LA BARBICHETTE (The Goatee)

Don’t giggle! This traditional French folksong is a fun musical game that begins with two kids holding each other’s goatees and staring at each other. The first one to laugh loses. Laughter is infectious as the players hold different parts of each other’s faces while trying to coax their partner into a smile or giggle. The song is from Whistlefritz’s CD ALLONS DANSER!

Song “LA BARBICHETTE” from the Whistlefritz CD ALLONS DANSER!

JE TE TIENS, TU ME TIENS
PAR LA BARBICHETTE
LE PREMIER QUI RIRA … 
AURA UNE TAPETTE
UN, DEUX, TROIS, CROISONS LES BRAS
AÏE, AÏE, AÏE, OUILLE, OUILLE, OUILLE !

JE TE TIENS, TU ME TIENS
PAR LE P’TIT BOUT DU NEZ
LE PREMIER QUI RIRA SERA CHATOUILLÉ
UN, DEUX, TROIS, CROISONS LES BRAS
GUILI, GUILI, GUILI !

JE TE TIENS, TU ME TIENS
PAR LES DEUX OREILLES
LE PREMIER QUI RIRA VA TOMBER DE SOMMEIL
UN, DEUX, TROIS, CROISONS LES BRAS
BONNE NUIT !

JE TE TIENS, TU ME TIENS
ON SE TIENT LES DEUX JOUES
LE PREMIER QUI RIRA  . . . 
N’AURA RIEN DU TOUT!
UN, DEUX, TROIS, CROISONS LES BRAS
RIEN DU TOUT ! OUF !

JE TE TIENS, TU ME TIENS
PAR LA POINTE DES CHEVEUX
LE PREMIER QUI RIRA A PERDU LE JEU
UN, DEUX, TROIS, CROISONS LES BRAS
J’AI GAGNÉ !
J’AI PERDU AU JEU DE LA BARBICHETTE

I HOLD YOU, YOU HOLD ME
BY THE GOATEE
THE FIRST TO LAUGH … 
WILL GET A TAP
ONE, TWO, THREE, CROSS THE ARMS
OW, OW, OW, OUCH, OUCH, OUCH!

I HOLD YOU, YOU HOLD ME
BY THE LITTLE TIP OF THE NOSE
THE FIRST TO LAUGH WILL BE TICKLED
ONE, TWO, THREE, CROSS THE ARMS
TICKLE, TICKLE, TICKLE!

I HOLD YOU, YOU HOLD ME
BY THE EARS
THE FIRST TO LAUGH IS GOING TO FALL ASLEEP
ONE, TWO, THREE, CROSS THE ARMS
GOODNIGHT!

I HOLD YOU, YOU HOLD ME
WE HOLD EACH OTHERS TWO CHEEKS
THE FIRST TO LAUGH . . .
NOTHING WILL HAPPEN AT ALL!
ONE, TWO, THREE, CROSS THE ARMS
NOTHING AT ALL! PHEW!

I HOLD YOU, YOU HOLD ME
BY THE TIP OF THE HAIR
THE FIRST TO LAUGH HAS LOST THE GAME
ONE, TWO, THREE, CROSS THE ARMS
I WON!
I LOST AT THE GAME OF LA BARBICHETTE
