IF ever you've been to Fargeau,

Where from mineral springs they will pump any

Kind of water that doctors know,

With all the sparkle of Veuve Clicquot,

But the taste of the sulphurous worlds below,

Where springs and village are joined into

A kind of Wells, Fargo, and Company,

For the sake of extorting surplus cash

From the plethoric pockets of tourists rash,

Who visit the springs of Fargeau, -

If, as I've said, you've ever been

To Fargeau,

You'll very probably have seen

At Fargeau,

Rising from the meadows green

Of Fargeau,
