Program Notes on Jamais on n'a vu by (Anonymous) :

The French folk song Jamais on n'a vu [Never did we see] has been a favorite for generations of French-speaking children!

Its funny lyrics explain that we shall never see a little dog wearing eye-glasses, nor will we see a mouse's tail in a cat's ear!

This popular folk song has a simple A-B-A-C musical form :
  • Phrase A : measures 1-6
  • Phrase B : measures 7-10
  • Phrase A : measures 11-16
  • Phrase C : measures 17-22
This lively and funny folk song is well-suited for beginning violin students.

It is to be played in the first position, on the A and E strings.

It is particularly helpful for developing bowing technique, especially for retakes (lift circles).

Also, this piece can be practiced starting with an up-bow, thus reversing the direction of the retakes.

Jamais on n'a vu

Jamais on n'a vu, vu, vu,
Jamais on ne verra, ra, ra,
Un petit chien porter des lunettes.
Jamais on n'a vu, vu, vu,
Jamais on ne verra, ra, ra,
La queue d'une souris, ris, ris,
Dans l'oreille d'un chat, chat, chat!
