N'Heures Souris Rames (Nursery Rhymes) is a book of homophonic translations from English to French, published in 1980 by Ormonde de Kay.[1] It contains some forty nursery rhymes, among which are Coucou doux de Ledoux (Cock-A-Doodle-Doo), Signe, garçon. Neuf Sikhs se pansent (Sing a Song of Sixpence) and Hâte, carrosse bonzes (Hot Cross Buns).

Below is de Kay's Georgie Porgie in the original English with the translation into French:

Georgie Porgie, Pudding and Pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry.
When the boys came out to play;
Georgie Porgie ran away.
Georgie Port-régie, peu digne en paille,
Qui se dégeule sans mais. Dame craille.
Où haine de bouées ce qu'aime a tout plié:
Georgie Port-régie règne. Ohé.
