One interesting thing that I learned during my time in the museum is that the Music of Le Boudin is an an official military marching tune set to the old marching pace. At the time there were no lyrics and although the regular army adapted a faster marching pace the legion (and a few regular regiment)s) kept the same 88 paces per minute. What isn't known is who wrote the lyrics and when it was officially adapted to the music.
