Poupée valsante
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Petite poupée valsant si gentiment,
Ah! reviens nous charmer.

Ton regard câlin, regard ensorceleur,
éveille en nous l'amour.

Reviens pour nous éblouir de l'or de tes cheveux,
Ah! reviens nous charmer,
Ah! tu ravis les coeurs.
Ta fraîcheur exquise comble tous nos voeux.

Petite poupée valsant...

Au rythme berceur et tendre,
Oui tu saura bien nous prendre,
Par ton rire enjoleur,
Tu ravis tous les coeurs.

Petite poupée valsant...
