Rounds Resounding Day (Beginners)
August 1

Rounds For Singers Just Starting Out

August 1st was designated Rounds Resounding Day to encourage people to join with others in song. We learn to sing rounds when we’re little kids with such tunes as "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," "Frere Jacques," and "Hey Ho Nobody’s Home." To help you sing rounds with your favorite friends, we’ve put the words to some of our favorite rounds below. Have fun!

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream

Make New Friends
Make new friends but keep the old
One is silver and the other gold

Frere Jacques
French
Frere Jacques, Frere Jacques
Dormez vous? Dormez vous?
Sonnes les matines, sonnez les matines,
Din, din, don. Din, din, don.

Frere Jacques- Are You Sleeping Brother John?
English
Are you sleeping, are you sleeping?
Brother John, Brother John,
Morning bells are ringing, morning bells are ringing
Ding Ding Dong, Ding Ding Dong.

Hey Ho Nobody’s Home
Hey ho nobody's home
Meat nor drink nor money have I none
Yet I will be merry
End: Hey, nobody’s home

Here’s a midi version of this tune, in case you’re unfamiliar with it.
