Original text and translations

French.png French text

Allons, allons, gai, gaiement ma mignonne,
vous et moi.
Mon père a fait faire un château,
il est petit mais il est beau.

Gaiement ma mignonne, allons, allons gai,
vous et moi.

D'or et d'argent sont les créneaux,
le roi n'en a pas un si beau.

Gaiement ma mignonne, allons, allons gai,
vous et moi.

English.png English translation

Come, come gaily, gaily, my pretty one,
you and I.
My father’s built a castle,
small, but beautiful.

Come, come gaily, gaily, my pretty one,
you and I.

Of gold and silver are the battlements,
The king has not one so fair.

Gaily, my beauty, come, come gaily,
you and I.
