Jacob, Max: Chanson bretonne

Portre of Jacob, Max

Chanson bretonne (French)

J'ai perdu ma poulette
Et j'ai perdu mon chat.
Je cours à la poudrette
Si Dieu me les rendra.

Je vais chez Jean le Coz
Et chez Marie Maria.
Va-t'en voir chez Hérode
Peut-être il le saura.

Passant devant la salle
Toute la ville était là
À voir danser ma poule
Avec mon petit chat.

Tous les oiseaux champêtres
Sur les murs et sur les toits
Jouaient de la trompette
Pour le banquet du roi.

Breton song (English)

I've lost my little hen,
and I've lost my cat.
I'll run to the trash heap
if God gives them back to me.

I will go see Jean le Coz
and Marie Maria.
You go see Herod.
Maybe he will know.

When I went by the room,
the whole town was there
to see my hen dancing
with my little cat.

All the birds of the fields
were playing the trumpet on the walls
and the rooftops
for the king's banquet.
