Trois chansons de la petite Sirène


Berceuse de la sirène

Danse avec nous dans le bel Océan
le matin ou le soir sous la lune d'argent.
Plonge avec nous dans le flot transparent,
chante au soleil dans l'écume et le vent.
Mer berce nous dans tes bras caressants
Mer berce nous sur ton coeur frémissant.

The siren's lullaby

Dance with us in the beautiful ocean,
Morning or evening beneath the silver moon.
Plunge with us into the clear waves,
Sing to the sun in the spume and the wind.
Sea – rock us in your caressing arms,
Sea – rock us on your quivering heart.
