Melci, scoici, raci, craci (English)

Snails, Clams, Crabs, Gams

I got into shoemaking,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
I got into shoemaking,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
I got into shoemaking,
The coolest trade ever.
Snails, clams, crabs, gams

In the forest near the mill,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
In the forest near the mill,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
In the forest near the mill,
I came upon a maiden.
Snails, clams, crabs, gams.

Her delicate little shoe
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
Her delicate little shoe
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
Her delicate little shoe
Came a little bit undone.
Snails, clams, crabs, gams.

Took the needle, pushed the thread,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
Took the needle, pushed the thread,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
Took the needle, pushed the thread,
To fix her surface.
Snails, clams, crabs, gams.

And I’ve put the thread in two,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
And I’ve put the thread in two,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
And I’ve put the thread in two,
To stitch her a new tongue.

And with my mouth I pushed the thread,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
And with my mouth I pushed the thread,
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
And with my mouth I pushed the thread,
So I would fix her crack.
Snails, clams, crabs, gams.

And from that day, in my village
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
And from that day, in my village
Snails, clams, crabs, gams
And from that day, in my village
She comes in for service.
Snails, clams, crabs, gams.
