Watch Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques,
Dormez vous? Dormez vous?
Sonnez Les Matines, sonnez Les Matines,
Ding, dang, dong! Ding, dang, dong!

Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping?
Ring the Matins bell, ring the morning bell,
Ding, dang dong! Ding, dang, dong!
Frère Jacques is a lovely traditional French nursery song sometimes called Are You Sleeping? Its the perfect song to introduce children to their first French words, and has a whole host of additional educational benefits. Ideal for introducing Do Re Mi, a first tune to play on the chime bars or the piano (tutorial here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded and v=d5CYVNrbD9s) or for singing in a round.
