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 Cicada)
Nissart lyrics and music by Louis Genari. Traditional from County of Nice.

1st verse
En la rama ’scounduda
O sus la rusca ’n lu aut òulivié,
Cigala tant menuda,
Siès lou souspir dei camp e dei granié,
Quoura, sus l’estenduda,
N’en fas audì la cansoun
De la missoun !
Quoura, sus l’estenduda,
N’en fas audì la cansoun
De la missoun !
Au missounaire, gènta amiga,
Cante-li bèn : « E sega e liga,
Sega, liga, sega, liga, sega, liga, sega, liga ! »
Ensèn vous plas de vé flourì l’espiga
E madurà lou gran
Ai rai jouious dòu bèu soulèu souvran !
 In the foliage hidden
Or on the bark in the high olive trees,
Cicada so slim,
You are the sigh of the fields and the corn lofts,
When, on the expanse,
You make us hear the song
Of the harvest!
When, on the expanse,
You make us hear the song
Of the harvest!
To the harvester, kind friend,
Well sing him: “And let reap and let tie up,
Reap, tie up, reap, tie up, reap, tie up, reap, tie up!”
Together, you are pleased to see the ear blossoming
And ripening the wheat
In the joyful rays of the beautiful and sovereign sun!

2nd verse
Lou soulèu mounta e baissa
Ma, au lonc dòu jour, noun quitton lou travai.
En la plana, en li faissa,
Larc e bèn fin, luse e taia lou dai
E cadun, darrié, laissa
En rega de gros massoun
De la missoun.
E cadun, darrié, laissa
En rega de gros massoun
De la missoun.
Au missounaire, gènta amiga,
Cante-li bèn : « E sega e liga,
Sega, liga, sega, liga, sega, liga, sega, liga ! »
Ensèn vous plas de vé toumbà l’espiga
E ’ngarbeirà lou gran
Ai rai jouious dòu bèu soulèu souvran !
 The sun rises and sets
But, along the day, they don’t leave work.
In the plain, on the terraces,
Broad and sharp, gleams and cuts the scythe
And everybody, behind, leaves
In rows big bunches
Of the harvest.
And everybody, behind, leaves
In rows big bunches
Of the harvest.
To the harvester, kind friend,
Well sing him: “And let reap and let tie up,
Reap, tie up, reap, tie up, reap, tie up, reap, tie up!”
Together, you are pleased to see the ear falling
And sheaving the wheat
In the joyful rays of the beautiful and sovereign sun!
