Une femme qui pleurait
  Eh ! Oh ! Ha !
Des soldats qui passaient
  Eh ! Oh ! Ha !
Un éclusier qui pêchait
  Eh ! Oh ! Ha !
Les tranchées qui blanchissaient
  Eh ! Oh ! Ha !
Des obus qui pétaient
  Eh ! Oh ! Ha !
Des allumettes qui ne prenaient pas
  Et tout
    A tant changé
      En moi
    Tout
      Sauf mon Amour
        Eh ! Oh ! Ha !
