We live on the Rue Marceau
Vingt-et-un le numéro

We play in zee Park Marceau
Everyday it’s there we go

We do things Mama don’t know
She too busy with her beau

And everyday we hop and skip
And fight and jump and fall down

We don’t care how bad we are
We only get a call down

After school how ?
And we do not give a good big damn

We play ‘oops et ra-ra-ra
Et rat-tat-tan
We bump into zee big fat man
We play ‘oops in the park all day

Mama, she scold, she say, “Eh, eh, eh!”
You mustn’t knock over the gentleman with the whip

And we play ‘oops
And we write words upon big fence
For only forty malipense
All day long we play avec les ‘oops
