French.png French text

La, la, la, je ne l'o… je ne l'o…
je ne l'ose dire.
La, la, la, je le vous dirai,
et la, la, la, je le vous dirai.

Il est un homme en not' ville
qui de sa femme est jaloux.
Il n'est pas jaloux sans cause,
mais il est cocu de tout.
La, la, la…
 
Il n'est pas jaloux sans cause,
mais il est cocu de tout.
Il aprete et si la mene
au marche s'en va a tout.
La, la, la…

Two more verses appear in at least one edition
(Collection Renaissance, Les Presses d'Île-de-France, 1974):


Enfin, las de ce supplice
Le pauvre homme se pendit
Mais sa femme par malice
Chez Lucifer le suivit
La, la, la…

La morale de cette histoire
C'est qu'avant de se marier
Il faut savoir le jour même
Que c'est pour l'éternité
La, la, la…

En la, la la, durve ni, durve ni,
La, la, la, durf ‘et oâst ni zegge,
La, la, la, môr ‘k zeg het toch wel.

Er is ne vent in onze stroâte,
Die’s jaloes van zijn madam.
En è houdt heur in de goâte,
Môr è wet’ er just niks van.
En la, la la…

En è houdt heur in de goâte,
Môr è wet’ er just niks van.
Als ‘em klêer is, gâ ze boâte,
Nôr de mar’t mé alleman.
En la, la la…

La, la, la, shouldn't tell,
Shouldn't tell, shouldn't tell it to you
La la la, I'll tell you anyway
Oh la, la, la, I'll tell you anyway

In our town there is a man, who
Of his wife burns with jealousy
He's not jealous without cause,
She cuckolds him incessantly
La, la, la…

He's not jealous without cause,
She cuckolds him incessantly
He takes her over to the market
When she's there she makes most free
La, la, la…

Esperanto.png Esperanto translation

La, la, la, mi ne po… mi ne po…
Mi ne povas diri
La, la, la, sed aŭskultu jen.
Ho, la, la, la, sed aŭskultu jen.

Estas vir’ en nia urbo,
li ĵaluzas pri l’ edzin’
Ne malprave li ĵaluzas,
ŝi senhonte kokras lin. Ho, la, la, la.
La, la, la…

Ne malprave li ĵaluzas,
ŝi senhonte kokras lin.
Malgraŭ lia dorlotado,
flirtas ŝi laŭ korinklin’. Ho, la, la, la.
La, la, la…
