Bonjour Guillaume is a circle game. You can learn how to play it below...


Here's a "singable" translation:

Good morning, William,
Was your breakfast good?
Yes indeed, madam,
Pâté was very good,
Pâté made with skylark,
William and Wilma Clark,
Everyone finds their friend,
William's alone again.

Game Instructions

You need an odd number of players to play this game. The children hold hands and form a circle. One child goes in the center, s/he is "William". The children walk around in a circle and sing. At the end of the song, the children hug each other two by two. The one remaining alone is the next "William" and the game starts all over again.


The tune in the mp3 is slightly different from the one in the midi.
