FATHER UBU By my green candle, I do not understand.
MOTHER UBU How, Pere Ubu, “you are happy with your lot?
FATHER UBU By my green candle, shit, ma'am, yes indeed, I'm happy. It would be at least: a captain of dragoons, trusted officer of King Wenceslas, decorated with the Order of the Red Eagle of Poland and former King of Aragon, what would you be better?
MOTHER UBU What! After the King of Aragon you just carry journals fifty footmen armed with cutting-cabbage, when you could succeed on your flask crown of Poland to that of Aragon?
FATHER UBU Ah Ubu, I do not understand what you say.
TURD MOTHER You're so stupid!
FATHER UBU By my green candle, King Wenceslas is still alive, and even if he dies, he did not have legions of children?

You flatter yourself if you're still alive and if you walk more snow in Lithuania, you owe it to the virtue of magnanimity Master of Finance, who tried repeatedly, spine and hoarse to spout his prayers for your salvation, and who has handled with as much courage the spiritual sword of prayer that you handled with skill by the time of this Palotin Coccyx knuckle-fist explosive. We have even gone further our commitment, because we did not hesitate to climb on a rock high above so that our prayers have less distance to get to heaven. CELL Disgusting ass.
FATHER UBU Here is a big beast. With me, you have something for supper. What stomach, gentlemen! The Greeks were more confident in the wooden horse, and little was damned, dear friends, we could not go check for ourselves our domestic capacity. CELL I'm starving. What to eat? COTISE Bear!

It has nothing impossible. CELL Forget to dinner. COTISE No, we have to talk about something more important. I think it would be good to inquire into the veracity of the news. CELL It is true, should abandon the Ubu or stay with him? COTISE The night brings counsel. Sleep, we'll see tomorrow what to do. CELL No, it is better to enjoy the night to get away.

