Sur le pont d'Avignon. on the Avignon bridge.
Sur le pont d'Avignon,
L'on y danse,
l'on y danse,
Sur le pont d'Avignon,
L'on y danse tout en rond.

Les beaux messieurs font
comme ça,
Et puis encore comme ça.

Sur le pont d'Avignon,
L'on y danse tout en rond.
On the Avignon bridge,
They dance there,
they dance there,
On the Avignon bridge,
There they dance in a circle,

The handsome men go
like that,
and then again like that,

On the Avignon bridge, everyone is dancing, in a circle.
There are any number of verses you could make your own up. here are a few to be going on with.
Les belle dames font comme ça,

Les poupees font comme ça,

Les officiers,(ou les soldats,)

Les grenouilles font comme ça,

Les gorilles font comme ça,

Les bébés font comme ça,

Les bons amis font comme ça,

Les musiciens font comme ça,

The beautiful women go like that,
curtsey.
The dolls go like that,
walk stiffly like dolls
The officers (or the soldiers)
March and salute
The frogs,
hop,
The gorillas,
Beat the chest
The babies,
Suck thumbs perhaps
The good freinds,
hug or shake hands,
The musicians,
mime playing a musical instrument
