Come unto these yellow sands

Language: English

Come unto these yellow sands,
[Then]1 take hands:
Curtsied when you have and kissed,
The wild waves [whist]2:
Foot it featly here and there;
And, sweet sprites, the [burthen]3 bear.

Hark, hark!
Bow-wow.
The watch dogs bark;
Bow-wow.
Hark, hark!
I hear the strain of strutting Chanticleer
Cry, Cock-a-diddle dow.

Venez sur ces sables jaunes

Language: French (Français) after the English

Venez sur ces sables jaunes,
Et puis prenez-vous les mains.
Quand vous vous serez salués et baisés
Dans le silence des vagues sauvages,
Gambadez lestement çà et là ;
Et, doux esprits, entonnez le refrain.

Chut ! chut !
Ouh ! ouh !
C'est l'aboiement des chiens de garde.
Ouh ! ouh !
Chut ! chut ! 
j'entends la voix du coq qui se rengorge
En criant : Cocorico !
