"That made of excellent French"
Song of G. Van Parys and J. Boyer

In 1939, the traumatism of 1914 - 1918 were still far from being unobtrusive. The Nation did not seem ready to accept to make such a heavy sacrifice and pacifism was the dominant ideology and most consensual. However, this need for peace did not prevent the opinion from becoming aware of the gravity of the situation. The most outstanding example is the made triumphal reception with DALADIER, then president of the council, at the time of its return of Munich. This song mocker and enjouée described well feeling all at the same time fate in the threat and desire of peace, peace.


"The colonel was in finance,
The commander was in industry,
The captain was in the insurance,
And the lieutenant was in the grocer.
The juicy one was usher of the bank of France,
The sergeant was baker and confectioner,
The corporal was in ignorance
And the 2nd class was shareholder.

And all that, that made
Excellent French,
Excellent soldiers,
Who walk to the step.
They did not have of it any more the practice
But it is as the bicycle that is not forgotten.
And all these strapping men,
Who for the majority,
Kids have whom have their certificate of study,
Yes all these good people
Left smartly,
To make just like formerly
That their fathers made for their sons.

The colonel had albumin,
The commander suffered from the large colonist,
The captain had quite bad mine,
And the lieutenant had ganglia.
The juicy one had renal colics,
The sergeant had the atrophied pilor,
The corporal a horn isachronic
And the 2nd class of the corns.

And all that, that made
Excellent French,
Excellent soldiers,
Who walk to the step.
Forgetting in this adventure,
That they were softs, fragile and delicate.
And all these strapping men,
Who for the majority,
Took seals, drops and mixtures,
Quite bearing v' there,
Just like at twenty years.
From which does this miracle come there?
But of the plonk and the tobacco!

The colonel was French Action,
The commander was moderate,
The captain was for the diocese,
And the lieutenant boulottait of the priest.
The juicy one was an enthusiastic extremist,
The sergeant a convinced Socialist,
The corporal, registered on all the lists,
And the 2nd class with the PMU!

And all that, that made
Excellent French,
Excellent soldiers,
Who walk to the step.
By thinking that the Republic,
It is still the best mode here low.
And all these strapping men,
Who for the majority,
Were not of the same opinion in policy,
V' there all of agreement,
Whatever their fate,
They wish all from now on,
That one us foute good once peace!
