Author's comments:

The usual way to sing this song in Finnish. It's versified and unliteral. It's not mine.

There's a variation to the last line:
Pim pam pom, Pim pam pom

The Finnish version could be translated back to French like this:

Cher Jacques, cher Jacques
Réveille-toi ! Réveille-toi !
Sonne tes cloches ! Sonne tes cloches !
Pime, pame, pome ; pime pame, pome
