This is a traditional ball bouncing and jump rope chant in French Canada.


This is similar to the English version, Hello, Hello, Hello Sir.

You can hear this recited here.

Game Instructions

Bounce a ball. On each "Monsieur" (Sir) and "Atchoum" (Achoo) bounce the ball under your leg.


The Canadian Encyclopedia includes this chant in its discussion of Traditional Canadian Children's Songs.
