Alors que j'étais dans ma pâture
Language: French (Français)  after the Andalusian 
Alors que j'étais dans ma pâture,
J'allais vers la hameau
Pour voir la fête du Corpus Christi,
Qu'on disait être si bien.
Ay, va, très bien, va,
Du Corpus Christi ils l'appellent, brunette
Du Corpus Christi ils l'appellent, c'est sûr.
Ay, va, très bien, va !
