Genie Origin: Little Shoemaker (French/English/Italian) (92* d) RE: Origin: Little Shoemaker (French/English/Italian) 18 Jan 13


What do you think of this, Monique? (This is what it sounds to me like Clooney is singing in French, though I realize that some different words and phrases can sound alike.)

Chantez, m'en apprends ta danser, danser,
Danser, danser dans le pré.
Chantez m'en apprends ta danser, danser,
Danser, danser ŕ le gré.

Google Translates that as :
Sing, teach me your dance, dancing,
Dance, dance in the meadow.
Sing me teach your dance, dancing,
Dance, dance at the wishes.

I'd rephrase that as:
"Sing, (in) teaching me your dance, dance,
Dancing, dancing in the meadow.
Sing, teaching me your dance, dance,
Dancing, dancing as I wish."
