Pimpanicaille - French Children's Songs - France - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


The translation above is literal. Here is a "singable" translation…

Pimpanicaille, the king of butterflies,
While shaving his grin, he got cut on the chin,
One, two, three, a tree,
Four, five, six, some sticks,
Seven, eight, nine, fine,
Ten, eleven, twelve,
Go to New Rochelle.
