Acadian Lullaby

Acadia was a colony of New France in northeastern North America that included parts of eastern Quebec, the Maritime provinces, and modern-day Maine. (source)


Dors, dors, le petit bibi,
C’est le beau p’tit bibi á maman.
Dors, dors, dors, dors, dors, le bibi á maman.
Demain s’y fait beau j’irons au grandpére;
Dors dors le p’tit bibi.
Dors, dors, dors, dors, dors, dors le bibi á maman.


Sleep, sleep, sleep little baby,
You are mother’s precious little one.
Tomorrow it’s nice; I’ll go to grandfather…

Idea: Also add wind chimes or other sound effects.
