A little fable (Petite Fable)

English translation

A little fable

Between Beauty and the Beast, I'm both.
My lair is a huge comedy.
I am alone despite the shadow of your eyes.
Silence appeals to my madness
Hey Cindirella, I just scratched your pumpkin
with my high plump heel.1
How could I be authentic when people keep sullying me?
My pearl-white foot needs to be naked.
 
I gave my body to the Devil.
At any rate I've saved my soul.
I flee from the fable
I feel no reproach
The bad guy dies, the handsome one remains.
That's my life of luxury.
 
In the end I lost and won everything.
Don't you judge me, learn me2 instead.
I am upright, I am haunted.
Don't stare at me, live me2 instead.
Me, I am the little, proud princess
without finery and without a crown.
I've seen the snake, the weakness.
When I surrender myself, it's stark naked
 
I gave my body to the Devil.
At any rate I've saved my soul.
I flee from the fable
I feel no reproach
The bad guy dies, the handsome one remains.
That's my life of luxury.
 
I don't care what they say
Here is my life if you fancy it.
This tale made me stronger.
Me, I laugh, I leap and I sing.
 
  • 1. I quite like these two lines!
  • 2. a. b. she speaks as if she were a fable
Do whatever you want with my translations. I'm not rich enough to sue you anyway.

Her French is a bit peculiar. She tends to trade syntax for puns, and use slightly unusual words or expressions.
