French Christmas Song with MP3 Recording

Here’s a French Christmas song that’s sung by children.

MP3 of J’entends à notre porte

J’entends à notre porte

J’entends à notre porte
Frapper trois petits coups
C’est Noël qui apporte
Des bonbons des joujoux
Par les chemins de neige
Il a marché longtemps
Dans un joyeux cortège
De beaux papillons blancs.

I Hear Someone at Our Door
(Singable English Translation)

I hear someone at our door
Softly knocking three times
It is Santa who’s bringing
Sweets and toys from the sky.
Along the roads full of snow
He has walked a long time
In a joyful procession
Of nice white butterflies.

The melody of this song is from Away in the Manger, a song that has two different tunes. This melody is the one that’s lesser known.

Check out the song page of J’entends à notre porte for the score, midi, literal translation and a Spanish translation.

Many thanks to Edit’ Dupont for contributing and singing this song for Mama Lisa’s World and to Monique Palomares of Mama Lisa’s World en français for the English translation!

Merry Christmas!

Mama Lisa
