Alouette(Mimi'sDance)

Alouette is a popular French Canadian children's song originating in France about plucking the feathers, eyes, and beak from a lark, in retribution for being woken up by her song. Although it is in French, it is well-known among speakers of other languages; in this respect it is similar to "Frere Jacques". Many American doughboys and other Allied soldiers learned the song while serving in France during World War I and brought it home with them, passing it on to their children and grandchildren and later a version with lyrics appeared in the Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle TV Series in 2017.

The Wiggles and their friend [Mimi] dance to this song in their new-line up DVD debut: "Taking Off!".
