This is the French version of the 8 part choral setting of my "Centipede and the Frog" song   

Un cent-pattes était bien content
Mais la grenouille l'interroge
«Comment sais-tu quelle patte va avant
C'est la gauche ou droite ou quoi?»

Il commence un pas, s'arrête encore,
Il bouge ses pattes en octuors
Et trébuche comme dans un rêve

ça lui fait penser, mais beaucoup trop
l'immobilise tout en chaos
il ne peut plus marcher droit.

Orignal English version:
Verse 1
A Centipede was happy quite
Until a frog in fun
said "Pray tell which leg comes after which?"
(with a left right right left right)
This raised her mind to such a pitch
she lay distracted in a ditch
Considering how to run.
Verse 2
She stopped and thought and, mystified,
Soloquized on this;
Put right foot first and found it left
Her left leg wrong right side
This raised her mind to such a pitch
she lay distracted in a ditch
Considering how to run.
The sound sample is a performance of the original English version.
