La Petite Môme - Poem by Mariam de Haan

La petite môme
La pauvre petite môme
Elle est degoutant
Elle est effrayant

Mais essayez vous
Attendez, attendez
Elle va commmencer
de chanter, oui, chanter

Ecoutes sa voie
Et, ben, voila
Tu dis 'ohlala'
'C'est incroyable ça'

Puis maintenant
Elle n'est pas effrayant
Elle n'est pas degoutant
La petite môme

La belle petite môme

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem after watching La Môme, which is a movie about Edith Piaf. The poem is about how when people saw her she seemed like just a poor little street kid but as soon as she sang all the prejudgements faded away.
Edith Piaf's nickname was La Môme. I strongly recommend both her music and the movie. The movie shows a beautiful story about an incredible woman.
