Ramonez-moi ma cheminée,
ramonez la moi haut et bas.
Une dame, la matinée, disait de chaleur forcenée:
"Mon ami, prenons nos ébats,
ramonez-moi ma cheminée…"

Sweep my chimney,
top to bottom",
that's what this totty says to me
one morning (well warmly).
"Ream my flue and let's do some stuff."
(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
