Lyrics[]

Y'a un rat dans l' grenier
J'entends le chat qui miaule,
Y'a un rat dans l' grenier
J'entends le chat miauler.
J'entends, j'entends,
J'entends le chat qui miaule,
J'entends, j'entends, 
J'entends le chat miauler.

Sur le pont d?Avignon
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d?Avignon
L'on y danse tous en rond

There's a rat in the barn,
I hear the cat go meow,
I hear, I hear, 
I hear the cat meowing,
I hear, I hear,
I hear the cat go meow.

On the bridge of Avignon
We all dance there, we all dance there
On the bridge of Avignon
We all dance there round and round.
