SurLePontD'Avignon

Sur le Pont d'Avignon is a French song about the Pont d'Avignon that dates back to the 15th century. The bridge is officially Pont St. Bénézet but it is better known as the Pont d’Avignon on which one dances, as the song says. The Wiggles perform this on Apples and Bananas.

Marie-Michelle Bourgeau returns in this beautiful video in which she dances with Wiggly dancers Caterina Mete and Lauren Hannaford.

Song Lyrics in French and English

Sur le pont d'Avignon,

L'on y danse, l'on y danse.

Sur le pont d'Avignon,

L'on y danse tous en rond.

On the Bridge of Avignon

They're all dancing, they're all dancing

On the Bridge of Avignon

They're all dancing round and round.
