Frère Jacques – Are You Sleeping


Frère Jacques, frère Jacques,
Dormez-vous ? Dormez-vous ?
Sonnez 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, dang, dong. Ding, dang, dong.

  1. i tried searching the song “in harmony” everywhere but every site i went to they gave me songs that you play in harmony even this website. Can you please add the song.

    Thanks 🙂

    1. Hi! I am not sure what song you are referring to. If you mean the Disney song “In Harmony” from The Little Mermaid, it is under copyright, which means I cannot legally repost it here. If you do an internet search, you can probably find a site where you can purchase a download of the score. 🙂
