On the bridge of Avignon ( Sur le Pont dAvignon ) by Emo0Girl On the bridge of Avignon ( Sur le Pont dAvignon ) by Emo0Girl
"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.


Dance description

1. It starts out with everyone in pairs and they dance around each other.
2. Then when the chorus is done stop in front of your partner and the guy (or girl) will bow on the first part then tip their hat on the second.
3. When the chorus begins again repeat step one.
4. When this stops so does the dance and then the girl curtsys to one side then the other.
5. For the FIRST part, repeat step one and then if you have an audience turn on your heel and bow to them.

Chorus

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
We all dance there, we all dance there
On the bridge of Avignon
We all dance there in a ring)

First verse

Les beaux messieurs font comme ça
Et puis encore comme ça.

(Gentlemen go like this (bow)
And then again like this)

Second verse

Les belles dames font comme ça
Et puis encore comme ça.

(The beautiful young ladies go like this (curtsy)
And then like that)

Third verse

Les militaires font comme ça
Et puis encore comme ça

(The soldiers go like this (salute)
And then like that)

Fourth verse

Les musiciens font comme ça
Et puis encore comme ça.

(The musicians go like this (play violin)
And then like that)

Variation
American music publisher Cherry Lane Music Company has printed a different verse (1993):

Les jeunes filles font comme ça
Les jeunes gens font comme ça
The young girls go like this,
The young people go like this.

Świetny pomysł z tym dodawaniem postaci do nut. Podoba mi się rysunek Francji :)

Uznałam, że same nuty będą zbyt nudne dla normalnych ludzi, weselej im będzie patrzeć na coś, czego (może) nie umieją przeczytać, bo jednak nie wszyscy czytają nuty, z obrazkami ulubionych postaci :3
