The Toad Of Montmartre

The croaking toad

The spitting toad

Is ill

Time and wind pass

Like poor cowards.


Nothing is forever

Life will remain beautiful

Put a little salt

‘Cause we must fill up the shovel

Where everything is bland.


It's snowing in my heart

It's not a great misfortune

Clouds and birds pass.


The croaking toad

The spitting toad

Has lost happiness.
