Misc. Comments

Le bonheur est chose légère, Passagère, On croit l'atteindre, On le poursuit, on le poursuit, Il s'enfuit!

Hélas! vous en voulez un autre Que le notre Il faut à vos ardent désirs Des plaisirs, Dieu vous préserve des alarmes Et des larmes Qui peuvent assombrir le cours Des beaux jours.

Le bonheur...

Si jamais votre coeur regrette La retraite Qu'aujourd'hui vous abandonnez, Revenez! De tous les chagrins de votre âme Je réclame Pour notre fidèle amitié La moitié!

Le bonheur...

English

Happiness is a light thing, fleeting, you think to attain it, you pursue it; you pursue it, it flies away!

Alas! you want a happiness different from ours; your ardent desires demand pleasures. God preserve you from troubles, and tears that can darken the course of beautiful days.

Happiness...

If ever your heart regrets this shelter which today you abandon, Return! Of all the troubles of your soul I claim for the sake of our faithful friendship, half!

Happiness...
