Children’s song, Canada.

“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.

Its lyrics talk about plucking a lark – an act that refers to history rather than to violent intentions: fur traders that were active in North America used canoes and the song helped them to coordinate the motion of paddles.

2. Give to every children an (Orff) instrument and combine every body part with a sound.

If the children are capable of it, define a rhythmic motif (e.g. eight-eight-quarter) at the end of the verse (e.g. “-rai la tête”).

At the end of the song everybody plays on his turn.
