What is the song "Alouette" about?

: Alouette

: NatalieDee's friend Amy runs a company called Little Alouette that makes wooden teething rings. My mom taught me that French song "Alouette" when I was a little chil'. Here is Jordan Catalano singing it, wtf:
Answer: It's about a little bird! Lyrics:
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Skylark, nice skylark
Alouette, je te plumerai
Skylark, I shall pluck you
Je te plumerai la tête (x2)
I shall pluck your head
Et la tête (x2)
And your head
Alouette, gentille Alouette
Alouette, je te plumerai
And then on the next verse, instead of plucking his head, you'll pluck his beak:
Je te plumerai le bec (x2)
I shall pluck your beak
Et la tête (x2)
And your head
And then his neck:
Je te plumerai le cou (x2)
I shall pluck your neck
Et le bec (x2)
And your beak
Et la tête (x2)
And your head
And so on. This is a good way to learn basic anatomy words in French if you are a bird:
  • le dos - your back
  • les ailes - your wings
  • les pattes - your feet
  • la queue - your tail

The More You Know: I tried to teach Sadie "Head Shoulders Knees & Toes" in Japanese, but it didn't pan out so well, maybe because she didn't know it in English just yet. But in case you already know the tune, are ready to learn, and want to impress your friends with something any Japanese toddler can do, I have drawn you some instructive diagrams:
In between each one, say to (like "toe") which means "and."
