Bobinom saintom' is from Les Voix de la Vallée de l'Outaouais (the Voices of the Ottawa Valley), a collection of French-Canadian songs compiled by ethnologist Lucien Ouellet. 

The refrain of Bobinom' saintom' brings together bobin (a spool of thread or bobbin), homme (man), and saint, like the English "saint"  (French Canadian songs are full of offhand religious references, even in a text that is otherwise secular).

This piece is part of Mosaic, the Pearl Shangkuan Choral Series.
