CREOLE:

Gardé piti mulet là “Musjeu Bainjo”,

    La com’ li insolent!

Chapeau sul’ côté,

    Soulié qui fait “Circ-crac”

gardé piti mulet là, “Musieu Bainjo,”

    La com’ li insolent!

 

Gardé piti mulet là “Musjeu Bainjo”,

    La com’ li insolent!

Foular á la pouche

    La canne á la main.

Gardé piti mulet là, “Musieu Bainjo,”

    La com’ li insolent!

 

 

ENGLISH:

See the little mulatto, “Mister Banjo”

    Hasn’t he a saucy air!

Hat cock’d on one side, 

    New shoes that go “circ-crac”

See the little mulatto, “Mister Banjo” 

    Hasn’t he a saucy air!

 

See the little mulatto, “Mister Banjo”

    Hasn’t he a saucy air!

Kerchief in his vest, 

    Walking-cane in hand. 

See the little mulatto, “Mister Banjo”

Hasn’t he a saucy air!
