Knees Up Mother Brown (sometimes titled as "There Came A Girl From France") is a song about a girl who came from France who didn't know how to dance.

Lyrics[]

There came a girl from France
Who didn't know how to dance
The only thing that she could do was
Knees up Mother Brown

Oh, knees up Mother Brown
Knees up Mother Brown
Knees up, knees up, never let the breeze up,
Knees up Mother Brown

Oh, hopping on one foot
Hopping on one foot
Hopping, hopping, never stopping
Hopping on one foot

Oh, knees up Mother Brown
Knees up Mother Brown
Knees up, knees up, never let the breeze up,
Knees up Mother Brown

Oh, hopping on the other
Hopping on the other
Hopping, hopping, never stopping
Hopping on the other

Oh, knees up Mother Brown
Knees up Mother Brown
Knees up, knees up, never let the breeze up,
Knees up Mother Brown

And whirling round and round
Whirling round and round
Whirling, whirling, never twirling
Whirling round and round

There came a girl from France
Who didn't know how to dance
The only thing that she could do was
Knees up Mother Brown
