Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MÉPHISTOPHÉLÈS
Je ferai de mon mieux -
Pour n'ennuyer personne!

MÉPHISTOPHÉLÈS
Le veau d'or est toujours debout!
On encense
Sa puissance,
D'un bout du monde à l'autre bout!
Pour fêter l'infâme idole
Roi et peuples confondus,
Au bruit sombre des écus,
Dansent une ronde folle
Autour de son piédestal!…
Et Satan conduit le bal!

CHŒUR
Et Satan conduit le bal!

MÉPHISTOPHÉLÈS
Le veau d'or est vainquer des dieux!
Dans sa gloire
Dérisoire
Le monstre abjecte insulte aux cieux
Il contemple, ô rage étrange!
A ses pieds le genre humain
Se ruant, le fer en main,
Dans le sang et dans la fange
Où brille l'ardent métal!
Et Satan conduit le bal!

CHŒUR
Et Satan conduit le bal!

CHŒUR
Merci de ta chanson.

English Libretto or Translation:

MEPHISTOPHELES
I shall try my hardest not to bore anyone!
The golden calf is still standing,
His might
Is celebrated
From one end of the world to the other!
Nations and kings mix together
To hail the infamous idol
And to the sinister clink of coins
They whirl in a frenzied ring
Round and round his pedestal!
And Satan leads the dance!

ALL
And Satan leads the dance!

MEPHISTOPHELES
The golden calf triumphs over the gods;
Basking in
His preposterous glory
The base monster insults Heaven!
He looks down, ? O strange madness! ?
On the human race at his feet
Sallying forth, sword in hand,
Through blood and filth,
Where the burning metal is shining!
And Satan leads the dance!

ALL
And Satan leads the dance!
We thank you for your song!
