C'est pour aller au bal

Language: French (Français)

C’est pour aller au bal,
au bal, au bal, au baïkal allah!
au bal allah à la balalaïka

Rades du tyran
terre du Levant
Baron du devant tirades

nomme azur ce que
la dame mazurke
je t’assure que
cette danse est turque nomades

Est-ce bal à bord
Est-ce bu en bottes
on chante un foxtrotte
les phoques se trottent
faux nègres et, fausses notes

Pars à des requins
que fait Arlequin
Pars en rat, pas rare sequin
repas rare Parade

C’est pour aller au bal,
au bal, au bal, au baïkal allah!
au bal allah à la balalaïka
