What'll we do with the baby-o?
What'll we do with the baby?
What'll we do with the baby-o?

Wrap him up in a tablecloth
Throw him up in the old hayloft
That's what we do with the baby
That's what we do with the baby-o

Every time the baby grins,
Give my baby another bottle of gin
That's what we do with the baby
That's what we do with the baby-o

Every time the baby cries
Stick my finger in the babies eyes
That's what we do with the baby
That's what we do with the baby-o

Il m’a dit: Si tu veux, on va jouer
Attention, mon ami, mon ami
La main droite va commencer
J’ai vu Coco, Coco le petit singe

Avec les pieds c'est comme ça. Quois? C'est comme ça. Comment? Comment? Comment? Comme ça.

Le bon roi
Le roi Dagobert a
Le bon roi Dagobert
A mis sa culotte à l'envers

Et quand c'était là dit mon pere va dommage

J’ai vu Coco, Coco le petit singe
Hier au zoo de Toronto dans sa p’tite cage
Il m’a dit: Si tu veux, on va jouer
Attention mon ami, mon ami
Fa la la la la la la

A mis sa culotte à l'envers
On chant un petit peu

    General CommentThe full lyrics sung here to Baby-o are

    What'll we do with the baby-o?
    What'll we do with the baby?
    What'll we do with the baby-o?

    Wrap him up in a tablecloth
    Throw him up in the old hayloft
    That's what we do with the baby
    That's what we do with the baby-o

    Every time the baby grins,
    Give my baby another bottle of gin
    That's what we do with the baby
    That's what we do with the baby-o

    Every time the baby cries
    Stick my finger in the babies eyes
    That's what we do with the baby
    That's what we do with the baby-o


    Also, in the movement 'Attention...Mon Ami...Fa-Lala-Lala-La-La...', are the kids chanting in Afrikaans? I'm pretty sure that its a dutch based language.

    General CommentVery powerful song.
    The kids are singing in french, something like this:

    "Attention, mon ami,
    il m'a dit, si tu veux on va jouer
    il m'a dit, si tu veux on va jouer
    Attention, mon ami, mon ami
    Avec les pieds c'est comme ça. Comment comment ? Comme ça.
    Le bon roi...
    Le roi dagobert à...
    Le roi dagobert à mis ses culotte à l'envers mais comme c'était qu'un idiot.
    Cococo le petit singe, hier au tôt, au tôt dans sa petite cage, il m'a dit, si tu veux on va jouer, attention, mon ami, mon ami, balalalalalala.
    Le roi dagobert à mis ses culottes a l'envers.
    On chante un petit peu de Titanic: sol fa sol [...]"

    It does not mean much, they sing various children songs.

    General CommentI see a common theme here, these songs are all about doom. What do you do with a dead infant? Its horrible, but its what they make music about, and its a good reminder of whats happening.
