The older generation of southern Vietnamese, on average, are much more educated than the ppl of today. Many are highly fluent in French as a second language, and parents back then often sent their kids to France for furthering their education. There was a lot of brain drain in southern VN after '75. All the rich Chinese also left in the late 70s. The cost for a ticket on one of those large refugee ships, in today's dollar, would amount to something like 30k so it was the wealthy Chinese that left, and you have to be smart to be wealthy.

The French caption is made (for Vietnamese audiences) to show the song lyrics in its original language.
