French term or phrase: A Tout Le Mond
It's the Name of a song and I was wondering what it meant
Lance Mudd
To everyone
Explanation:
The word for word translation is "to the whole world", as my colleague has already proposed. But, depending on the context of the song, it might just as well mean "to everyone". That's what it means in everyday language, anyway.
