La petite poule grise

L'était une petite poule grise
Qu'allait pondre dans l'église
Pondait un p'tit' coco
Que l'enfant mangeait tout chaud
 
L'était une p'tit' poul' noir
Qu'allait pondre dans l'armoire
Pondait un p'tit' coco
Que l'enfant mangeait tout chaud
 
L'était une p'tit' poul' blanche
Qu'allait pondre dans la grange
Pondait un p'tit' coco
Que l'enfant mangeait tout chaud
 
L'était une p'tit' poul' rousse
Qu'allait pondre dans la mousse
Pondait un p'tit' coco
Que l'enfant mangeait tout chaud
 
L'était une p'tit' poule beige
Qu'allait pondre dans la neige
Pondait un p'tit' coco
Que l'enfant mangeait tout chaud
 
L'était une p'tit' poule brune
Qu'allait pondre sur la lune
Pondait un p'tit' coco
Que l'enfant mangeait tout chaud

The little grey hen

There was a small gray hen
That would lay her eggs in the church
She laid a little egg (1)
That the child ate while yet hot
 
There was a little black hen
That would lay her eggs in the cabinet
She laid a little egg
That the child ate while yet hot
 
There was a small white hen
What would lay her eggs in the barn
She laid a little egg
That the child ate while yet hot
 
There was a small red hen
What would lay in the moss
She laid a little egg
That the child ate while yet hot
 
There was a small beige hen
What was going to lay in the snow
She laid a little egg
That the child ate while yet hot
 
There was a small brown hen
What would lay on the moon
She laid a little egg
That the child ate while yet hot
 
Thanks!

His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all
who play stringed instruments and pipes. (Genesis 4:21)
