"Le Collier" by Olivier Messiaen.

Lyrics: ...

Printemps enchainé, arc-en-ciel léger du matin,
Ah! mon collier! Ah! mon collier!
Petit soutien vivant de mes oreilles lasses,
Collier de renouveau, de sourire et de grace,
Collier d'Orient, collier choisi multicolore aux perles dures et cocasses!

Paysage courbe, épousant l'air frais du matin,
Ah! mon collier! Ah! mon collier!
Tes deux bras autour de mon cou, ce matin."

A springtime enchained, a weightless morning rainbow,
Ah! my necklace! Ah! my necklace!
A small and living support for my tired ears,
A necklace of rewal, of smiles and of grace,
A necklace of the Orient, a choice multi-colored necklace with hard and comical pearls!

A curving landscape, marrying the cool morning air,
Ah! my necklace! Ah! my necklace!
Your two arms around my neck this morning.
