3. Hôtel [sung text not yet checked]

Ma chambre a la forme d'une cage,
Le soleil passe son bras par la fenêtre.
Mais moi qui veux fumer pour faire des mirages
J'allume au feu du jour ma cigarette.
Je ne veux pas travailler - je veux fumer.

5. Sentiment de solitude [sung text not yet checked]

Sentiment de solitude, dès mon enfance. 
Malgré la famille, et au milieu des camarades, surtout, - 
sentiment de destinée éternellement solitaire.
Cependant, goût très vif de la vie et du plaisir.
