This short (approximately one minute), lively French chanson would be very appropriate for younger male choirs. Melodies are simple and repetitive. Vocal ranges are moderate. This would be a wonderful concert opener, especially with the additional instruments. The English text is not a literal translation of the French. If at all possible, sing the French text included in the score.

Optional consort: two recorders, continuo (cello or synthesizer) and small percussion (hand drum, tambourine, and finger cymbals)

Also available: SATB and Two-part
