Boby Lapointe Monday - Ta Katie t'a quitté

Boby Lapointe was the master of the tongue twister...

This is a very cute song about his encounter with a Russian dancing girl...
An interesting snapshot of history - after losing the Russian Civil War in the 1920's, most of the "White" Russians came to Paris where they formed a large community - but as often happens to immigrants, those who used to be refined and important wound up taking jobs as barkeeps and dancing girls.
