La chanson du bébé
EnglishFrançais
La chanson du bébé sets a poem by Pacini, full of baby language, with the infant revelling in his limited vocabulary of ‘atishoo’, ‘Mummy’, ‘yummy’, ‘wee-wee’, ‘bye-byes’ and, most memorably ‘pooh’ (‘ca-ca’) as at the end of the song he triumphantly lets the world know that he has done his business! (Rossini, by the way, could not abide dirt of any description.)
