Bonny at morn

Language: English

The sheep's in the meadows, the kye's in the corn,
Thou's ower lang in thy bed, bonny at morn.
Canny at night, bonny at morn,
Thou's ower lang in they bed,
Bonny at morn.

The bird's in the nest, the trout's in the burn,
Thou hinders thy mother in many a turn.
Canny at night, bonny at morn,
Thou's ower lang in they bed,
Bonny at morn.

We're all laid idle wi' keeping the bairn,
The lad winnot work and the lass winnot lairn.
Canny at night, bonny at morn,
Thou's ower lang in they bed,
Bonny at morn.

Beau le matin

Language: French (Français) after the English

Les moutons sont dans les prairies, la vache est dans le blé,
Tu es allongé sur ton lit, beau le matin,
Malin la nuit, beau le matin,
Tu es allongé sur ton lit,
Beau le matin.

L'oiseau est dans le nid, la truite est dans le ruisseau,
Tu gênes ta mère par tes tours,
Malin la nuit, beau le matin,
Tu es allongé sur ton lit,
Beau le matin.

Nous sommes tous allongés à paresser en gardant les enfants,
Le garçon ne veut pas travailler et la fille ne veut pas apprendre,
Malin la nuit, beau le matin,
Tu es allongé sur ton lit,
Beau le matin.
