Dans La Prison de Londres

Dans la prison de Londres
Dam diddle, diddle, dam, da dim dum diddle, diddle day.
Dans la prison de Londres
'Y avait un prisonnier,
'Y avait un prisonnier.

Personne ne vint le voir
Que la fille du jolier.

"Dites-moi, done, ma belie
Demain si je mourrai.

"Puis-que je meurs demain,
Lachez-moi done les pieds."

Quand il eu les pieds lache/:
A la mer s'est jete/:

A la premiere plonge
Il a  manque/ s'noyer.

A la deuxieme plonge,
La mer a traverse/.

Ouand ii fut sur ses cotes,
Il s'est mit a chanter.

"Si jamais j'y retourne,
Oui, je I'e pouserai!"

TRANSLATION

In the prison in London
There was a prisoner.

No one came to see him
But the jailer's daughter.
"Tell me, my beauty,
If I am going to die tomorrow.

"Since I am going to die tomorrow,
Untie my feet."

When his feet were untied
He jumped into the sea.

On the first plunge
He nearly drowned.

On the second plunge
He crossed the sea.

When he landed on his own shores
He burst out singing.

"If I ever go back there
I'll marry her!"
