"Colombine" as written by and Paul/brassens Verlaine....
Léandre le sot
Pierrot qui d'un saut
De puce
Franchit le buisson
Cassandre sous son
Capuce

Arlequin aussi
Cet aigrefin si
Fantasque
Aux costumes fous
Les yeux luisant sous
Son masque

Do, mi, sol, mi, fa
Tout ce monde va
Rit, chante
Et danse devant
Une frêle enfant
Méchante

Dont les yeux pervers
Comme les yeux verts
Des chattes
Gardent ses appas
Et disent
"À bas Les pattes!"

L'implacable enfant
Preste et relevant
Ses jupes
La rose au chapeau
Conduit son troupeau
De dupes!
