Probably the earliest recording of Allen on record of his career (at least, to my knowledge).

Sur la place
Chacun passe,
Chacun vient, chacun va;
Drôles de gens que ces gens-là.
Drôles de gens! Drôles de gens!

A la porte du corps de garde,
Pour tuer le temps,
On fume, on jase, l'on regarde
Passer les passants.

CHOIR
On the square
Everyone passes,
Everyone comes, everyone goes;
Funny people than those people.
Funny people! Funny people!

At the gate of the guardhouse,
To kill time,
We smoke, we talk, we look
Pass passersby.
In the square, etc.
