Why do you have the alphabet song?
It has been a useful medium for teaching pre-schoolers, even alphabet soup has been employed to encourage reading skills. In early American school houses six things were essential to be considered an effective teaching environment: A chalkboard, a US and World Map, an Alphabet board in both the print and cursive, with both upper and lower case letters, an American Flag, a good paddle and his and hers outhouses. It helped if the teacher spoke descent English. One teacher and one room was normal for a country school. A swing, a flag pole, a big brass bell, a dictionary on a pedestal, a piano and a cast iron pot bellied stove usually meant that you lived in an affluent community or that the school doubled as a community church or Grange.
I suppose you mean the alphabet song. You can search for "chanson de l'alphabet" to hear it on YouTube or to find the lyrics. The lyrics are fair translations of the English song. It is basically the same song, just adapted to French, so the meaning is the same. There is no "abc" in French, only "alphabet". A book containing a method to learn the alphabet is called an "abécédaire".
Not to my knowledge- the popular (?) Kindergarten alphabet song- A B C does share the same tune as- Bless this House, which my Dad , an opera fan did not immediately connect up- as this song was played by the animal carousel of the Delacorte Clock.

The familiar "alphabet song" was originally copyrighted by Charles Bradlee in 1935, however he only created the lyrics. The tune is the same used for "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," and is originally from a French folk song called "Ah! Vou dirai-je, Maman." Some have mistakenly attributed this song to Mozart because he produced several themes on the original folk song.
In the 1780s, Mozart made the tune of it. (originally for the song he composed, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star") But then 50 years later an American music publisher, Charles Bradlee, put the ABCs to that tune and copyrighted it in 1835. Mozart made the tune of the Alphabet song, (and Twinkle Twinkle and Baa Baa Black Sheep) not the lyrics.
The melody for the alphabet song is based on a French folk tune, "Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman". It is also the melody to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Baa Baa Black Sheep. The lyrics, obviously, are the letters of the alphabet. The song was first copyrighted in 1835 by the Boston-based music publisher Charles Bradlee, and given the title "The A.B.C., a German air with variations for the flute with an easy accompaniment for the…
The best way to learn the alphabet is to use the traditional song with the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." Just keep singing it until you remember all of the letters in order. It also helps to write the letters out in order - writing things down helps you to remember them. Try alphabet memory and match game. Write down all alphabet in different cards and colors.
There is no word that includes all the letters of the alphabet (except in the sesame street song, but the word that Big Bird sings about is the actual alphabet), but you could be looking for a phrase that includes them all. If so, the one that typing classes have used for years goes like this: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
