Gue gue solingaie, balliez chimin la. (repeat) m'a dis li, oui,
M'a dis li. calbass' li connain parler. (repeat)
Sleep, sleep, don't you weep. dry your tears a-while. dream,
Dream, then you'll hear the singing crocodile.
Oh, dreaming, we'll go dreaming. hush, now, baby, don't you cry.
Sail, sail, pretty babe, while the moon is low. through bright
Bayou night, the dreamboats drifting slow.
