Plaisir d'amour

Language: French

Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un moment:
Chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.

J'ai tout quitté pour l'ingrate Sylvie;
Elle me quitte et prend un autre amant.

Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un moment:
Chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.

"Tant que cette eau coulera doucement
Vers ce ruisseau qui borde la prairie,
Je t'aimerai," me répétait Sylvie,
L'eau coule encor, elle a changé pourtant.

Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un moment:
Chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.
