Dame souris trotte

Language: French (Français)

Dame souris trotte,
Noire dans le gris du soir,
Dame souris trotte,
Grise dans le noir.

On sonne la cloche,
Dormez, les bons prisonniers!
On sonne la cloche :
Faut que vous dormiez.

Pas de mauvais rêve,
Ne pensez qu'à vos amours.
Pas de mauvais rêve :
Les belles toujours!

Le grand clair de lune!
On ronfle ferme à côté.
Le grand clair de lune
En réalité!

Un nuage passe,
Il fait noir comme en un four,
Un nuage passe.
Tiens, le petit jour!

Dame souris trotte,
Rose dans les rayons bleus,
Dame souris trotte:
Debout, paresseux!
