Les Jeans Bleu

My French, I know,
Is beaucoup bad.
So, please pardonnez.
Mais oui, c’est vrais.

But it is an homage,
(Another French word)
To those trousers blue,
Worn by me and you.

We think of them,
As American, but,
They came from France,
Those indigo pants.

More precisely from,
La Ville de Nîmes.
From whence denim came,
And got its name.

So I’d just like to say,
Merci beaucoup.
Sans jeans I’d be nude,
And I’d hate to be rude.
