French lyrics
Montagnes valdôtaines
Vous êtes mes amours,
Hameaux, clochers, fontaines,
Vous me plairez toujours.
Rien n'est si beau que ma patrie,
Rien n'est si doux que mon amie.
Ô montagnards
Chantez en chœur de mon pays
La paix et le bonheur.
Haltelà, haltelà, haltelà
Les montagnards sont là.
English translation
Mountains of Aosta valley
ye are my beloved,
hamlets, bell towers, fountains,
I will always love you.
Nothing is more beautiful than my homeland,
nothing is sweeter than my friends.
O mountain men
sing all together
the peace and the fortune of my country.
Halt, halt, halt there
The mountain men are there.
