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.

(Song from Nice)
Nissart lyrics by Jules Bessi. Traditional from County of Nice.
Tune Lou Festin dei verna (The Feast of the alders).

This song was composed for the occasion of Carnival 1887.

Cad’an per aquesta sesoun
Maire, enfant, paire e filha
Canten Carneval... en cansoun
De familha en familha.
 Each year on this season
Mothers, sons, fathers and daughters
Are singing Carnival... in songs
From families to families.

O Nissa aimada,
Faguen mascarada,
Faguen de bal, de bacanal,
Ounour e gloria à Carneval. (twice)
Carneval ren noun regne !
Voulèn que cad’an regne !
 Oh! Nice beloved,
Let’s do masquerades,
Let’s do open-air dances, bacchanalias (1),
Honour and glory to Carnival. (twice)
Carnival, nothing reigns!
We want every year he reigns!

1. Bacchanalia, in honour of Bacchus/Dionysus.

• revue Lou Sourgentin, Nice, n° 80, 1988, p. 34.
