This song originated in the Lorraine region.

Notes

*I asked Monique about the meaning of the line, "Mettez vos bras en liance". She wrote: "'Liance' has the same root as 'lier', meaning 'tie, relate, link'. So it must be something like 'link your arms to your neighbors' or 'take your neighbors by the arm'. See the video here - though in this video they're just two people, while it should normally be many people on a circle."
