Une poule sur un mur (a chicken on a wall)

A traditional French children’s song with actions, and an English translation.


Une poule sur un mur,Pliez les coudes, bougez-les de l’extérieur vers l’intérieur
Qui picote du pain durCourbez le dos, hochez la tête
Picoti, picotaHocher la tête de gauche à droite
Lève la queueMettez vos mains sur les fesses et levez-les
Et puis s’en va.Montrez qu’elle est partie



A chicken on a wallFold your elbows and move them outwards and inwards to mimic wings
Who is pecking some hard breadBend over and nod your head
Peck peckNod your head from left to right
Lifts her tailPut your hands on your bottom and lift them to mimic a tail
And then she goes.Point that the chicken has left
