C'est Gugusse - French Children's Songs - France - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World, Intro Image


C'est Gugusse avec son violon
Qui fait danser les filles
Qui fait danser les filles
C'est Gugusse avec son violon
Qui fait danser les filles et les garçons.

Mon papa ne veut pas que je danse, que je danse
Mon papa ne veut pas que je danse la polka
Il dira ce qu'il voudra*, moi je danse moi je danse
Il dira ce qu'il voudra, moi je danse la polka du roi.

It's Gugusse with his violin
Who makes the girls go a-dancing,
Who makes the girls go a-dancing.
It's Gugusse with his violin
Who makes the girls and the boys go a-dancing.

My dad doesn't want me to dance, me to dance
My dad doesn't want me to dance the polka.
He will say what he wants, still I'll dance, still I'll dance,
He will say what he wants, still I'll dance the king's polka.

Notes

*The last 2 lines can be sung this way:

Mais quand il n'y est pas, moi je danse, moi je danse,
Mais quand il n'y est pas, moi je danse la polka.

English Translation:

But when he's not here, I dance, I dance,
But when he's not here, I dance the polka.

Some people add "du roi" at the end of the last line, some don't. If you do add it, then it's "je danse la polka du roi" (I dance the king's polka).
