THE HERDSMEN of the Colombettes
At the dawn of day have risen;
        Ha ah! ha ah!
Cows, cows! to the milking come!
        Come here all of you,        5
        While and black ones,
        Red and brindled,
        Young ones, old ones,
        Under this oak-tree,
        Where I will milk you,        10
        Under this poplar,
        Where I will drain you!
Cows, cows! to the milking come!
