D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

À San-Jouan
(At Saint-Jean)
Nissart lyrics by Joseph Giordan. Traditional from County of Nice.
Tune Lou Festin dei verna.

This traditionnal song describes the program of a fishing party, on the coast of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat


1st verse
Dai Fossa fin à Baratié,
Poudès pescar girella,
Tourdou, saran, pagèu, blavié,
Sarpa, buga ravella.
 From the Fosses up to Baratié,
You can fish for rainbow wrasse,
For labrid, for sea perch, for porgy, for labroid,
For [?], for porgy “bur-ravelle”.

2nd verse
Sourtès lu viéure dau panié
Per faire la merènda;
Aurès li roca per taulié
E de gros pin per tènda.
 You take out the food from basket.
For a snack;
You will have boulders as table
And large pines as tent.

3rd verse
Per vous dinar, mile bèi luèc
Vous pouorge Sant-Espici;
Lou bouiabaissa sus lou fuèc
Embauma. Que delici!
 For dinner, a thousand beautiful places
Offer you St. Spices;
The fish soup on fire
Embalms. What a delight!
