Bientôt l'île bleue et joyeuse
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Bientôt l'île bleue et joyeuse
Parmi les rocs m'apparaîtra ;
L'île sur l'eau silencieuse
Comme un nénuphar flottera.

A travers la mer d'améthyste
Doucement glisse le bateau,
Et je serai joyeux et triste
De tant me souvenir -- bientôt.

Soon the blue and joyful isle
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
Soon the blue and joyful isle
Will appear to me among the rocks;
The isle upon the silent water
Floats like a water lily.

Across the amethyst sea
The boat gently glides,
And I will be joyful and sad
At how much I remember - Soon!
