The origin of the Little Frog song: REVEALED

Posted by | Fun stuff

Thanks so much to Nathalina (and all you others) who took the time to write in after our question about the Swedish Midsummer song “små grodarna”. It turns out the song is actually French. Yes, really: a french miltary song.

Don’t believe us? Have a look below.

The song is called The Onion March. The Brits made a parody of the song and changed some of the lyrics to “Au pas,grenouilles!” (“I takt, små grodor!). Well, we don’t think it needs any more explanation than that, then.
