Dans une fosse comme un ours
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG
Dans une fosse comme un ours
Chaque matin je me promène
Tournons tournons tournons toujours
Le ciel est bleu comme une chaîne
Dans une fosse comme un ours
Chaque matin je me promène

Dans la cellule d'à côté
On y fait couler la fontaine
Avec les clefs qu'il fait tinter
Que le geôlier aille et revienne
Dans la cellule d'à côté
On y fait couler la fontaine

D. Shostakovich sets stanza 2
