Une nuit que j'étais
À me morfondre
Dans quelque pub anglais
Du cœur de Londres
Parcourant l'Amour Monstre de Pauwels
Me vint une vision
Dans l'eau de Seltz

The initials, the initials, the initials B.B
The initials, the initials, the initials B.B

Tandis que des médailles
D'impérator
Font briller à sa taille
Le bronze et l'or
Le platine lui grave
D'un cercle froid
La marque des esclaves
À chaque doigt

The initials, the initials, the initials B.B
The initials, the initials, the initials B.B

Jusques en haut des cuisses
Elle est bottée
Et c'est comme un calice
À sa beauté
Elle ne porte rien
D'autre qu'un peu
D'essence de Guerlain
Dans les cheveux

The initials, the initials, the initials B.B
The initials, the initials, the initials B.B

À chaque mouvement
On entendait
Les clochettes d'argent
De ses poignets
Agitant ses grelots
Elle avança
Et prononça ce mot
"Alméria"

The initials, the initials, the initials B.B
The initials, the initials, the initials B.B

The initials, the initials, the initials B.B
The initials, the initials, the initials B.B
