Tune of the Day: Alouette

Traditional Canadian folk song

This popular Canadian children's song is about plucking the feathers off a skylark, a small bird. It originated with the French Canadian fur trade.

Although it is in French, it is well-known among speakers of other languages. Many American soldiers learned the song while serving in France during World War I and brought it home with them.
