The Parasol Dress

La Robe à Parasol

Trim your dress, trim your dress,
Trim your dress in the parasol style.

If you have hips, if you have hips,
Trim your dress in the parasol style.

Trim your dress, trim your dress,
Trim your dress in the parasol style.

Go to sleep, go to sleep,
Go to sleep in your baby's arms.

Balance yourself, balance yourself,
Balance yourself in your baby's arms.

If you have hips, if you have hips,
Trim your dress in the parasol style.

Go to sleep, go to sleep.
Go to sleep in your baby's arms.

Balance yourself, balance yourself.
Balance yourself in your baby's arms.

Trim your dress, trim your dress.
Trim your dress in the parasol style

Tailles ta robe, tailles ta robe,
Tailles ta robe la mode ? parasol.

Si l'as des hanches, si t'as des hanches,
Tailles la robe la mode ? parasol.

Tailles ta robe, mais Tailles ta robe,
Tailles ta robe la mode a parasol.

Sommeillez, sommeillez,
Sommeillez dans: les bras de ton n?gre.

Balancez, balancez,
Balancez dans les bras de ton n?gre.

Si l'as des hanches, si t'as des hanches,
Tailles ta robe la mode ? parasol.

Sommeillez. sommeillez,
Sommeillez dans les bras de ton n?gre.

Balancez, balancez,
Balancez dans les bras de ton n?gre.

Tailles ta robe. tailles ta robe,
Tailles ta robe la mode a parasol.
