Sur le plancher une araignée - French Children's Songs - France - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Notes

*"Culotte" meaning "trousers, pants or shorter breeches" is no longer in use. Nowadays, it only means girls' and women's underwear, which makes the children giggle.

**Literally "Angelus" - which is a prayer said at morning, noon and night by Roman Catholics. A bell was traditionally rung at 6 am, noon and 6 pm to remind people to say this prayer. The bell rung was also called the "Angelus".
