  1. Yes, we sing it in French to teach the different parts of bird’body… but for pleasure too : children like it because while singing we show these different parts and act like birds !

  2. Hi Joy,

    I have a basic grounding in the French language and have, of course, sung this song many times.

    I had no comprehension of the meaning of the word Alouette, or the rather maudlin meaning of the song. I don’t really know what I thought it meant, but obviously something much more friendly and kindly, as I am left feeling rather saddened after reading your post!

    Thank you so much for a really interesting, informative post.
