Allons danser, Colinda

Allons danser, Colinda

Pendant qu’ta mère est pas là

Pour faire fâcher les vieilles femmes


C'est pas tout le monde a dansé

Tous les vieux valses d’antan

Pendant qu’ta mère est pas là

Allons danser, Colinda


Linda was the sweetest girl in all the bayou land

And all the boys who dance with her tried to win her hand


Her mother always chaperoned with Linda every night

She didn’t want no cajun boys to hold her daughter tight
