How can I laugh or cry
When my mind's sorely torn?
Badabec had to die
Fair Pantagruel is born
Shall I weep, yes, for why?
Then laugh and show my scorn?

Born with a strength untold
Foreseen to have great age
Set in Gargantuan mould
Joyful laugh, yet quick to rage
Princely wisdom, habits bold
Power, glory, lauded sage

Pantagruel born
The earth was dry and burning
In Paradise dear Badabec prays for him

Pantagruel born
The earth was dry and burning
In Paradise dear Badabec prays for him

Pantagruel born
The earth was dry and burning
In Paradise dear Badabec prays for him

Pantagruel born
The earth was dry and burning
In Paradise dear Badabec prays for him


Pantagruel born
The earth was dry and burning
In Paradise dear Badabec prays for him

Pantagruel born
The earth was dry and burning
In Paradise dear Badabec prays for him

How can I laugh or cry
When my mind is sorely torn?
Badabec had to die
Fair Pantagruel is born
Shall I weep, yes, for why?
Then laugh and show my scorn?
