Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

WAGNER
Allons, amis! point de vaines alarmes!
A ce bon vin ne melons pas de larmes!
Buvons, trinquons, et qu'un joyeux refrain
Nous mette en train!

CHŒUR
Buvons, trinquons, et qu'un joyeux refrain
Nous mette en train!

WAGNER
Un rat plus poltron que brave,
Et plus laid que beau,
Logeait au fond d'une cave,
Sous un vieux tonneau,
Un chat ...


SCÈNE III
Les mêmes, Méphistophélès

MÉPHISTOPHÉLÈS
Pardon!

WAGNER
Hein! ...

MÉPHISTOPHÉLÈS
Parmi vous, de grâce,
Permettez-moi de prendre place!
Que votre ami d'abord achève sa chanson!
Moi, je vous en promets plusieurs de ma façon.

WAGNER
Une seule suffit, pourvu quelle soit bonne!

English Libretto or Translation:

WAGNER
Come now, friends, discard these idle fears!
No tears must be mixed with this good wine!
A drink, a toast and a merry ditty
To cheer us up!

STUDENTS
A drink, a toast and a merry ditty
To cheer us up!

WAGNER
mounting on a stool
A rat, more cowardly than brave,
More repellent than handsome,
Lived deep down in a cellar,
Underneath an old barrel.
A cat...

MEPHISTOPHELES
appearing suddenly
I beg your pardon!

WAGNER
Eh?

MEPHISTOPHELES
I crave that you will allow me to take a place
In your midst.
First, your friend must finish his song!
I promise you several in my own style!

WAGNER
stepping down
One is quite enough, provided it is good!
