Fais dodo (Colas mon p’tit frère)

Children’s song, France-Canada

“Fais Dodo” is a French-Canadian lullaby (comptine). Don’t confuse it with the Cajun (francophone ethnic group mainly living in the state of Louisiana) party dance “fais do-do”.

“Fais dodo” is baby-talk, meaning “go to sleep”, “dodo” coming from the French “dormir”, just like “lolo” for “milk” – from the French “lait”.

Lyrics – French (paroles)

1. Fais dodo, Colas mon p’tit frère
Fais dodo, t’auras du lolo
Maman est en haut
Qui fait du gâteau
Papa est en bas
Qui fait du chocolat
Fais dodo, Colas mon p’tit frère
Fais dodo, t’auras du lolo

2. Fais dodo, Colas mon p’tit frère
Fais dodo, t’auras du lolo
Ta sœur est en haut
Qui fait des chapeaux
Ton frère est en bas
Qui fait des nougats
Fais dodo, Colas mon p’tit frère
Fais dodo, t’auras du lolo

3. Fais dodo, Colas mon p’tit frère
Fais dodo, t’auras du lolo
Ton cousin Gaston
Fait des gros bonbons
Ta cousine Charlotte
Fait de la compote
Fais dodo, Colas mon p’tit frère
Fais dodo, t’auras du lolo

English translation

Go to sleep, Colas my little brother
Go to sleep, you will have your milk
Mummy is upstairs
She’s making you cakes
And Daddy is downstairs
He’s making chocolate
Go to sleep, Colas my little brother
Go to sleep, you will have your milk.
