Le tchibouk

Language: French (Français)

Apportez mon tchibouck,
Jouez du tarabouk!
Que Fatma la danseuse
Péri voluptueuse,
Ouvre le paradis,
A mes yeux éblouis!

Du tchibouk échappés
Flocons, nuages embaumés,
Quel sylphe aux blanches ailes
Sur vos spirales frêles
Montre le paradis,
À mes yeux éblouis?

Ce n'est pas du café
L'arôme ardent et parfumé,
Ni Fatma la danseuse,
Ni ma brune amoureuse
Qui crée un paradis
A mes yeux éblouis.

À travers le flot pur
De ses molles vapeurs d'azur,
O tchibouk, ta fumée,
Charmante et douce fée,
Seule a du paradis
Entrouvert les lambris.
