While visiting Orlando – that seems a lifetime ago – I sang this song with Sheila. I mentioned that I didn’t know the original version of the song, but that a French version existed when I was a young kid and got all kinds of puzzled expressions from fellow American bloggers.
I now present to you the French version of Knock Three Times, called Trois P’tits Coups. Please note that this is not the original French signer, but he does a pretty good job and it’s the only version available on YouTube.
I totally expect you guys to learn this version, and next time we meet, we’ll sing it. Preferably after a few drinks. 😉
Frenchising songs used to be a common thing in the province of Quebec. Many artists had their big break reprising / translating an American hit.
