Au clair de la lune

Maybe you have heard this French folk song.

Au clair de la lune,
mon ami Pierrot,
prête-moi ta plume
pour écrire un mot.
Ma chandell’ est morte;
je n’ai plus de feu.
Ouvre-moi ta porte
pour l’amour de Dieu.

By the light of the moon, the singer asks his friend Pierrot to lend him a pen so that he can write. He also complains that his candle has also gone out. He begs Pierrot to open the door “for the love of God.”
