A cumulative song is one that builds on itself, verse after verse, repeating as it goes along.
- “Frère Jacques” is not a cumulative song. Maybe Greg was thinking about “Alouette”?
- The birds did not like this joke. Can you hear birds peeping and flying by the phone? They did! They might have been worried about the eggs in the nest, but those eggs aren’t real. Ne vous inquiétez pas, les petits oiseaux! (Don’t worry, little birds!)
