This song can be sung as a lullaby or played as a circle game.

When it's sung as a lullaby, it's sung to the tune of the French song Fais dodo, Colas mon p'tit frère. (The translation can also be sung to the tune of the French song.) It has a different tune when it's played as a game and only the first verse is sung.

Notes

Literal Translation

The lizard and the little lizard
They go together to sunbathe,
In the winter when it's cold
And in the summer with (in) the heat.

If the sky is gray
They don't want to go out,
If the sky is blue
They run to the light.
