Petit escargot
Portait sur son dos
Sa maisonette
Aussitôt qu'il pleut
Il se sent heureux
Et sort ses cornes*
Tirap tirap ti ra la la la la la
Tirap tirap ti ra la la la la la
Tirap tirap ti ra la la la la la!

The Little Snail
Carries on his back
His little house.
As soon as it rains
He feels happy
And puts out his horns.
Tirap tirap ti ra la la la la la
Tirap tirap ti ra la la la la la
Tirap tirap ti ra la la la la la!
