1. Prom’nons-nous dans les bois
Pendant que le loup n’y est pas
Si le loup y était
Il nous mangerait,
Mais comme il n’y est pas
Il nous mang’ra pas.

1. Let’s stroll into the woods
While the wolf is not around.
If the wolf was here
He would eat us all,
Now that he’s not here
He won’t eat at all.

Do you hear? (Do you hear?)
What are you doing?” (What are you doing?)
(Wolf: “I’m putting on my shirt!”)

While the wolf is not around.
If the wolf was here
He would eat us all,
Now that he’s not here

Do you hear? (Do you hear?)
What are you doing?” (What are you doing?)
(Wolf: “I’m putting on my pants!”)

Promenons-nous dans les bois (Loup, y es-tu?) – Game (early ages)

We designate a location close to the place where the wolf is hiding (often a tree or wall, the important thing is not to be seen by the Walkers, although they know the hiding place).

The Walkers (all other players) stand scattered, move and sing the start of the nursery rhyme. Then, the wolf replies “I put on my (choose a piece of clothing)”, and the walkers resume the rhyme. The wolf comes out when he wants from his hiding place, necessarily immediately after the questions in the lyrics (“Are you here?”), saying “Here I am!… Here I am!…”.

The suspense lies in the fact that he may go out after the first piece of clothing, as well as after the seventh. Once discovered, the wolf tries to catch the walkers. Once you get caught, you are out of the game.
The Walkers can take refuge outside the woods that was defined at the beginning of the game. While the rhyme is sung, all the walkers must be into the woods.

The winner is the last free walker. In case there isn’t any walker left, we play for fun or there are times where the wolf catches and those where the walker escapes (the one with the highest score is the winner).