MOTHER UBU Finally, I am safe. I am alone here, this is not bad, but what rat race: crossing the whole of Poland in four days! all misfortunes beset me at once. As soon as this big ass party, I go to the crypt rich. Soon after I escaped being stoned by Buggerlaus and these madmen. I lose my rider Champion Gyron who was so enamored by my beauty that swooned with delight when she saw me, and even, I was assured by not seeing me, what is the height of tenderness . It would cut in half for me, poor boy. The proof is that he was cut in four by Buggerlaus. Pif paf bang! Ah I think die. So then, I take flight, pursued by the mob fury. I left the palace, I come to the Vistula, the bridges were guarded. I crossed the river to swim, hoping to leave my persecutors. From all sides come together and nobility haunts me. Missing me die a thousand times, drowned in a circle of Poles eager to lose me. Finally I mistook their fury, and after four days of racing in the snow that was my kingdom I manage to take refuge here. I have eaten or drunk these four days. Buggerlaus hugged me closely … Finally, I am saved. Ah I'm dead tired and cold. But I wonder what happened to my big clown, I mean my very respectable husband. Him have I taken, finance. Him have I robbed of krones. Him have I fired, carrots. And to finance his horse dying of hunger: he did not often oats, the poor devil. Ah good story. But alas! I lost my treasure! It is in Warsaw, which will pick pleases. FATHER UBU beginning to wake up. Get Ubu, cut earens!
MOTHER UBU Ah God Where am I? I lose my head. Ah No, Lord! Thank God I caught Mr. Pere Ubu who sleeps with me. Let's nice. Well, my big man, did you sleep well?
FATHER UBU Badly! It was very hard this bear! Battle of voracious against a very strong, but the greedy completely eaten and devoured the tough, as you will see when it's light, hear you, noble Palotina!
MOTHER UBU What he stammers? It is even more stupid than when he left. Who has he?
FATHER UBU Coccyx, Battery, answer me, shit bag! Where are you? Ah I'm afraid. But after we talked. Who spoke? This is not the bear, I suppose. Shit! Where are my matches? Ah I've lost the battle. MOTHER UBU apart. Take advantage of the situation and night, simulate a supernatural appearance and make her promise to forgive our thefts.
FATHER UBU But, by St. Anthony! speaking. Jambedieu! I'll be hanged! MOTHER UBU raising her voice. Yes, Mr. Turd, speaks, indeed, and the trumpet of the archangel who must make the dead ash and dust the final do not speak otherwise! Listen to his voice stern. Is that of St. Gabriel can only give good advice.
FATHER UBU Oh that, indeed!
MOTHER UBU Do not interrupt me or I am silent and that will be done your giborgne!
FATHER UBU Ah my gidouille! I am silent, I do not say another word. Go on, madame Apparition!
MOTHER UBU We said, Mr. Turd, you're a big man!
FATHER UBU Very big, in fact, this is just.
MOTHER UBU Hush you, by God!
FATHER UBU Oh Angels do not swear! MOTHER UBU apart. Shit! Continuing. Are you married, Mr. Turd.
FATHER UBU Ideally, the last of the chips!
MOTHER UBU You mean it's a charming woman.
FATHER UBU A horror. She has claws everywhere, no one knows where to take it.
MOTHER UBU It must be taken by the sweetness, Sire Ubu, and if you take it and you will see that it is at least the equal of the Venus of Capua.
FATHER UBU Who do you say that lice?
MOTHER UBU You do not listen, Mr. Turd, lend us a little more carefully. Apart. But let us, the day will rise. Mr. Turd, your wife is adorable and delicious, it was not a single fault.
FATHER UBU You are mistaken, there is not a defect it possesses.
MOTHER UBU Silence! Your wife does not make you of infidelity!
FATHER UBU I'd like to see who could be in love with her. Is a harpy!
MOTHER UBU She does not drink!
FATHER UBU Since I took the key of the cellar. Prior to seven o'clock in the morning it was round and it is perfumed with eau-de-vie. Now it is perfumed with heliotrope she does not feel worse. I do not care. But now there is more than me to be round!
MOTHER UBU Sot character! - Your wife do not take your gold.
FATHER UBU No, it's funny!
MOTHER UBU It does not divert a penny!
FATHER UBU Mr. Witness our noble and unfortunate Phynances horse, which, not being fed for three months, had to make the entire campaign dragged by the strap through Ukraine. So did he die at the task, the poor beast!
MOTHER UBU All these are lies, your wife is a model and you know what monster you are!
FATHER UBU All these are truths. My wife is a slut and you know what you dummy!
MOTHER UBU Take care, Ubu.
FATHER UBU Ah it's true, I forgot who I was talking. No, I did not say that!
MOTHER UBU You killed Wenceslas.
FATHER UBU This is not my fault, of course. The Mother Turd wanted.
MOTHER UBU You killed Boleslaw and Ladislas.
FATHER UBU Too bad for them! They wanted me to type!
MOTHER UBU You have not kept your promise to Borders and later you killed.
FATHER UBU I'd rather be me than he who reigns in Lithuania. For now it is neither one nor the other. So you see, it is not me.
MOTHER UBU You have a way to make you forgive all your sins.
FATHER UBU Which? I am willing to become a holy man, I want to be bishop and see my name on the calendar.
MOTHER UBU You must forgive the Ubu of stealing some money.
FATHER UBU Well, voila! I forgive him when she will have me made whole, it has been well thrashed and it has revived my horse finance.
MOTHER UBU He is crazy about his horse! Ah I am lost, the sun rises.
FATHER UBU But anyway, I'm certainly glad to know now that my dear wife I flew. I now know from reliable sources. Omnis a Deo scientia, which mean: omnis, all; a Deo, science, scientia, from God. That explains the phenomenon. But Madame Apparition said nothing. What can I offer her something to cheer. What she said was very amusing. Oh, but it's day! Ah Lord, from my horse to finance, it's Ubu! MOTHER UBU brazenly. It is not true, I will excommunicate.
FATHER UBU Ah carrion!
MOTHER UBU What impiety.
FATHER UBU Ah is too much. I see it's you, stupid bitch! Why the hell are you here?
MOTHER UBU Giron died and the Poles drove me away.
FATHER UBU And me, it was the Russians who have hunted: the great minds meet.
MOTHER UBU Say that met wit an ass!
FATHER UBU Ah Well, he will meet a waterfowl now. He throws the bear. MOTHER UBU falling crushed under the weight of the bear. Ah Great God! How awful! Ah I'm dying! I'm suffocating! I died! He eat me! I digest!
FATHER UBU He's dead! grotesque. Oh but, in fact, maybe not! Ah Lord not, he is not dead, save us. Dating back on his rock. … Our Father who art MOTHER UBU discarding. Hey! where is he?
FATHER UBU Ah Lord here it is again! Foolish creature, so there is no way to get rid of it. Is he dead, the bear?
MOTHER UBU Yes, stupid ass, it is already cold. How did he come here? FATHER UBU confused. I do not know. Ah yes, I know! He wanted to eat and battery Coccyx and I killed him with a blow of Pater Noster.
MOTHER UBU Pile, Coccyx, Pater Noster. What's that? It is crazy, my finances!
FATHER UBU That is very true what I say! And you're an idiot, my giborgne!
MOTHER UBU Tell me about your campaign, Ubu.
FATHER UBU Oh lady, no! It's too long. All I know is that despite my undeniable valor everybody beat me.
MOTHER UBU Why, even the Polish?
FATHER UBU They shouted “Long live Wenceslas Buggerlaus. I thought they wanted m'écarteler. Oh enrages! And then they killed Rensky!
MOTHER UBU It is much the same! You know Buggerlaus killed Champion Gyron!
FATHER UBU It is much the same! And then they killed the poor Lacy!
MOTHER UBU It is much the same!
FATHER UBU Oh but still, come here, carrion! Get on your knees before your master, he grabs her and throws her knees, you'll suffer the punishment.
MOTHER UBU Ho, ho, Mr. Turd!
FATHER UBU Oh oh oh after you finished? I begin: twisted nose, pull hair, penetration of the small stick in earens, extracting the brain through the heels, tearing the posterior, partial or total removal of the spinal cord (if only it was him remove the thorns of the character), not to mention the opening of the bladder and finally renewed the great beheading John the Baptist, all drawn from the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, put in order, corrected and perfected by the Master of Finance here this!
