Je suis le petit chevalier
Avec le ciel dessus mes yeux
Je ne peux pas me effrayer

Je suis le petit chevalier
Avec la terre dessous mes pieds
J'irai te visiter
J'irai te visiter


[English translation]

I am the little knight
With the sky above my eyes
I cannot be frightened

I am the little knight
With the earth under my feet
I will come to visit you
I will come to visit you

    General CommentIf you listen very carefully you can hear someone (most likely Nico herself as it is a womans voice) prompting Ari. It is particularly audiable before the first 'J'irai te visiter'.

    General CommentThis song was sung by Ari, Nico's son and I think it is a wonderful song, if not a little creepy.

    General CommentI love this - then-child Ari"s voice adds innocence to the decadence.
    Pity Nico was an unrepentent racist ...
