Le prince de Marano s'est envolé.
A bord de son vaisseau il s'est en allé
A travers la galaxie
Pour retrouver dans la nuit
Son ami, le chevalier bleu
Que le roi Gand a fait prisonnier.
Le prince et son armée sont partis le délivrer.
La nuit est tombée sur la planète Lerre.
La belle princesse dans son palais de verre, oh
Rêve qu'elle vole dans l'interplanetaire,
Et qu'elle accompagne son prince charmant.
Quand il reviendra,
Toute son peuple l'acclamera.
Plus jamais, oh non jamais il ne partira
Sans l'emmener, car
La belle princesse et le prince vont se marier.
English translation
The prince of Marano has flown away.
He went away aboard his ship
Across the galaxy,
To find in the night
His friend, the blue knight,
Whom the king of Gand has imprisoned.
The prince and his army have left to save him.
Night has fallen on the planet Lerre.
The beautiful princess in her palace of glass
Dreams that she's flying among the planets,
And that's she's with her charming prince.
When he returns,
All his people shall praise him.
Never again, no, never shall he leave
Without bringing her, for
The beautiful princess and the prince are going to be wed.
