Le manoir de Rosamonde
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG ENG SPA
De sa dent soudaine et vorace,
Comme un chien l'amour m'a mordu...
En suivant mon sang répandu,
Va, tu pourras suivre ma trace...

Prends un cheval de bonne race,
Pars, et suis mon chemin ardu,
Fondrière ou sentier perdu,
Si la course ne te harasse !

En passant par où j'ai passé,
Tu verras que seul et blessé
J'ai parcouru ce triste monde.

Et qu'ainsi je m'en fus mourir
Bien loin, bien loin, sans découvrir
Le bleu manoir de Rosamonde.

La casa solariega de Rosamonde
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the French (Français) 
Con su súbito y voraz diente,
como un perro el amor me mordió...
Siguiendo mi sangre esparcida,
ve, que podrás seguir mi rastro...
 
Toma un caballo de buena raza,
ve, y sigue mi arduo camino,
por pantano o sendero perdido,
¡si la carrera no te cansa antes!
 
Pasando por donde pasé,
verás que solo y herido
recorrí este triste mundo.
 
Y así me fui a morir
bien, bien lejos, sin descubrir
la casa solariega de Rosamonde.
