    Un jour il lui demande
    Oui Que dit on de moue

    On dit de vous en ville
    Que vous serez pendu

    Mais s'il faut qu'on me pende
    Deliez moi les pieds

    La fille etait jeunette
    Les pieds lui a delie

    Le prisonnier alerte
    Dans la Loire a saute

    (slow down)
    Des qu'il fut sur les rives
    Il se prit a chanter

    (speed up again)
    Je chante pour les belles
    Surtout celle du geolier

    Si je reviens a Nantes
    Oui je l'epouserai

    and thanks for the minor corrections...
    Not too shabby for someone who hasn't taken french since highschool (6 years ago)

    I thought 'reaches the banks of the river' was a reference to the River Styx and death.
    Cool... I'm glad he got away!
