On the Bridge of Avignon (Sur le pont d'Avignon) is a traditional French song about a  bridge that originally spanned the Rhône River between Avignon and Villeneuve-lìs-Avignon. The bridge was built beween 1171 and 1185. The song dates from the 15th century.

French Husband took this photo of Chelsea and I dancing on the bridge of Avignon, when Chelsea was three months old.


"Sur le pont d'Avignon,
L'on y danse, l'on y danse.
Sur le pont d'Avignon,
L'on y danse tout en rond."
