Excerpt

A Saint-Aubin, à Ons-en-Bray,
A Espaubourg aussi, partout voici matines:
Quel amoureux regret,
Chère hypocrite, te retient donc sous la courtine?

MADEMOISELLE ROSE

Une petite prise, mademoiselle Rose,
Une petite prise de vieux tabac fin:
A notre âge, eh! eh! c'est chose
Plus chère qu'un sachet de parfum.

Ça pique et c'est délicieux
Mademoiselle Rose, vous savez bien;
Ça pique et ça met une larme aux yeux,
Pour rien en somme, pour rien ...

Autrefois c'était une fraîche rose
Que je vous offrais, et cela aussi,
Cela aussi, mademoiselle Rose,
Mettait une larme claire entre vos cils.

Mais maintenant vous avez bonnet et jupe
A la mode ancienne:
Hélas! nous sommes restés tous deux dupes
De nos mutuelles antiennes.

Et maintenant quand on cause,
Et maintenant que voulez-vous qu'on dise?
Une petite prise,
