(chorus)
V'là l'bon vent, v'là l'joli vent
V'là l'bon vent mamie m'appelle
V'là l'bon vent, v'là l'joli vent
V'là l'bon vent mamie m'attend

Derrière chez nous y a-t-un étang (x2)
Trois beaux canards s'en vont baignant

(chorus)

Le fils du roi s'en va chassant (x2)
Avec son beau fusil d'argent

(chorus)

Visa le noir, tua le blanc (x2)
- Ô fils du roi, tu es méchant!

(chorus)

D'avoir tué mon canard blanc (x2)
Par-dessous l'aile il perd son sang

(chorus)

Par les yeux lui sort des diamants (x2)
Et par le bec l'or et l'argent

(chorus)

Toutes ses plumes s'en vont au vent (x2)
Trois dames s'en vont les ramassant

(chorus)

C'est pour en faire un lit de camp (x2)
Pour y coucher tous les passants

(chorus)


Translation

(chorus)
Here's good wind, here's sweet wind
Here's good wind, grandma's calling me
Here's good wind, here's sweet wind
Here's good wind, grandma's waiting for me

(chorus)

Behind my house there is a pond (x2)
Three nice ducks are going there to bathe

(chorus)

The king's son is going there to hunt
With his beautiful silver gun

(chorus)

Aimed at the black one, killed the white one
- O son of the king, you're mean!

(chorus)

You killed my white duck
He's bleeding under his wing

(chorus)

From his eyes are going out some diamonds
And from his beak, gold and silver

(chorus)

All his feathers are flying through the wind
These three dame are going to pick them

(chorus)

It's to make a camp bed out of it
For tired travelers

(chorus)
