★ History of the Song:

One of the most popular songs from everyone’s childhood and one of the most popular here at Kidsongs is The Alphabet Song (also called “The ABC Song” ). Learning our alphabet by singing the letters has an interesting history and goes back a lot farther than I would have guessed.

Did it originate in the 1950’s? The 1920’s? Try the 1700’s in France! It was first written down by a French composer named Bouin in 1761, although music historians note that this song existed in French culture even earlier than that. It uses the same melody as a French song whose title translates into “Ah, I Would Say to You, Mama”. The pedigree of “The Alphabet Song” also includes the illustrious Wofgang Amadeaus

Mozart himself! Mozart composed several variations of the melody for piano in the 1781 and 1782 titled,

“Twelve Variations on Ah Vous Dirai-Je, Maman”.

Another very famous composer, Franz Joseph Haydn, used the melody, too, in his “Surprise” symphony. In America, “The ABC Song” was first copyrighted in 1835 by music publisher Charles Bradlee who gave credit for the musical arrangement to Louis Le Maire, a French 18th century composer.

Seems like everyone is proud to have their name attached to this simple but memorable melody!
