Lyrics

Here are the verses I know. I’ve heard there are many more - some of which we can’t print here. :)

Mademoiselle, voulez-vous danser
la bastringue, la bastringue?
Mademoiselle, voulez-vous danser?
La bastringue va commencer.

Oui, Monsieur, je veux bien danser
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Oui, Monsieur, je veux bien danser
C’est pour vous accompagner.

Mademoiselle, il faut nous arrêter
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Mademoiselle, il faut nous arrêter
Vous allez vous fatiguer!

Non, Monsieur, je sais bien danser
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Non, Monsieur, je sais bien danser.
Je suis prête à r’commencer!

Mademoiselle, je n’peux plus danser,
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Mademoiselle, je n’peux plus danser,
car j’en ai des cors aux pieds!

Mademoiselle, would you like to dance
the bastringue, the bastringue?
Mademoiselle, would you like to dance?
The bastringue is about to start.

Yes, Monsieur, I would like to dance
the bastringue, the bastringue.
Yes, Monsieur, I would like to dance
In order to accompany you.

Mademoiselle, we must stop
the bastringue, the bastringue.
Mademoiselle, we must stop.
You will tire yourself!

No, Monsieur, I know how to dance
the bastringue, the bastringue.
No, Monsieur, I know how to dance.
I’m ready to start again!

Mademoiselle, I can’t dance any more
the bastringue, the bastringue.
Mademoiselle, I can’t dance any more,
because I have corns on my feet!
