Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques,
Dormez vous? Dormez vous?
Sonnes les matines, sonnez les matines,
Ding, dang, dong. Ding, dang, dong.

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

  • In other versions such as Raffi's version, it's "Ding, ding, dong", or "Ding, dang, dong" etc., but in this version such as The Wiggles version, it's "Ding, dong, ding".
