Lyrics to Frere Jacques

Introduce baby to a second language with this fun and engaging song. Have your child cover her eyes to mimic sleep during the first part of the verse.

Frere Jacques, Frere Jacques,
Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous?
Sonnez les matines, sonnez les matines
Ding deng dong, ding deng dong.

English Version:
Are you sleeping, are you sleeping?
Brother John, Brother John?
Morning bells are ringing, morning bells are ringing
Ding deng dong, ding deng dong.
