Back to songs list. Hear the tune

Ah!
Vous dirais-je Maman

Ah!
I will say this to you Mum

Ah vous dirai je maman,
Ce qui cause mon tourment!
Papa veut que je raison-ne,
Comme une grande personne,
Moi je dis que les bon bons,
Valent mieux que la raison.
Ah! I will say this to you mum,
This is the cause of my torment!
Dad wants that I reason,
Like a large person,
Me I say that the sweets,
Are worth more than reason.

The tune for "Ah vous dirais.." is much the same as "Twinle twinkle little star".
Mozart wrote "12 variations on Ah vous dirais Je maman" based on the tune.
