Song Lyrics

Petit papa No?l - French Christmas Carol
Lyrics for "Petit papa No?l," a traditional French Christmas carol

Petit papa No?l is a French Christmas carol. As far as I know, there is no equivalent English version of this Christmas carol. The translation given here is literal.

C'est la belle nuit de No?l
La neige ?tend son manteau blanc
Et les yeux lev?s vers le ciel
? genoux, les pet*ts enfants
Avant de fermer les paupi?res
Font une derni?re pri?re.
It's a beautiful Christmas night
Snow spreads its white coat
And eyes lift toward the sky
On their knees, small children
Before closing their eyes
Say a last prayer.

Petit papa No?l
Quand tu descendras du ciel
Avec des jouets par milliers
N'oublie pas mon petit soulier.
Mais avant de partir
Il faudra bien te couvrir
Dehors tu vas avoir si froid
C'est un peu ? cause de moi.
Little Santa Claus
When you come down from the sky
With thousands of toys
Don't forget my little stocking.
But before you leave
You should dress well
Outside you will be so cold
And it's kind of my fault.
Le marchand de sable est pass?
Les enfants vont faire dodo
Et tu vas pouvoir commencer

Avec ta hotte sur le dos
Au son des cloches des ?glises
Ta distribution de surprises.
The sandman has passed
The children are going to sleep
And you will be able to begin,
With your sack on your back,
To the sound of church bells,
Your distribution of surprises.

Refrain

Il me tarde que le jour se l?ve
Pour voir si tu m'as apport?
Tous les beaux joujoux que je vois en r?ve
Et que je t'ai command?s.

Refrain

I can't wait for sunrise
To see if you brought me
All the lovely toys that I see in my dreams
And that I ordered from you.

Refrain

Et quand tu seras sur ton beau nuage
Viens d'abord sur notre maison
Je n'ai pas ?t? tous les jours tr?s sage
Mais j'en demande pardon.

Refrain

And when you are on your beautiful cloud
Come first to our house
I wasn't always very good
But I ask for your forgiveness.
