Comments

Monique said, "When I was a teenager, we would sing an alternate, slangy version..."

Le coq est mort, le coq est mort,
Il a crevé, on l'a bouffé,
Il ne dira plus cocodi, cocoda,
Il ne dira plus co-co-di, co-co-da
Coco cocodi cocodi, coda.

A Singable English Translation

The rooster's dead, the rooster's dead,
He croaked and we gobbled him up,
He'll no longer say cocodi, cocoda
He'll no longer say cocodi, cocoda
Coco cocodi cocodi, coda.
