Pauvre monde, insupportable monde
C'en est trop, tu es tomb trop bas
Tu es trop gris, tu es trop laid
Abominable monde, coute-moi
Un chevalier te dfie.
Roui c'est moi, Don Quichotte
Seigneur de la Mancha
Pour toujours au servic' de l'honneur
Car j'ai l'honneur d'tre moi
Don Quichotte sans peur
Et le vent de l'histoir' chante en moi
D'ailleurs qu'importe l'histoire
Pourvu qu'elle mne la gloire.
Et moi je suis Sancho
Sancho, Sancho
Son valet, son fils. Son frre
Sancho, son seul amigo
Son seul suivant mais pour toujours
Et j'en suis fier.
Vous les dragons, les sorciers, les sorcires
Votre rgne se meurt aujourd'hui
La vertu flambe dans ma bannire
Un chevalier vous dfie
