ALOUETTE's FLYING TOUR traditional French with new lyrics by Brian Barrentine

Alouette, gentille Alouette

Alouette je te plumerai

There's so much to do and see 

In the city of "Pa-ree!"

Come with me To "Pa-ree"

We'll go...



Down the river, floating down the river,

down the river, down the river Seine 


up the tower, up the Eiffel Tower

up the tower, to the very top


on the Metro, riding on the Metro

On the Metro underneath the streets

Are You Sleeping (Frère Jacques)

Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques,
Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous?
Sonnez les matines,

sonnez les matines
Ding ding dong, ding ding dong.

English Version:
Are you sleeping, are you sleeping?
Brother John, Brother John?
Morning bells are ringing, morning bells are ringing
Ding ding dong, ding ding dong.

Jazz Music thrives in Paris and Jazz Musicians sometimes call each other Cats...


by  Brian Barrentine

Swing Cat, Swing Cat, Hey Diddle Diddle

Out on the town, he plays the fiddle

Zing go the strings with a swing cat beat

He snaps his fingers and taps his feet

Then when the horns begin to blow

He jumps and he Jives and says, 

"Go Daddy-O!"

Zouk.Jazz. French.
