Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Ò vin, dissipe la tristesse
Qui pèse sur mon coeur!
A moi les rèves de l'ivresse
Et le rire moqueur!
O liqueur enchanteresse,
Verse l'ivresse
Et l'oubli dans mon coeur!
Douce liqueur!
La vie est sombre
Les ans sont courts;
De nos beaux jours
Dieu sait le nombre
Chacun hélas! Porte ici-bas
Sa lourde chaîne!
Cruels devoirs,
Longs désespoirs
De l'âme humaine!
Loin de nous, noirs présages!
Ah!
