Children’s Song, France.

“Frère Jacques (Are You Sleeping?)” is one of the most famous children’s songs (comptines). Frère Jacques (Brother Jacob), was probably a real person, a monk of the 17th century. The monk should wake up and sound the bells for the “matines” (monastic services), but, obviously, he oversleeps and the song calls him to wake up.
