    I learned this song when I was a little boy, living in Paris, France. I've loved it ever since. This is a fresh, fun arrangement with enough variation of tempo and harmony to make it interesting. The accompaniment can be challenging to one who is less experienced, especially since...

    it is conducted in one beat per measure. However, the accompaniment is well thought out and well written. The french and english words are in the music, along with a very handy pronunciation guide. (It helps to have someone who speaks french in the choir to assist others with accurate pronunciation.) It's a fun piece to perform and very fun to direct.
