The Children
(White voice)
Boucher, voudras-tu nous loger? (This with a childish supplication)
The Butcher
(With a hard, a brown voice)
Entrez, entrez, petits enfants, Y a d'la place assurement.
Interpreter
(Neutral voice)
Refrain:
II 6tait trois petits enfants
Qui s'en allaient glaner aux champs.
In the second verse the mterpreter is himself frightened by the crime he tells. His voice must show emotion; his is a trembling voice now, stirred by the action of the criminal butcher; he sings with a terrified voice:
lis n'6taient pas sit6t entr^s, Que le boucher les a tu6s ! Les a coupes en p'tits morceaux, Mis au saloir comme pourceaux !
Refrain:
II 6tait trois petits enfants
Qui s'en allaient glaner aux champs.
