-toi dans les buissons!
Mêle ta voix à nos chansons.

Ainsi que toi sous la charmille,
Vole et s'enfuit la jeune fille
Dont la voix babille,
babille un chant d'amour joyeux et doux!
Ah! Chante, chante! Vole, vole près de nous!

De notre amour cherchons l'augure
Dans le cristal d'une onde pure
Dont le flot murmure,
murmure un doux secret que Dieu bénit!
Ah! Chante, chante! Vole, vole, fais ton nid!

Les parfums et les sons
S'envolent des buissons,
Dans l'ombre nous passons,
Mêle ta voix à nos chansons.
Ah! chante! Ah! vole Bergeronnette devant moi
