If you’re wondering the streets or home watching TV Feeling bored, undecided, full of melancholy Grab your coat, get your hat, turn that sadness to glee Come and join our French party at the mighty Wheaty You won’t hear a bar of Lennon or McCartney But your hearts will be filled with a French melody We will step back in history, remembering things past All things French should I say, as it is Bastille Day When the French all rose up, kicked the crown, let him down Wasn’t fun for King Louis, but we’ll have a blast!
