about

La Bastringue is a French Canadian party song which tells the tale of an older man who wants to dance "La Bastringue" with a young woman. When he realizes he can’t keep up on the dance floor the man suggests they stop so that she doesn’t get tired out. She will have none of this and wants to finish the dance. Eventually the man insists on stopping because he has corns on his feet.

lyrics

Mademoiselle, voulez-vous danser
la bastringue, la bastringue?
Mademoiselle, voulez-vous danser? La bastringue va commencer. .
Oui, Monsieur, je veux bien danser
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Oui, Monsieur, je veux bien danser
La bastringue si vous voulez. .
Mademoiselle, il faut nous arrêter
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Mademoiselle, il faut nous arrêter
Vous allez vous fatiguer!
Non, Monsieur, je sais bien danser
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Non, Monsieur, je sais bien danser.
Je suis prête à r'commencer!

Mademoiselle, je n'peux plus danser,
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Mademoiselle, je n'peux plus danser,
car j'en ai des cors aux pieds!
Mais Monsieur, je veux plus danser
la bastringue, la bastringue.
Mais Monsieur, je veux plus danser.
Je suis prête à r'commencer.
