French
Tom Pillibi a deux châteaux
Le premier en Écosse
Tom Pillibi a deux châteaux
L’autre au Monténégro

Il a aussi deux grands vaisseaux
Qui vont au bout du monde
Chercher des ors et des coraux
Et les plus beaux joyaux

Il a d’la chance – Tom Pillibi
Et moi, je pense que je suis son amie
Il est si riche, que je l’envie
Il est si riche – sacré Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi a deux secrets
Qu’il ne livre à personne
Tom Pillibi a deux secrets
Moi seule, je les connais

La fille du roi lui sourit
Et l’attend dans sa chambre
La fille du roi lui sourit
Et la bergère aussi

Il a d’la chance – Tom Pillibi
Et moi, je pense que je suis son amie
Quelle bonne étoile veille sur lui?
Quelle bonne étoile? Sacré Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi n’a qu’un défaut
Le mal n’est pas bien grave
Tom Pillibi n’a qu’un défaut
Le mal n’est pas bien gros

Il est charmant, il a bon cœur
Il est plein de vaillance
Il est charmant, il a bon cœur
Mais il est si menteur

Que rien n’existe de tout cela
Mais je m’en fiche quand je suis dans ses bras
Car je suis reine du grand pays
Où il m’entraîne – sacré Tom Pillibi

Translation
Tom Pillibi has two castles
The first one in Scotland
Tom Pillibi has two castles
The other one in Montenegro

He also has two ships
Which go to the end of the world
To search for gold and corals
And the most beautiful jewels

He’s lucky – Tom Pillibi
And I think that I’m his girlfriend
He’s so rich, that I envy him
He’s so rich – blasted Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi has two secrets
Which he won’t tell anyone
Tom Pillibi has two secrets
I’m the only one who knows them

The king’s daughter smiles to him
And waits for him in her bedroom
The king’s daughter smiles to him
And the shepherdess too

He’s lucky – Tom Pillibi
And I think that I’m his girlfriend
Which good star is looking after him?
Which good star? Blasted Tom Pillibi

Tom Pillibi has only one fault
But it’s nothing serious
Tom Pillibi has only one fault
But it’s not such a big thing

He’s charming, he’s kind-hearted
He has so much courage
He’s charming, he’s kind-hearted
But he’s such a liar

Because nothing exists of all that
But I don’t care when I’m in his arms
Because I’m the queen of the big country
Where he takes me to – blasted Tom Pillibi
