This song was known by all the Paris children who would go to the Guignol puppet shows. Guignol was a famous puppet created in Lyons in the early 1800's. The English equivalent is Punch and Judy.

Notes

*Humps because Punchinello is hunchback.

This song goes back to the French Second Empire (1852 – 1870).
