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.

1st verse               
Belli gen de touta rassa,
Venès toui, courrès en massa,
Retenès li vouastri plassa,
Carneval es per camin,
     Aih ! Aih ! Aih !
          Raù !
 Beautiful people from all kinds,
Let all come, rush up en masse,
Let reserve your seats,
Carnival is on the way,
     Ow! Ow! Ow!

Flà ! Lou faghen sautà, es Carnevale !
Si mascaren, pinten, faghen lu fouale.
Flà ! Lou faghen sautà, es Carneval !
     Aih ! Aih ! Aih !
Si mascaren, pinten, sighen toui gai.
     Aih ! Aih ! Aih !
 Fla! We make him jump, it’s carnival!
We dress up, we use make-up, let’s do messing.
Fla! We make him jump, it’s Carnival!
     Ow! Ow! Ow!
We dress up, we use make-up, let’s be happy.
     Ow! Ow! Ow!

2nd verse               
Gingingin ! Lou siècle toumba ;
Patapoun ! Toute reboumba,
Lu canoun embé li boumba
Fan lou gran ciarivarin.
     Aih ! Aih ! Aih !
          Raù !
 Gingingin ! The century falls;
Crash! Everything rings out,
The guns and the bombs (1)
Do the great hullabaloo.
     Ow! Ow! Ow!

3rd verse               
Toute va, pi ven, pi vola,
Lou cancan, li cambriola ;
Et lu nas plen de badola
Fan tramblà lu bei mourin.
     Aih ! Aih ! Aih !
          Raù !
 Everything goes, then comes, then flies,
The gossiping, the capers;
And the noses full of bumps
Make the pretty little faces shake.
     Ow! Ow! Ow!

4th verse               
Lou gran beù souleu de Nissa
Soubre touti li taulissa
D’un sourire d’or tapissa
Lou décor lou pu divin.
     Aih ! Aih ! Aih !
          Raù !
 The great and beautiful sun of Nice
On all the roofs
With a golden smile covers
The most divine scenery.
     Ow! Ow! Ow!

1. In 1911, the forerunners of the First World War were already numerous.
