Le chimpanzé

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Toi vers qui mènent tous chemins
Souris, souris et me donne la main.
Les yeux dans les yeux disons-nous poliment:
Commet allez-vous? Commet allez-vous?
Tu me souris amour en cage,
M'implores, mais qu'ai-je en échange?
Une arachide ou cet adage,
Redevient singe qui fait l'ange.
Toi vers qui mènent tous chemins
Souris, souris et me donne la main.
