La légende de Saint Nicolas - French Children's Songs - France - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


Another version of the 2nd verse:

"Entrez, entrez, petits enfants
Il y a d' la place assurément."
Ils n'étaient pas sitôt entrés,
Que le boucher les a tués.

English Translation:

"Come in, come in, little children
There's room, for sure."
No sooner had they come in,
Then the butcher killed them.

**It's "s'enfuya" instead of "s'enfuit" to keep the rhyme.
