Il était une bergère There was a shepherdess.
Il etait une beregere,
et ron ron ron petit patapon,
Il etait une bergere,
qui gardait ses moutons ron ron,
qui gardait ses moutons,

Elle fit un fromage,
et ron ron ron petit patapon,
elle fit un fromage,
du lait de ses moutons ron ron,
du lait de ses moutons,

Le chat qui la regarde,
et ron ron ron petit patapon,
le chat qui la regarde,
a un p'tit air fripon ron ron,
a un p'tit air fripon,

si tu y met la patte,
et ron ron ron petit patapon,
si tu y met la patte,
tu auras du baton, ron ron
tu auras du baton,

Il n'y mit pas la patte,
et ron ron ron petit patapon,
il n'y mit pas la patte,
il y mit le menton, ron ron,
il y mit le menton,

La bergere en colere,
et ron ron ron petit patapon,
la bergere en colere,
battit son p'tit chaton, ron ron,
battit son p'tit chaton.
There was a little shepherdess,
And ron, ron, ron, little patapon
there was a little shepherdess,
who looked after her sheep.
who looked after her sheep.

She made cheese,
And ron, ron, ron, little patapon
She made cheese,
from the sheep's milk
from the sheep's milk

The cat watched her,
And ron, ron, ron, little patapon,
The cat watched her,
with a rougish air,
with a rougish air,

If you put the paw there,
And ron, ron, ron, little patapon,
If you put the paw there,
you will have the stick,
you will have the stick,

he did not put the paw there,
And ron, ron, ron, little patapon,
he did not put the paw there,
he put his chin there,
he put his chin there,

The shepherdess, very angry
And ron, ron, ron, little patapon,
The shepherdess, very angry
beats her little kitten.
beats her little kitten.
Notes. I hope you worked out that "ron ron ron" and "patapon" don't actually mean anything, it's kinda like "folderoll" or "hey nonny nonny" geddit? good!
