Si tu dors, jeune fille,
Debout, debout! voici le soleil!
Chasse de tes yeux l'indolent sommeil!
C'est l'heure du réveil!



Suis moi, vive et gentille!
Pieds nus, viens! Les gazons sont verts!
Les ruisseaux jaseurs par les bois déserts
Promènent leurs flots clairs!

Kom! De gazonnen zijn groen!
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the French (Français) 
Als je slaapt, meisje,
sta op, zie de zon!
Jaag de slaperigheid uit je ogen!
Het is het uur van opstaan!

Volg mij, levendig en lief!
Naakte voeten, kom! De gazonnen zijn groen!
De klaterende beken door de verlaten bossen
volgen hun heldere stromen!
