This Christmas Carol is sung in the language of the Troubadours.

Lo paure Satan - Occitan Children's Songs - Occitania - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Notes

*"Cuèch" means "cooked, done, baked". It also means exhausted and allows this play on words.
**Idiom: To see someone only in paintings means to not see them at all.
