Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Roullez!
The song is in the DT, here:  Roulez, Jeunes Gens, Roulez!  though Auxiris' version is different in some places.  It isn't related to  En Roulant Ma Boule,  which is usually known in France as Derrière Chez Nous or Le Canard Blanc.  (There is a short version of that in the DT, here called  V'la l'Bon Vent  ).  In France, Roulez Jeunes Gens is usually called Le Bateau Chargé de Blé; sometimes the ship arrives at Bordeaux, occasionally Nantes, but the outcome is generally much the same.
