American Ballads and Folk Songs
Li pas mande robe mousseline, Li pas mande des bas brodes, Li pas mande souliers prinellej C'est li mo 'oule, c'est li ma pren,
Aurore Pradere, belle 'ti fille, (ter) C'est li mo 'oule, c'est li ma pren. Ya moun qui dit li trop zolie; Ya moun qui dit li pas polie j Tout ga ya dit (Sia!) bin fou bin, C'est li mo 'oule, c'est li ma pren.
Translation
Aurore Pradere, pretty maid,
She's just what I want and her I'll have.
A muslin gown she does not choose,
She doesn't ask for 'broidered hose,
She doesn't want prunella shoes;
Oh, she's what I want and her I'll have.
Aurore Pradere, pretty maid,
She's what I want and her I'll have.
Some folks say she's too pretty quite j
Some folks say she's not polite,
All this they say—Psha-a-ah!
More fool am I!
For she's what I want and her I'll have.
Aurore Pradere, pretty maid,
She's what I want and her I'll have.
Some say she's going to the bad}
Some say her mama went madj
All this they say—Psha-a-ah!
More fool am I!
For she's what I want and her I'll have.
