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 Warbler)
Nissart lyrics by Joseph Passeron, music by François Mattei and Joseph Passeron. Traditional from County of Nice.

1st verse
La pichina bouscarlèta
Escounduda ’n lou bouissoun
Va e vèn su la branchèta
E rédi la siéu cansoun.
 The little warbler
Hidden in the bush
Comes and goes on the twig
And says again its song.

Ci ri ci ci cieu ! cieu ! cieu ! (three times)
Ci ri ci ci cieu ! cieu ! cieu ! cieu !
 Ci ri ci ci cieu! cieu! cieu! (three times)
Ci ri ci ci cieu! cieu! cieu! cieu!

2nd verse
« Vené mé ieu, bouscarlèta,
Ousséloun dòu beù printéms,
Ournéras la mieù chambrèta,
Mi diras lou tieù refrén.
 “Come with me, little warbler,
Small bird of the beautiful spring,
You will decorate my small bedroom,
You will say me your chorus.

3rd verse
— Aïmi troù lou gran feuïage,
La verdura, lou gazoun,
Lou sentié, lou pin sauvage,
L’aïga fresca doù valoun.
 — I like too much the great foliage,
The greenery, the grass,
The lane, the wild pine tree,
The fresh water in the small valley.

4th verse
« Canti l’aubré, la coulina,
La belessa doù jardin,
Lou bla d’or, la grana fina,
La caressa doù matin.
 “I sing the tree, the hill,
Beauty of the garden,
The golden wheat, the fine seed,
The caress of the morning.

5th verse
« Laïssi pa lou fresc oumbrage,
Au souleù vouoli cantà !
À la présoun, l’esclavagé,
Preferi la libertà ! »
 “I don’t leave the cool shade,
In the sun I want to sing!
To the jail, the slavery,
I prefer freedom.”
