Stella Ella Ola” is a clapping game where players stand or sit in a circle placing one hand over her or his neighbour’s closer hand and sing the song. On every beat, a person claps their higher hand onto the touching person’s palm.
The cycle continues until the song ends at which point if the person’s hand is slapped, they are considered “out” and must stand or sit in the center of the circle.

Alouette” is a popular French-Canadian children’s song, commonly thought to be about plucking the feathers from a lark, in retribution for being woken up by its song.
Its origin is uncertain, though the most popular theory is that it is French-Canadian. The Canadian theory is based on the French fur trade that was active for over 300 years in North America. Canoes were used to transport trade goods in exchange for furs through established expansive trade routes consisting of interconnecting lakes, and rivers, and portages in the hinterland of present-day Canada and United States. The songs of the French fur trade were adapted to accompany the motion of paddles dipped in unison.
Singing helped to pass the time and made the work seem lighter. Alouette has become a symbol of French Canada for the world, an unofficial national song. Today, the song is used to teach French- and English-speaking children in Canada, and others learning French around the world, the names of body parts. Singers will point to or touch the part of their body that corresponds to the word being sung in the song. The lark was eaten in Europe, and when eaten was known as a “mauviette”, which is also a term for a sickly person. Alouette” usually involves audience participation, with the audience echoing every line of each verse after the verse’s second line. Below are the original French lyrics along with a literal English translation.
As the translation does not match well with the meter of the song, a slightly less literal, yet more singable version is included. Little skylark, I’ll pluck your feathers off. I’ll pluck the feathers off your head. I’ll pluck the feathers off your beak. I’ll pluck the feathers off your eyes. I’ll pluck the feathers off your neck.
