Je n' ai pas peur de la route
Faudra voir, faut qu'on y goûte
Des méandres au creux des reins
Et tout ira bien (là)
Le vent nous portera
Ton message à la Grande Ourse
Et la trajectoire de la course
Un instantané de velours
Même s'il ne sert à rien (va)
Le vent l'emportera
Tout disparaîtra mais
Le vent nous portera
