Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Mademoiselle from Armentières
I found this children's rhyme in St. Johns only a couple of years back:

The Yankees say they won the war, parley-voo!
The Yankees say they won the war, parley-voo!
The Yankees say they won the war,
The Newfies won it the day before.
Inky dinky parley-voo!

The Yankees had to scrub the floor, parley-voo!
The Yankees had to scrub the floor, parley-voo!
The Yankees had to scrub the floor,
The Newfies marched right out the door.
Inky dinky parley-voo!
