English Lyrics:

A Spider in the Bathroom

There’s a spider in the bathroom.
There’s a snail in the hall.
And I can see a centipede climbing up the wall!
There’s a bee in the bedroom.
There’s an ant in the hall.
I’m standing in the kitchen
And I’m not afraid at all!

There’s a spider in the garden.
There’s a snail in my bed.
There’s a green and yellow centipede
On my slice of bread!
There’s a bee in the bedroom.
There’s an ant in the hall.
I’m standing in the kitchen
And I’m not afraid at all!

The Music Box, Longman

French translation:

Une araignée dans la salle de bain

Il y a une araignée dans la salle de bain.
Il y a un escargot dans le hall.
Et je peux voir un mille-pattes grimper sur le mur !
Il y a une abeille dans la chambre.
Il y a une fourmi dans le hall.
Je suis debout dans la cuisine
Et je n’ai pas du tout peur !

Il y a une araignée dans le jardin.
Il y a un escargot dans mon lit.
Il y a un mille-pattes vert et jaune
Sur ma tranche de pain !
Il y a une abeille dans la chambre.
Il y a une fourmi dans le hall.
Je suis debout dans la cuisine
Et je n’ai pas du tout peur !
