Un petit garçon, bien sage,
Aurait bien voulu savoir,
Comme tout enfant 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
A retrouver et ramener mon p'tit chat?"
English translation[]
A very wise little boy
Would have really liked to know
As would all children his age
How to meet a fairy.
The one from picture books,
Who punishes all the evildoers,
Or even the fairy of travels,
Who protects the poor people.
If he were to meet a fairy,
He'd say to her:
"Ma'am, could you help me
[To] find and bring back my little cat?"
