    Always with me

    I find myself humming this song often. It’s always with me, and now I hope it can be in your head too.

    Not only that, you now should have a firm grasp of the lyrics, so when it pops into your head you can sing away the verses, not just the chorus.

    Remember the grammar you ran into in the verses and the chorus. Great stuff hidden in these kids songs, that’s why I’m going to come back to them from time to time.

    J’ai neuf marionnette
    Que j’ai reçues pour ma fête
    J’ai dix petits doigts
    Qui sont toujours avec moi
    J’ai onze petites fleurs
    Pour offrir à ma petite (p’tite) soeur
    J’ai douze belles images
    Que j’ai eues quand j’étais sage
    Un deux trois quatre
    Cinq six sept huit
    Neuf dix onze douze
    Je sais compter jusqu’à douze
    Je sais compter jusqu’à douze
    Et pour compter jusqu’à vingt
    Je continuerai demain
    Et pour compter jusqu’à vingt
    Je continuerai demain

    I have nine puppets
    That I got for my party
    I have ten little fingers
    That are always with me
    I have eleven little flowers
    To give to my little sister
    I have twelve beautiful pictures
    That I had when I was good
    One two three four
    Five six seven eight
    Nine ten eleven twelve
    I can count to twelve
    I can count to twelve
    And to count to twenty
    I’ll continue tomorrow
    And to count to twenty
    I will continue tomorrow
