Lyrics - French

(folk song from France)

1. Lundi matin,
L’emp’reur, sa femme et le p’tit prince
Sont venus chez moi
Pour me serrer la pince
Comm’ j’étais parti
Le p’tit prince a dit
Puisque c’est ainsi
Nous reviendrons mardi.

2. Mardi matin,
L’emp’reur, sa femme et le p’tit prince
Sont venus chez moi
Pour me serrer la pince
Comm’ j’étais parti
Le p’tit prince a dit
Puisque c’est ainsi
Nous reviendrons mercredi.

3. Mercredi matin…
…Nous reviendrons jeudi.

4. Jeudi matin…
…Nous reviendrons vendredi

5. Vendredi matin…
…Nous reviendrons samedi.

6. Samedi matin…
…Nous reviendrons dimanche.

7. Dimanche matin,
L’emp’reur, sa femme et le p’tit prince
Sont venus chez moi
Pour me serrer la pince
Comm’ j’étais parti
Le p’tit prince a dit
Puisqu’il n’y est plus
Nous ne reviendrons plus.
