    Vooly Voo Fransay

    From The Catcher in the Rye:

    "Before she sang the French girl would say, "And now we like to geeve you our impression of Vooly Voo Fransay. Eet ees the story of a leetle Fransh girl who comes to a beeg cccty, just like New York."

    Does "give you our impression of Vooly Voo Fransay" mean "sing this song titled Vooly Voo Fransay"? Is Vooly Voo Fransay English or French?

    Impression could mean rendition: either an interpretation of a musical score or a dramatic piece or a performance of a musical or dramatic work. rendition - definition of rendition by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Vooly Voo Fransay is an English way of spelling the French phrase Voulez-vous Franšais, meaning will you French. Whatever that means ... I don't know, but I could speculate if I had to.

    I've never heard a song by that title, so I am not sure it is a real song or if it's just a title the author made up.
