Refrain:}
Et l'on m'appelle l'oriental
Le brun au regard fatal
Et l'on m'appelle l'oriental
Car moi je suis sentimental
Et pourtant je ne fais pas de mal
On m'a surnomm l'oriental
On critique ma vie
Mais on aime ma compagnie
A tout instant mon cur s'attache
Mon cur joue cache-cache
Mme quand je n'ai pas un dollar
Je chante et j'oublie mon cafard
On m'a surnomm l'oriental
Car moi je suis sentimental
{au Refrain}
Chansons tristes ou chansons gaies
Moi je chante ce qu'il me plat
C'est la musique qui m'affole
Musique orientale ou espagnole
La chanson c'est comme l'amour
A fait rver la nuit le jour
On m'a surnomm l'oriental
Tellement je suis sentimental
{au Refrain
