Une souris verte qui courait dans l’herbe
A green mouse which ran in the grass …
Je l’attrape par la queue
I catch her by the tail
Je la montre à ces messieurs
I show her to those gentlemen
Ces messieurs me disent
Those gentlemen tell me:
Trempez-la dans l’huile
Drench her in oil,
Trempez-la dans l’eau
Soak her in water,
Ça fera un escargot tout chaud!
That will make a really hot snail!
