Translation Singable translation by Francis Charles Philips (1849 - 1921)

Regrets
Language: French (Français) 
Rendez-les à ma tendresse
Ces beaux jours de ma jeunesse !
Courts instants de folle ivresse
Je ne vous reverai plus !

Dans ma douleur solitaire
Je pleure et me desespère 
Sur mes réves disparus !
Sur mes réves disparus !

Regrets
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
Let me cherish in my sadness
Those fair days of youth and gladness!
Moments of delightful madness
Gone, alas, for evermore!

Vain regrets for misspent powers,
Wasted chances, faded flowers,
Vex my lonely spirit sore.
Had I only known before!
