Lyrics by Claude Nougaro
Music by Jean-Pierre Mas

I wish i was a silica grain
On a beach of Bahia
to invest the delicate interstices (*) of Marisa

Yes,I wish i was a sand grain
On a beach of Brazil
to slip into the mehanism
of Marisa closing his lashes

I wish i was a mica grain
to encrust its lap (**)
And that finally I hide there
as a delicate sodomite

Or, willing to be more wise,
being at my own risks,
under the anthropophagous sun,
the water pearl in its navel.
(*) interstice:
1. A space between things or parts,
especially a space between things closely set;
a narrow chink; a crack; a crevice; an interval.
2. An interval of time.

(**) lap: in between legs
