L'état des feilles

Language: Bourguignon

Ç'n'ast pas l'état des feilles
De corir les garçons,
Ma ç'ast l'état des feilles
De r'messer les mâsons, zon, zon, zon !

Quand les mâsons sont propres,
Les amains y venont ;
I-z-y vienn' quatre à quatre ;
Souvent i-z-y restont, ton, ton ton !

S'asseyont sur le coffre
Le frappont des talons,
Et si le coffre est vide
Bien vite ils s'en allont, lon, lon !

Ç'n'ast pas l'état des feilles
De corir les garçons
Ma ç'ast l'état des feilles
De r'messer les mâsons, zon, zon, zon !
