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 Dressmaker's Apprentice Flies)
Nissart lyrics by François-Dominique Rondelly, known as Menica Rondelly. Traditional from County of Nice
Tune Lou Roussignòu que vola.

Remembrance dedicated to the newspaper l’Éclaireur de Nice et du Sud-Est, renewal of the feast of the Small Gourds in Cimiez, on the occasion of its twentieth anniversary.

1st verse
Parten toui per Cimiès, la midineta vola, (twice)
Sounen Catin, Rosà, la midineta vola, vola,
Noun oubliden Clarà, la midineta volerà.
 Let’s go to Cimiez, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, (twice)
Let’s call Katherine, Rose, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, flies,
Don’t let’s forget Claire, the dressmaker’s apprentice will fly.

2nd verse
Si faguen doui frisoun, la midineta vola, (twice)
E lu chivus coupà, la midineta vola, vola,
La règa de coustà, la midineta volerà.
 We make us two little curls (1), the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, (twice)
And cut our hair, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, flies,
Our hair parted to the side, the dressmaker’s apprentice will fly.

3rd verse
Capèu a campanoun, la midineta vola, (twice)
Gris, rouge o ben granat, la midineta vola, vola,
La ràuba de gàla, la midineta volerà.
 Hat with bellflowers, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, (twice)
Grey, red or garnet-coloured, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, flies,
The full evening dress, the dressmaker’s apprentice will fly.

4th verse
Doui mignoun cougourdoun, la midineta vola, (twice)
Caduna croumperà, la midineta vola, vola,
Au couòr lu placerà, la midineta volerà.
 Two cute small gourds, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, (twice)
Each girl will buy, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, flies,
On her heart she will place them, the dressmaker’s apprentice will fly.

5th verse
E pi s’encalaran, la midineta vola, (twice)
Au vièi oste de Chouà, la midineta vola, vola,
Per s’ana merendà, la midineta volerà.
 And then they will go down, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, (twice)
To the old Francis’ house, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, flies,
To go and have an “afterschool snack”, the dressmaker’s apprentice will fly.

6th verse
Ma coura sounera, la midineta vola, (twice)
L’oura de travaià, la midineta vola, vola,
Cimiès saludera, la midineta volerà.
 But when will ring, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, (twice)
The working time, the dressmaker’s apprentice flies, flies,
Cimiez she will say goodbye, the dressmaker’s apprentice will fly.

1. Little ringlet, curling around face or neck.
