Le joli tambour

Lyrics - French

(French folk song)

Trois jeunes tambours s’en revenant
de guerre (bis)
Et ri et ran, ran pa ta plan.
S’en revenant de guerre.

Le plus jeune a dans sa bouche une rose (bis)
Et ri et ran, ran pa ta plan.
Dans sa bouche une rose.

Fille du roi était à sa fenêtre (bis)
Et ri et ran, ran pa ta plan.
Etait à sa fenêtre.
