Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Mademoiselle from Armentières
Several cleaned-up/ rewritten music-hall versions of "Mlle. from Armentieres" were copyrighted by different composers after the Great War. They're not a much like what the soldiers sang.

I keep finding references to one in which the Mademoiselle slaps a general's face. The slap seems to be an important part of the action. But there's no trace of the lyrics.

Does anybody know them?

I've checked the 'Net: no luck.
