King of France

Lyrics

1. The king of France with forty thousand men Marched up the hill and then marched back again.
2. The king of France with forty thousand men Gave salute and then marched back again.
3. …Beat their drums and then marched back again.
4. …Blew their horns and then marched back again.
5. …Waved their flags and then marched back again.
6. …Drew their swords and then marched back again.
7. …Shouldered arms and then marched back again.

Motions

Children stand in two rows facing each other, with a leader for each row. The leaders march forward three steps, singing and gesturing the actions noted in the song. Then the rest of the children in the rows repeat the same motions the leaders had done.
