Hi, can anyone tell me the title and lyrics to that song Eliza Carthy sings (in French) about a pussycat? I think it might be on Heat Light and Sound, or another earlier recording... Thanks Daisy

Here it is, copied from Garry Gillard's site:

PETIT HOMME

Mon père m'a donné un mari
Oh mais quel homme quel petit homme
Mon père m'a donné un mari
Oh mais quel homme qu'il est si petit

La première nuit j'ai couch' auprès lui
Oh mais quel homme quel petit homme
La première nuit j'ai couch' auprès lui
Oh mais quel homme qu'il est si petit

Je l'ai perdu dans la paille
Oh mais quel homme quel petit homme
Je l'ai perdu dans la paille
Oh mais quel homme qu'il est si petit

Je l'ai assis sur une assiette
Oh mais quel homme quel petit homme
Je l'ai assis sur une assiette
Oh mais quel homme qu'il est si petit

Le chat l'a pris pour une souris
Oh mais quel homme quel petit homme
Le chat l'a pris pour une souris
Oh mais quel homme qu'il est si petit

O chat O chat c'est mon mari
Oh mais quel homme quel petit homme
O chat O chat c'est mon mari
Oh mais quel homme qu'il est si petit

OK, here's my rather literal translation, not meant to be singable:

LITTLE MAN

My father gave me a husband.
Oh, but what a man! What a little man!
My father gave me a husband.
Oh, but what a man! He's so little!

The first night I slept with him,
Oh, but what a man! What a little man!
The first night I slept with him,
Oh, but what a man! He's so little!

I lost him in the straw …

I set him on a plate …

The cat took him for a mouse …

O cat, O cat, that's my husband …
