Searching for a recently heard swinging French language kid's song.
October 7, 2013 11:29 AM   Subscribe

I heard a kid's song that I would describe as French swing (a bit like the style of the Triplettes of Belleville). I didn't get a good listen to the lyrics, but two things stood out: a chorus that started with the words "Click, Clack...," and a couple of spoken interludes to someone named Michel(le), who may have been a cat. Can you name this song and artist?

I believe the phrases "C'est beau" and "Belle photo" were also in the chorus. I think there was a bit about a cat in a chair.

Googling leads me to believe there is a French children's rhyme with "Click, Clack" in it, but that is too short to be what I heard.

Best answer: Is it "Clic-Clac Oh C'est Beau!"? Track number 4 here.

Note there is a link to a PDF with all the lyrics on that page.

I was going to recommend "Cric Crack" by The Lovers - and I still am cause it is fun. Here in France I know "Click Clack" mostly as a noun meaning a futon (implying it can be opened in just two operations: click and clack). In the song is describing that same sound - but this time to describe a camera shutter release.
