La colombe
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Gladys! Gladys!
Laisse la colombe se poser sur ton épaule ...
mais sache que c'est une colombe païenne.
La petite Vénus de Botticelli te l'envoya 
pour te séduire plus surement.
Gladys! Gladys!
Petite Star de la Mer qui te joues dans ses flots 
en entendant l'heure de séduire.
Prends garde à la colombe.
Gladys! Gladys!
