Meunier tu dors

Meunier tu dors

This is a gentle French song for young children recorded with lots of repetition and a separate translation track to introduce the vocabulary:
A traditional French nursery rhyme about a windmill with simple actions where children pretend to be the windmill speeding up and slowing down again.

Read the words and join in with the song or go to iTunes where there is also a separate English translation track:

 

 

Can you hear snoring in the background?  It’s the miller!  He needs to wake up and look after his windmill!  If it goes too fast sparks will fly and the windmill could catch fire – watch out!!

The Actions:
Hands on your elbows, start roll arms over and over each other in time to the music.  The music starts slowly and then speeds up when the windmill is going too fast.

Meunier, tu dors:

Meunier, tu dors!
Miller you are sleeping!

Ton moulin, ton moulin
Your windmill, your windmill

va trop vite!
is going too fast!

Meunier, tu dors!
Miller you are sleeping!

Ton moulin, ton moulin
Your windmill, your windmill

va trop fort.
is going too powerfully

Refrain: Repeat x 2
Ton moulin, ton moulin
Your windmill, your windmill

va trop vite!
is going too fast!

Ton moulin, ton moulin
Your windmill, your windmill

va trop fort!  
is going too powerfully

Repeat again.
