Lyrics - French

(Canadian folk song)

Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette, je te plumerai
Je te plumerai la tête (echo)
Et la tête (echo)
Alouette (echo)
O-o-o-oh

…..Je te plumerai le bec (echo)
Et le bec (echo)
Et la tête (echo)
Alouette (echo)

O-o-o-oh

Et le cou
Et le dos
Et les ailes
Et les pattes
Et la queue

Lark, gentle lark
Lark, I shall pluck you
I shall pluck your head (echo)
And your head (echo)
Lark (echo)
O-o-o-oh

…I shall pluck your beak (echo)
And your beak,
And your head,
Lark,
O-o-o-oh
 
And your neck
And your back
And your wings
And your feet
And your tail
