There was a song that played in French in Montreal called Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues by Chantal Renaud

music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxUGQOSuVhY

Lyrics (en Français)

Donne-moi, deux Michigans Red Hot
pis un gros sac de pinottes
Un cornet de crème en glace
eille dépêche toi la vue commence !

Lève donc ta vitre les bébittes* rentrent
Oui mais faut ben que la fumée sorte
Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues
Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues

Bebé, passe moi donc l'sac de chips,
pis mets du vinaigre* mon pit
Mais jette donc ta grosse gomme* dehors,
à place d'la jeter dans l'cendrier !

Viens donc te tasser* à côté de moé
Ma tout est traduit en français
C'est un film d'action, j'l'ai déjà vu

Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues
Plattsburgh Drive-in Blues (bis)
