L'écolier assassin

D’ou reviens-tu mon fils Jacques
D’où reviens-tu cette nuit
Je viens des écoles ma mère
Des écoles de Paris
 
Refrain : J’entends la chanson sereine
Du rossignolet joli
 
Tu as menti là mon drôle
Tu reviens de voir ta mie
Je voudrais la voir morte
Et avoir son coeur ici
Refrain
 
Que donneriez-vous ma mère
Si je la faisais mourir J
e donnerais chemise blanche
De l’argent à ton plaisir
 
Refrain
 
Il est allé voir sa belle
Sitôt le soleil levé
En arrivant à sa porte
L’entendit minuit sonner
 
Refrain
 
Il la prend par sa main blanche
Au jardin l’a emmenée
Il a pris sa claire épée
Le p’tit doigt lui a coupé
 
Refrain
 
Ah mon Dieu que de souffrances
Que j’endure cette nuit
Tu en souffriras bien d’autres
avant qu’ la nuit soit finie
 
Refrain
 
Il la couche sur l’épine
Oh qui graine sans fleurir
Lui a pris le coeur du ventre
dans sa chemise il l’a mis
 
Refrain
 
Tenez ma cruelle mère
Voilà le coeur de ma mie
Tu as menti par ta bouche
C’est le coeur d’une brebis
 
Refrain
 
Oh montagnes sur montagnes
Ecrasez-vous sur mon corps
J’ai fait mourir ma maîtresse J
e n’mérite que la mort
Refrain

Student Murderer

Where are you coming back from my son Jacques
Where are you coming back from tonight
I'm coming back from schools, my mother, from schools of Paris
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
 
You lied to me my rascal
You come back from seeing your beloved
I would like to see her dead and to have her heart here
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
 
What would you give my mother if I made her die
I would give a white shirt and money to your heart's content
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
 
He went to see his beauty as soon as the sun rose
Arriving at her door he heard the midnight ringing
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
 
He takes her by her white hand and to the garden
He took out his clear sword and cut off her little finger
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
 
Oh my God, how much suffering I have to endure tonight
You will suffer much more before the night is over
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
 
He lays her on a thorny bush
Oh which gives seeds but blossoms not
He took her heart from her chest and in his shirt he put it
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
 
Here my cruel mother here is the heart of my beloved
You lied through your teeth that's the heart of a sheep
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
 
Oh mountains upon mountains crush on my body
I killed my lady and I deserve to die
 
Chorus: I hear the serene song of a beautiful nightingale
