Nuages
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Nuages, nuages, que vous êtes loin! 
Nuages, nuages, que je suis las,
Et sur vos seins, à la peau blanche 
Je voudrais tant me reposer!

Nuages, nuages, que je vous aime! 
Nuages, nuages, que vous êtes beaux! 
Pour qui donc mettez-vous ces robes 
De satin vert, de velours rose?

Nuages, nuages, comme je vous aime.
