French Kids Song about Springtime

Found a really cute little French song, perfect for springtime!

Les oiseaux tiroulirouli
Les oiseaux tiroulirouli
Les oiseaux font leurs nids dans les branches

Les poissons (pop, pop, pop)
Les poissons (pop, pop, pop)
Les poissons nagent au fond de l’eau oh, oh oh

Here’s an English translation I came up with to loosely fit the tune (that you can hear at the link below):

The birdies go tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet,
The birdies go tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet,
The birds make their nests in the branches.

The fish go pop, pop, pop,
The fish go pop, pop, pop,
Fish swim to the floor of the oh oh ocean!

You can hear a clip of this song online.

Thanks for sharing this song Angela!
