Pourquoi, doux rossignol,

dans ce sombre séjour

M'éveillez-vous avant l'Aurore?

 

Venez-vous à mon coeur annoncer le retour

Du charmant objet que j'adore ?

 

Pourquoi, doux rossignol,

dans ce sombre séjour

M'éveillez-vous avant l'Aurore?

 

Mais si Climaine, a mon amour trop insensible encore,

Abandonne mon coeur au feu qui le dévore ;

 

Pourquoi, doux rossignol,

dans ce sombre séjour

M'éveillez-vous avant l'Aurore?

Why, sweet nightingale

in this dark abode

do you wake me before dawn?

 

Have you come to announce the return

Of the one that I love?

 

Why, sweet nightingale

in this dark abode

do you wake me before dawn?

 

But, if Climaine is still insensitive to my love

Then abandon my heart to the fire which devours it

 

Why, sweet nightingale

in this dark abode

do you wake me before dawn?
