"La Laine Des Moutons" is a beautiful "zipper" song that kids love:

La laine des moutons
C'est nous qui la tondaine
La laine des moutons
C'est nous qui la tondons
Tondons, tondaine
La laine des moutaines
Tondons, tondaine
La laine des moutons

lavaine/lavons
cardaine/cardons
filaine/filons
portaine/portons
chantaine/chantons


Translation: The wool of the sheep, it is we who shear it, wash it, card it, spin it, wear it, and sing about it.

It's a bourrée from the Auvergne/Limousin region. You can find other verses such as "peignaine-peignons" (comb), "teignaine-teignons" (dye), "tissaine-tissons" (weave), "reprisaine-reprisons" (mend), "jetaine-jetons" (throw away) -from Diapason Turquoise 2, les Presses d'Île de France, 2004.
I learned the 2nd part as "Tondons, tondons, la laine la laine, tondons, tondons, la laine des moutons."

I love this song. We recorded it back in the 90s.
Listen here.
