Here's the song in French:

Une petite fleur l'amour,
La belle aux mille oiseaux
Petite fille jamalac comme il t'aime,
Une petite fleur l'amour,
La belle aux mille oiseaux
Petite fille jamalac comme il t'aime.
Dors petit bébé, c'est l'histoire de maman avec son papa,
Dors petit bébé, c'est l'histoire de maman avec son papa.
