"Plaisir d’amour" (literally "The pleasure of love") is a classical French love song written in 1784 by Jean-Paul-Égide Martini (1741–1816); it took its text from a poem by Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (1755–1794), which appears in his novel Célestine.

The pleasure of love lasts only a moment The grief of love lasts a lifetime.

I gave up everything for ungrateful Sylvia, She is leaving me for another lover.

The pleasure of love lasts only a moment, The grief of love lasts a lifetime.

"As long as this water will run gently Towards this brook which borders the meadow,

I will love you", Sylvia told me repeatedly. The water still runs, but she has changed.

The pleasure of love lasts only a moment, The grief of love lasts a lifetime.

Plaisir d’amour ne dure qu’un moment. chagrin d’amour dure toute la vie.

J’ai tout quitté pour l’ingrate Sylvie. Elle me quitte et prend un autre amant.

Plaisir d’amour ne dure qu’un moment. chagrin d’amour dure toute la vie.

Tant que cette eau coulera doucement vers ce ruisseau qui borde la prairie,

Je t’aimerai me répétait Sylvie. L’eau coule encore. Elle a changé pourtant.

Plaisir d’amour ne dure qu’un moment. chagrin d’amour dure toute la vie.
