Mon P'tit Chat
植松伸夫 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Un petit garçon, bien sage,
Aurait bien voulu savoir,
Comme tout enfants de son âge
Comment rencontrer la fée.

Celle des livres d’images
Qui punit tous les méchants.
Ou bien la fée des voyages
Qui protège les pauvres gens.

Pourvu qu’il rencontre une fée,
Il lui dirait :




« Madame, pouvez-vous m’aider
À retrouver et ramener mon p’tit chat ? »
