A Green Mouse Song

A Green Mouse – Une Souris Verte

Classic French nursery rhyme for children about a green mouse being caught by its tail –  Easy, repetitive version of the song recorded for pre-school + primary children learning French.

Friendly French listening practice with English translations.
What a strange little nursery rhyme, as many of them can be, in any language.


The Words:

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!
