Tom Pillibi


Tom Pillibi a deux châteaux – le premier en Écosse
Tom Pillibi a deux châteaux – l'autre au Monténégro
Il a aussi deux grands vaisseaux qui vont au bout du monde
Chercher des ors et des coraux et les plus beaux joyaux

Il a d'la chance – Tom Pillibi
Et moi, je pense que je suis son amie
Il est si riche, que je l'envie
Il est si riche – sacré Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi a deux secrets qu'il ne livre à personne
Tom Pillibi a deux secrets – moi seule, je les connais
La fille du roi lui sourit et l'attend dans sa chambre
La fille du roi lui sourit et la bergère aussi

Il a d'la chance – Tom Pillibi
Et moi, je pense que je suis son amie
Quelle bonne étoile veille sur lui?
Quelle bonne étoile? – Sacré Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi n'a qu'un défaut, le mal n'est pas bien grave
Tom Pillibi n'a qu'un défaut, le mal n'est pas bien gros
Il est charmant, il a bon cœur, il est plein de vaillance
Il est charmant, il a bon cœur, mais il est si menteur

Que rien n'existe de tout cela
Mais je m'en fiche quand je suis dans ses bras
Car je suis reine du grand pays
Où il m'entraîne – sacré Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi


Tom Pillibi has two castles – the first one in Scotland
Tom Pillibi has two castles – the other one in Montenegro
He also has two ships which go to the end of the world
To search for gold and corals and the most beautiful jewels

He's lucky – Tom Pillibi
And I think that I'm his girlfriend
He's so rich, that I envy him
He's so rich – blasted Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi has two secrets, which he won't tell anyone
Tom Pillibi has two secrets – I'm the only one who knows them
The king's daughter smiles to him and waits for him in her bedroom
The king's daughter smiles to him and the shepherdess too

He's lucky – Tom Pillibi
And I think that I'm his girlfriend
Which good star is looking after him?
Which good star? – Blasted Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi has only one fault, but it's nothing serious
Tom Pillibi has only one fault, but it's not such a big thing
He's charming, he's kind-hearted, he has so much courage
He's charming, he's kind-hearted, but he's such a liar

Because nothing exists of all that
But I don't care when I'm in his arms
Because I'm the queen of the big country
Where he takes me to – blasted Tom Pillibi
