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.

(The Dance of Le Plan-de-Contes)
Nissart lyrics by Eugène Emanuel. Traditional from County of Nice.

Gustav Adolf Mossa composed a waltz according to the lyrics of Eugène Emanuel.

1st verse
Louis, lou bèu Louis, qu’embé la sièu pouchetta
Fa tresailli lou couor de touti li filletta,
          N’en souon’au Plan,
          A jà l’arquet en man, leila ! (twice)
 Louis, the beautiful Louis, who, with his small fiddle,
Makes the heart of all little girls thrill,
          Is playing at Le Plan-de-Contes,
          He has already the bow in his hand, leila! (twice)

2nd verse
Lou Plan offr’ai dansur la sièu bella parura,
L’oumbra dei castagnié, un tapis de verdura.
          Ah ! Cour’ dansas,
          Belli, venès au Plan, leila ! (twice)
 Le Plan-de-Contes offers to the dancers its beautiful finery,
The shade of its chestnut trees, a carpet of greenery.
          Ah! When you dance,
          Belles, let come at Le Plan-de-Contes, leila ! (twice)

3rd verse
Pichouni, noun cregnès de fà la cambarota.
Aquì, sensa dangié, si galopa, si trotta
          E se toumban,
          Sus lou mouol esquihan, leila ! (twice)
 Little girls, don’t be afraid to do the caper.
Here, without danger, it is galloped, it is trotted
          And if we fall down,
          On soft falls our backbone, leila ! (twice)

4th verse
Lu cant, lu riquiquì de la banda joioua
Reveilleran lou couor de la mèn amouroua.
          E cour’ dansan
          S’approcierà plan, plan, leila ! (twice)
 The songs, the cries (1) of the merry band
Will awake the heart of the least amorous girl.
          And when we dance
          She will approach slowly, slowly, leila ! (twice)

5th verse
Auprès dei bei garçoun, en sautant sus l’erbeta,
L’amour trioumferà e veirèn li fiheta
          Dire : Dansen,
          Dansen fin à deman, leila ! (twice)
 Close to the beautiful boys, leaping on the small grass,
Love will triumph and it will be seen the small girls
          Say: let’s dance,
          Let’s dance up to tomorrow, leila ! (twice)

6th verse
Coura vendrà la nuech, que l’oumbra serà spassa,
Si dèurèn separà ; ma embé mai de tendressa
          Coura dansan
          Li belli revendran, leila ! (twice)
 When will come the night, when shade will be pitch-black,
We will have to separate; but with more tenderness
          When we dance
          The belles will come back, leila ! (twice)

7th verse
Cad’an, au mès de Mai, embé l’erba nouvella,
Emb’ai bouissoun en flou, cour’ lou plesi n’appella,
          Louis, au Plan,
          Aurà l’arquet en man, leila ! (twice)
 Each year, on May, with the new grass,
With bushes in blossom, when pleasure calls us,
          Louis, at Le Plan-de-Contes,
          Will have the bow in his hand, leila ! (twice)

1. Riquiquì: cry of joy in a falsetto voice.
