Lyrics of All Around This World version

V’la l’bon vent, V’la joli vent
V’la l’bon vent, M’amie m’appelle
V’la l’bon vent, V’la joli vent
V’la l’bon vent, M’amie m’appelle

Go good wind, go pretty wind
Go good wind, M’amie m’appelle
Go good wind, Go pretty wind
Go good wind, M’amie m’appelle

Behind our house there is a pond
Three ducks swam there all day long

One day the king’s son happened by
he shot the ducks, no one knows why

What do we need with riches dear?
We’d rather have our white duck here
