The King of France
With forty-thousand men
Marched up the hill
And then marched back again.

The King of France
With forty-thousand men,
Gave salute
And then marched back again.

The King of France
With forty-thousand men
Banged their drums
And then marched back again.

The King of France
With forty-thousand men
Blew their horns
And then marched back again.

The King of France
With forty-thousand men
Waved their flags
And then marched back again.

The King of France
With forty-thousand men
All shook hands
And then marched back again.

Formation:

Children form in two rows, facing each other, with a leader appointed for each row. The leaders, in turn, march forward three steps, singing and gesturing the actions noted in the song, after which the two rows march toward each other, repeating what the two leaders have done.
