Ah, ye yaille, la malheureuse.Aye, ye yaille.Madame donnez-moi les, ouais,La petite ou bien la grosse,La petite elle est mignonne,La grosse, elle est si belle.Aye ye yaille, petite.Madame donnez-moi les, ouais,La petite ou bien la grosse à cause,Si j'en ai une,C'est tout que moi je voudrais.Quitte-moi, vous dire,Comment j'veux t'croire,J'en aurais pas une,Ni la petite ni bien la grosse,Falloir dire, ouais madame,Moi j'vas voler la grosse,Vas pas la garde la belle,Ça m'lesse tout seul.Ah, ye yaille, la malheureuse.
Angelas' first session was produced by Brunswick's A&R representative Richard Voynow. A jazz pianist and composer for The Wolverine Orchestra, Voynow dabbled in finding artists for the record label. During a lengthy expedition into the south, he supervised Lejeune, Fruge and McGee's 1929 session with several area musicians from the Opelousas area. By November of 1930, the label held their final session in New Orleans in which Angelas and Ernest were waxing another set of songs to disc. For this recording, "Madame Donnez Moi Les" (#527), Angelas put down his accordion and let his vocals ride along Ernest's fiddle melody. It's one of the few recordings that allow listeners to hear Fruge's fiddling talent dominate and it would be the duo's very last recording ever.
Oh, ye yaille, miserable woman.Oh, ye yaille.Madam, give them to me, yeah,The little one or the big one,The little one, she is cute,The big one, she is so beautiful.Oh, ye yaille, little one.Madam, give them to me, yeah,The little one or the big one because,I have to have one,That's all I want.Leave me, you said,How I wanted to believe you,(Now), I won't get one,Neither the small one nor the big one.Have to say, yeah madam,I'm going to steal the big one,Don't protect the beauty,It hurts me to be alone.Oh, ye yaille, miserable woman.
