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.

(Lullaby of the fisherman)
Nissart lyrics and music by Louis Genari. Traditional from County of Nice.

The French original lyrics by Georges Delrieu are not reproduced here. The text given corresponds to the literal translation from the version in Nissart.

Bèu pichoun qu’en t’enduermant
Ta maire bressouola.
Ah ! Saupesses lou tourment
Que tant la trebouola.
Cada fès qu’au calabrun
Lou batèu s’avara,
Mi senti au couor lou ferun
De la mar avara,
De la mar traita.
Si còu bèn gagnà lou pan.
     Nona, bressa,
Lou batèu devessa,
Lou filet es plen de pei,
Deman fèn fourtuna !
     Nona !
     Nona !
 Nice little child that, while lulling you to sleep,
Your mother rocks.
Ah! Should you know the torment
Which troubles her so much.
Each time that, at twilight
The boat launches,
I feel in my heart the smell
Of the meagre sea,
Of the perfidious sea.
     But nevertheless
It’s necessary to earn one’s daily bread.
     Bye-byes, rocks,
The boat lies down,
The fishing net is full,
Tomorrow we make our fortune!
