MAY 10 (2024), singable satire: more from Julie Andrews -- "JEUX-DE-MOTS, ENCORE"

 PARODY-LYRICS, continuing from our prior blog-post of December 10, 2023.  

ORIGINAL SONG: "Do-Re-Mi" , as performed by Julie Andrews and the entourage of von Trapp family children in the hit musical "The Sound of Music".
PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, September 2014; the medley, in fact, started with two spoofs based on English language homonyms, set to the same original song, developed for a never-performed spectacle entitled "The Sound of Homonyms". The French counterpart, reposted in April 2024, evolved shortly thereafter. And now we have another French-oriented spoof, never before published, to show you.
