Je Chante

vers/verse, pub:1853

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     Three regular five-line stanzas, rhyming a, b, a, b, a.
     This pretty little song, trilled more than once in the course of "La Jeunesse de Louis XV.," by the gipsy child, was destined never to be heard in that connection, the censor interfering so that the play was neither performed nor printed. Dumas wrote the song purposely for Émilie Dubois, who was to sing it in the role of Topaze.
     Later it was set to music by Wekerlin, and published : Paris, E. Costil.
