When I went to a fiddle workshop for the first time, this was one of the pieces I had to learn. A very easy piece to play, excellent for beginners.

Mon papa ne veut pas

I found this several places on the net as a French children’s song with the full title "Mon papa ne veut pas". The posted transcription is the B part only. The complete tune with missing A part and words is:

C’est Gugusse avec son violon
qui fait danser les filles, qui fait danser les filles.
C’est Gugusse aver son violon
qui fait danser les filles et les garçons

(first time)
Mon papa ne veut pas que je danse, que je danse,
Mon papa ne veut pas que je danse la polka.
Qu’il dira c’quil voudra, moi je danse, moi je danse.
Qu’il dira c’qu’il voudra, moi je danse la polka.

(second time)
Mon papa ne veut pas que je mange, que je mange.
Mon papa ne veut pas que je mange du chocolat.
Qu’il dira c’quil voudra, moi je mange, moi je mange,
Qu’il dira c’quil voudra, moi je mange du chocolat

Ayuh, that’s the one! The sheet music I have only has one verse though.

Mon papa ne veut pas
que je danse que je danse
mon papa ne veut pas
que je danse la polka!

Anyone who can read French, a translation would greatly be apperciated!

Translation

Here’s Gugusse with his violin
That makes the girls dance, that makes the girls dance
Here’s Gugusse with his violin
That makes the girls and boys dance

My father doesn’t want me to dance, to dance
My father doesn’t want me to dance the polka
Say what he will, I’ll dance, I’ll dance
Say what he will, I’ll dance the polka

My father doesn’t want me to eat, to eat
My father doesn’t want me to eat chocolate
Say what he will, I’ll eat, I’ll eat
Say what he will, I’ll eat chocolate
