Mon père m'a donné un mari,
R. :
mon Dieu, quel homme, quel petit homme !
Mon père m'a donné un mari,
mon Dieu, quel homm', qu'il est petit !

Je l’ai perdu dans mon grand lit,

J'pris une chandelle et le cherchis,

A la paillasse le feu prit,

Je trouvais mon mari roti,
Fillettes qui prenez un mari,
Ne prenez pas un si petit.
