À la claire fontaine
M’en allant promener
J’ai trouvé l’eau si belle
Que je m’y suis baigné

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime
Jamais je ne t’oublierai

Sous les feuilles d’un chêne
Je me suis fait sécher
Sur la plus haute branche
Un rossignol chantait

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime
Jamais je ne t’oublierai

Chante rossignol, chante
Toi qui a le coeur gai
Tu as le coeur à rire
Moi je l’ai à pleurer

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime
Jamais je ne t’oublierai

J’ai perdu mon amie
Sans l’avoir mérité
Pour un bouquet de roses
Que je lui refusai

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime
Jamais je ne t’oublierai

Je voudrais que la rose
Fût encore au rosier
Et que ma douce amie
Fût encore à m’aimer

Il y a longtemps que je t’aime
Jamais je ne t’oublierai

At the clear fountain
While going for a walk
I found the water so beautiful
I bathed in it

For a long time, I have loved you
Never will I forget you

Under the leaves of an oak tree
I dried myself
On the highest branch
A nightingale was singing

For a long time, I have loved you
Never will I forget you

Sing, nightingale, sing
You, who has a merry heart
You feel like laughing
Me, I feel like crying

For a long time, I have loved you
Never will I forget you

I lost my friend
Without deserving it
Over a bouquet of roses
That I refused

For a long time, I have loved you
Never will I forget you

I wish that the rose
Were still on the rosebush
And that my sweetheart
Still loved me

For a long time, I have loved you
Never will I forget you
