While the German version is correct and also translated right, the French and the English Version of it go differently than the translations.

For instance: the English version is as follows...

Are you sleeping?
Are you sleeping?
Brother John
Brother John
Morning bells are ringing
Morning bells are ringing
Ding, Ding, Dong,
Ding, Ding, Dong

The French Version:

Frère Jacques
Frère Jacques
Dormez-vous?
Dormez-vous?
Sonnez les matines
Sonnez les matines
Din, Din, Don
Din, Din, Don


Thanks for writing Erin!

Listen
Watch
In all the German versions I heard of Frere Jacques on YouTube all the bells seem to say "Ding Dang Dong"...
