“Au clair de la lune”  French lyrics | paroles en français

1. Au clair de la lune,
Mon ami Pierrot,
Prête-moi ta plume
Pour écrire un mot.
Ma chandelle est morte,
Je n’ai plus de feu.
Ouvre-moi ta porte
Pour l’amour de Dieu.

2. Au clair de la lune,
Pierrot répondit :
“Je n’ai pas de plume,
Je suis dans mon lit.
Va chez la voisine,
Je crois qu’elle y est,
Car dans sa cuisine
On bat le briquet.”

3. Au clair de la lune,
L’aimable Lubin;
Frappe chez la brune,
Elle répond soudain :
–Qui frappe de la sorte ?
Il dit à son tour :
–Ouvrez votre porte,
Pour le Dieu d’Amour.

4. Au clair de la lune,
On n’y voit qu’un peu.
On chercha la plume,
On chercha du feu.
En cherchant d’la sorte,
Je n’sais c’qu’on trouva ;
Mais je sais qu’la porte
Sur eux se ferma.

“Au clair de la lune”  Teaching idea & activities

Moving in the range of the 6th (C-A or G-E, depending on the key), this is an appropriate song in order to teach a music instrument like the recorder or the glockenspiel.

Additionally, the form of the song (a – a – b – a) is very simple, so children actually have to learn only two musical phrases.

Make a simple orchestration, with different sounds for every part (e.g. piano and triangle for a, glockenspiel and woodblock for b). Younger children learn to alternate and play on time on their turn.
