On "Allongeons la jambe"


On "Allongeons la jambe" - (2023)    


A marching song for children, in the manner of so many "countdown" or additive songs which are popular. The theme is treated with a variety of techniques. For the fun of it.


"Ma poul' n'a plus qu' vingt-neuf poussins, / Elle en avait trente. / Allongeons la jambe, / Car la route est longue."  ( My hen has twenty-nine chicks left, / She had thirty of them. / Our pace, let's quicken it, / It's a long way to go. )


3 pages, circa 3' 00" - an MP3 demo is here:
