    Why is that song so comforting? It is now my #1 favorite. Such a wonderful phrase to dream about, "They're coming to take me away". I am so looking forward to nursing home life!

    I remember this! I was about 13y.o. It was popular in Europe too. I sing it to husband when I'm feeling overgfged. Of course you all realize that there was no Napoleon beyond the IIIrd... When I was a kid, the French had something called "the sleeping cure", docs used to give those on the verge of a breakdown some kind of drug that would put them into a coma for a while. When they woke up all their problems were washed away. I WISH!!!

    we had it in Australia, just as I started high school. We used to sing it on the bus and drive the bus driver totally insane with it!
