Compère Guilleri - French Children's Songs - France - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


*These are meaningless words.
**The song has this as "mouri" and "couri", instead of "mourir" and "courir".
***The song has this as "tombit" and "embrassit" instead of "tomba" and "embrassa", to keep the rhyme.



Many thanks to Tiphaine Woerth for recording this song for Mama Lisa's World!
