Derrier chez nous y'a t'un étang (2x)
Trois beaux canards s'en vont baignant

V'la l'bon vent, v'la l'joli vent
V'la l'bon vent m'amie m'appelle
V'la l'bon vent, v'la l'joli vent
V'la l'bon vent m'amie m'attend

Trois beaux canards s'en vont baignant
Le fils du roi s'en va chassant

Le fils du roi s'en va chassant
Avec son grand fusil d'argent

Avec son grand fusil d'argent
Visa le noir, tua le blanc

Visa le noir, tua le blanc
Oh fils du roi, tu est méchant

Oh fils du roi, tu est méchant
D'avoir tuer mon canard blanc

a rough translation:

Behind our house there is a pond
Three handsome ducks went for a swim

Go good wind, go pretty wind
Go good wind, my friend is calling
Go good wind, go pretty wind
Go good wind, she waits for me

Three handsome ducks went for a swim
The king’s son went hunting

The king’s son went hunting
With his great silver gun

With his great silver gun
Wounded the black, killed the white

Wounded the black, killed the white
O, son of the king, you are cruel

O, son of the king, you are cruel
You have killed my white duck
