Il était un petit homme … Mathilde Vareille

Once there was a little man

Pirouette peanut

Once there was a little man

Who lived in quite a strange house

Who lived in quite a strange house

 

His strange house is made of cardboard

Pirouette peanut,

His strange house is made of cardboard

And stairs are made of paper

And the stairs are made of paper.

 

Anyone who goes up them,

Pirouette peanut,

Anyone who goes up them,

Will break the tip of his nose,

Will break the tip of his nose.

 

The mailman, he went up them,

Pirouette peanut,

The mailman, he went up them,

He broke the tip of his nose,

He broke the tip of his nose.

 

He got his nose-tip mended,

Pirouette peanut,

He got his nose-tip mended,

With some pretty golden thread,

With some pretty golden thread.

 

But the pretty thread was broken,

Pirouette peanut,

But the pretty thread was broken,

And the nose-tip flew away,

And the nose-tip flew away.

 

A jet plane in the clear, blue sky,

Pirouette peanut,

A jet plane in the clear, blue sky,

Got the flying nose-tip back,

Got the flying nose-tip back.

 

If you really like my story,

Pirouette peanut,

If you really like my story,

I can sing it once again,

I can sing it once again.

 

Or

Now my story is finished,

Pirouette peanut

Now my story is finished,

Ladies and gentlemen clap your hands,

Ladies and gentlemen clap your hands.

 

 Il était un petit homme, pirouette, cacahouète
Il était un petit homme
qui avait une drôle de maison (X2)

Sa maison est en carton, pirouette, cacahouète
Sa maison est en carton
ses escaliers sont en papier. (X2)

Le premier qui y mont’ra, pirouette, cacahouète
Le premier qui y mont’ra
se cassera le bout du nez. (X2)

C’est le facteur qui y est monté, pirouette, cacahouète
C’est le facteur qui y est monté
il s’est cassé le bout du nez. (X2)

On lui a raccommodé, pirouette, cacahouète
On lui a raccommodé
avec du joli fil doré. (X2)

Le fil doré s’est envolé, pirouette, cacahouète
Le fil doré s’est envolé
le bout du nez s’est envolé. (bis)

Un avion à réaction, pirouette, cacahouète
Un avion à réaction
a rattrapé le bout du nez. (bis)

Mon histoire est terminée, pirouette, cacahouète
Mon histoire est terminée.
