THE GOOSE AND THE GANDER
Mike Bryden 2018

I woke up ce matin
To a knocking à la porte
Je me suis dit, “who could that be?”
C’est bien trop tôt, for receiving company

Et oui, I looked and found a letter
Et puis, this morning just got better
C’était pour moi, a lovely invitation
De mes amis, to a special celebration, and it said

CHORUS
My jolie salamander
My jolie salamander
Je vous en prie, please come to our party
Signed the goose and the gander

J’ai commencé par faire une liste
Of all things I could bring as a gift
I thought long and I thought hard
Peut-êtres des fleurs mais quelles couleurs?

Ou un ballon, could they both enjoy this toy?
Un camion, for a girl or a boy?
I asked for help from le coq et la poule
I said, aider-moi to the cow and the bull, Ils ont ri, ils ont tous dit

CHORUS
Ma gentille salamander
Ma gentille salamander
Quand tu y pense, What’s good for the goose is good for the gander
Quand tu y pense, What’s good for the goose is good for the gander

Soudainement it became so clear
Aucun soucis, I had nothing to fear
Peu importe your gender, colour or name
Nous sommes pareilles, in our hearts we’re all the same

CHORUS
Oh silly salamander
Oh silly salamander
Nous sommes amies, you, me, the goose and the gander
Nous sommes amies, you, me, the goose and the gander

ROUND
Nous sommes amies, nous sommes amies, nous sommes amies, nous sommes amies….

Nous sommes amies, bien oui. Nous sommes amies, bien oui
You me the goose and the gander…

I am he, as you are she, and they and we, together equally, bien oui

Moi j’suis moi, comme elle et lui, et eux en plus, contents d’être inclus, and they said

You me the goose and the gander
