Lyrics

Sur le pont d’Avignon
L’on y danse, l’on y danse
Sur le pont d’Avignon
L’on y danse tous en rond
There was a girl, I’ve been told
With long fair hair and a heart of gold
Who chanced to pass that way one night
She heard that beat and she dug it right
On the bridge of Avignon
All the guys date their chicks
On the bridge of Avignon
They rock and jive away for kicks
That crazy music filled the air
But she could only stand and stare
Until a boy there caught her eye
He said, «C'mon baby: let’s try»
On the bridge of Avignon
All the guys date their chicks
On the bridge of Avignon
They rock and jive away for kicks
With his turned up nose and curly hair
She fell in love right then and there
He took her hand and walked her home
And promised never more to roam
On the bridge of Avignon
All the guys date their chicks
On the bridge of Avignon
They rock and jive away for kicks
The weeks passed by, so they say
And then at last he named the day
They married soon, oh what a thrill
In the little church upon the hill
On the bridge of Avignon
All the guys date their chicks
On the bridge of Avignon
They rock and jive away for kicks
Now he’s working hard from morn 'til night
To feed the kids and clothe 'em right
And now their family numbers ten
So watch your step when you’re there again
On the bridge of Avignon
All the guys date their chicks
On the bridge of Avignon
They rock and jive away for kicks
On the bridge of Avignon
