Lyrics[edit]

Extended[edit]

Voici venir les Barbapapa
Toujours contents
Papa et Maman Barbapapa
et leurs enfants
Les p'tits et les grands
Se transforment à volonté
Ronds ou carrés ...

Barbapapa est tout rose, rose
Plus rose qu'une rose rose
Barbamama est plus noire
Plus noire qu'une rose noire
Barbibul est jaune, jaune
Barbalala verte comme une pomme
Barbotine, cet ange
A la couleur des oranges
Barbouille est noir comme un corbeau
et chaque fois qu'il prend ses pinceaux
Il se couvre de tâches de bas en haut
Barbabelle est violette
Barbidou est tout bleu
Barbidur est un athlète aussi rouge que le feu
Et tout ce petit monde est heureux !

Voici venir les Barbapapa !
On fait les fous !
Dans la famille des Barbapapa
Viens avec nous chez Barbapapa
Ils se transforment à volonté
Courts, longs, carrés
Minces, gros ou ronds

Viens avec nous chez Barbapapa !
Il y a Barbapapa, Barbamama, Barbidou, Barbouille,
Viens avec nous chez Barbapapa !
Barbabelle et Barbidur, Barbotine et Barbibul et Barbalala !
Viens avec nous chez Barbapapa !
Here come the Barbapapas
Always happy
Papa and Mama Barbapapa
and their children
Young and old
Transform at will
Round or square...

Barbapapa is all pink, pink
Pinker than a pink rose
Barbamama is blacker
Blacker than a black rose
Barbabright is yellow, yellow
Barbalala's green like an apple
Barbalib, this angel
The color of oranges
Barbabeau is black as a crow
and every time he picks up his brushes
He covers himself with stains from the bottom up
Barbabelle is purple
Barbazoo is all blue
Barbabravo is an athlete as red as fire
And all of the world is happy!

Here come the Barbapapas!
We go crazy!
In the Barbapapa family
Come with us chez Barbapapa
They're transforming at will
Short, long, squares
Thin, big, or round

Come with us chez Barbapapa!
There is Barbapapa, Barbamama, Barbazoo, Barbabeau,
Come with us chez Barbapapa!
Barbabelle and Barbabravo, Barbalib, and Barbabright, and Barbalala!
Come with us chez Barbapapa!
