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.

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

1st verse
Perqué ’sfueià tanti margarideta ?
Doun es aquèu que t’aima o t’aimerà ?
Souleta ’n tant ti laisson li floureta :
Degun, degun que ti respouonderà. (twice)
 Why pick off the petals of so much daisies?
Where is the one who loves you or will love you?
Alone for the meantime leave you the small flowers:
Nobody, nobody that will answer you. (twice)

2nd verse
Perqué cantà en la cauma dòu sera ?
Pèr lu amant l’estela luserà !
Souleta siès e degun noun t’aspera :
Degun, degun qu’en passant t’auderà. (twice)
 Why sing on the pasture (1), in the evening?
For the lovers, the star will shine!
Alone you are and nobody waits for you:
Nobody, nobody that, passing, will hear you. (twice)

3rd verse
Perqué voulé au fenestroun ti faire,
Cresènt qu’enfin quaucun si fermerà ?
Souleta siès e degun calignaire,
Degun, degun que damoun ti veirà. (twice)
 Why sit by the little window,
Believing that at last anybody will stop?
Alone you are and no lover,
Nobody, nobody that will see you up there. (twice)

4th verse
Perqué cercà dintre aquéu mounde alègre ?
Meme au tiéu gauch qu si revirerà ?
Souleta siès e degun à ti sègre,
Degun, degun qu’ensen mé tu rirà. (twice)
 Why search in this cheerful world?
Even on your happiness, who will turn over?
Alone you are and nobody following you,
Nobody, nobody that, with you, will laugh. (twice)

5th verse
Jour desperat e longa nuèch mourtala,
Vouostre retour mai noun fenisserà ?
Souleta sièu e la miéu vida es tala :
Estre souleta e souleta plourà. (twice)
 Desperate day and long and fatal night,
Your return never will finish?
Alone I am and mi life is so:
To be alone and alone weep. (twice)

1. Cauma: “rocky plateau, high and meagre pasture” (Georges Castellana, Dictionnaire niçois-français).
