Lyrics - French / English
(American folk song, New Orleans Creole)
Et lá-bas, et lá-bas, et lá-bas, et lá-bas,
Et lá-bas, cheri, et lá bas, cheri,
á ma ça va, á ma ça va.
1. Josephine is a lovely girl.
She comes from old Bombay
She wears fine clothes and pretty pearls
As she strolls down the Esplanade. Refrain
2. Josephine sits daintily as she sips her café noir.
The gentlemen all tip their hats and say,
Bonjour, madame, ça va. Refrain
Hey over there! Hey over there!
Hey over there, dear lady!
How’s it goin’?
