Il pleure dans mon cœur
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG ENG GER GER SPA
Il pleure dans mon cœur
Comme il pleut sur la ville ;
Quelle est cette langueur
Qui pénètre mon cœur ?

Ô bruit doux de la pluie,
Par terre et sur les toits!
Pour un cœur qui s'ennuie,
Ô le [chant]1 de la pluie !

Il pleure sans raison
Dans [ce]2 cœur qui s'écœure.
Quoi! nulle trahison ? ...
[Ce]3 deuil est sans raison.

C'est bien la pire peine,
De ne savoir pourquoi
Sans amour et sans haine
Mon cœur a tant de peine!

V slezax moya dusha
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the French (Français) 
V slezax moya dusha, --
pod prolivnem` selen`e.
Uny'niem dy'sha, 
o chyom grustit dusha?

Potoki dozhdevy'ya,
po krovlyam, po zemle!
V minuty' skuki zly'ya
o, pesni dozhdevy'ya!

O, slyozy' bez prichin
v dushe, chto provozhaet
izmeny' bez kruchin!
Moj traur bez prichin.

Vot gorshee stradan`e:
ne znaesh` otchego,
chuzhda ocharovan`ya,
dusha polna stradan`ya!
