La Victime - Métivier

Veis-tu l's écllaers, os-tu l'tounère?
Lé vent érage et la née a tché!
Les douits saont g'laïs, la gnièt est nère -
Ah, s'tu m'ôimes ouvre l'hus - ch'est mé!

Do you see the lightning, do you hear the thunder?
The wind is raging and the snow has fallen!
The streams are frozen, the night is dark -
Ah, if you love me open the door - it's me!
