  • The Little Bird Lyrics:

Belle jeune fille dort
Sous le chêne
Quel piéds mignons et petit corps
Comme un oiseau tombé du nid
Je vient vers toi sur le chemin
Et je te gaude pour moi
Maintenant tu es mienne, petit ouiseau
Bell jeune fille dort
Dans la paume de ma main
Quand vas tu te reveiller et voir ma nouvelle maison
Tu seras surprise d’avoir voyager si loin.
Depuis le chêne
Ca te-ferait plaisir plaisir de devenir reine
Et que je mette des bijoux dans tes petites ailes

Very special thanks to Danielle Kabouri and Carole Merland for their kind assistance translating Katie’s lyrics into French.
