What's the big deal about a song that tells the tale of a young girl who goes to the candy store for anise flavored lollypops? Maybe more is going on perhaps?
"Les Sucettes" was, on the surface, a pleasant children's song about a girl who likes aniseed-flavoured lollipops. But Gainsbourg's lyric was full of playful double meanings referring to oral sex , which Gall, aged 18, simply did not understand."

Above quote from Wiki
and lastly, a video clip from a 2001 documentary, France Gall tells the story here
An interesting look back to the world of 1966, early sexual revolution.
By today's standards, no way in hell would anyone believe an 18 year old not being "in" on the joke, and not understanding the double meanings.
Or, are parts of the story, still hard to,,, swallow?
