La fileuse
Language: French (Français)  after the Occitan 
Quand j'étais petite
Je gardais les moutons,
Ti lirou lirou... la la diri tou tou la lara!

J'avais une houlette
Et j'appelais un petit berger,
Ti lirou lirou... la la diri tou tou la lara!

Pour faire le berger
Il m'a demandé un baiser.
Ti lirou lirou... la la diri tou tou la lara!

Et moi, pas ingrate,
Je lui en ai donné deux !
Ti lirou lirou... la la diri tou tou la lara!
