1. Ah, Vous dirai-je, Maman (lyrics)

Ah! Vous dirai-je, Maman
Ce qui cause mon tourment?
Papa veut que je raisonne,
Comme une grande personne;
Moi, je dis que les bonbons
Valent mieux que la raison.

Ah! Let me tell you now, Mother,
What's the cause of my distress?
Father wants me to think clearly
Like a grown-up, oh how dreary
Me, I’d rather eat my lollies
They mean more to me by far.
