Genie Origin: Little Shoemaker (French/English/Italian) (92* d) RE: Origin: Little Shoemaker (French/English/Italian) 17 Jan 13

The most I can make out of Clooney's French lyrics is that it sounds like she's singing something like
"Chantez, m'en l'apprend tes danser, danser,
Dansez, dansez dans le pré."

That doesn't make too much sense or sound grammatical (I'm far from fluent in French, though I studied it for 2 years in college), but it kind of sounds like maybe she's sining something like "Sing, so I can learn to dance, dance, dance in the meadow."

Does that make any sense to you, Monique, and can you maybe fill in the gaps or figure out the part that sounds like "m'en l'apprend tes"?
