There was a young man from France;
Once I just met him by chance...
He liked neither cheese, nor women, nor wine,
He wore no moustache, speaking English was fine,
And he didn't know how to dance.
(Oh wait, was he really from France?)

Well, there was a young man from France;
Once I just asked him by chance
Oh why I deserve
To eat frogs as hors d'oeuvre
And then he grew pale (and not once!)

(actually hors d'oeuvre is pronounced as "o dovr", so there is rhyme here, guys!)

There was a young man from France;
Once I just met him by chance.
He was carrying a stone,
Molotov cocktail was thrown,
And he swore in Arabic at once.
(Ibn himar president de la France!)

There was a young man from France;
Once I just met him by chance.
How I knew that he wasn't Russian?
Simple. We walked through the center and had a discussion,
I noticed Americans and his scornful glance
