Où le coq a‑t‑il la plume?

Language: French (Français)

Où le coq a-t-il la plume?
Pas au bout du bec;
Le bois n'est pas sec,
La cheminée fume;
Où le coq a-t-il la plume?
Dans les doigts de la servante
Qui l'arrachent au croupion bleu;
Où le coq a-t-il la plume?
L'eau dans la marmite chante
Sur le feu.
Où le coq a-t-il la plume?
Sur le vieux volant de bois
Qu'on jette jusqu'en haut
Du toit;
La cheminée fume
Et la soupe bout sans bruit dans le pot:
Où le coq a-t-il la plume?
