Alouette lyrics – PDF

print-press-icon

“Alouette” is a francophone children’s song (comptine) first published in 1879 in a song book at Montreal and it is believed that its origin is French-Canadian. Lyrics are about plucking a lark – an act that refers to history rather than to violent intentions: fur traders that were active in North America were using canoes and the song helped them to coordinate the motion of paddles.
