Play "Sur le pont d'Avignon" on piano with this tutorial!

"Sur le pont d'Avignon" is a French song that dates back to the 15th century! The song tells the story of a bridge, the Pont d'Avignon, on which one dances.

Fun fact: Officially, the famous bridge in Avignon is called "Pont St. Bénézet".

Another fun fact: Although the lyrics talk about dancing ON the bridge (“sur le pont”), the dance actually took place UNDER the bridge (“Sous le pont”).

Here are the lyrics of the Chorus in French, and then the English translation:

Sur le Pont d'AvignonOn y danse, On y danseSur le Pont d'AvignonOn y danse tous en rond On the bridge of AvignonWe all dance there, we all dance thereOn the bridge of AvignonWe all dance there in a ring
