In French, each line of this song ends with a letter of the alphabet. The word before the letter ends with the sound of that letter. For example, the first line is "Un jour la troupe campa A A A". The word "campa" ends with the "a" sound, which is the same as the sound you make when you say the letter "A".

Since the English lyrics don't have the same rhyme, we didn't write the letters at the end of each line.
