À la claire Fontaine

À la claire fontaine, m'en allant promener,
J'ai trouvé l'eau si belle que je m'y suis baigné.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.

Sous les feuilles d'un chêne je me suis fait sécher;
Sur la plus haute branche un rossignol chantait.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.

Chante, rossignol, chante, toi qui as le coeur gai;
Tu as le coeur à rire, moi, je l'ai à pleurer.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.

J'ai perdu mon amie sans l'avoir mérité,
Pour un bouton de rose que je lui refusai.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.

Je voudrais que la rose fût encore au rosier,
Et que ma douce amie fût encore à m'aimer.
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai.
