Signification of a French-Canadian children's song.

I've tried both google and Wiki, in both English but mostly French, but I can't find what I'm looking for. I'll keep on looking but help would be appreciated.

I'm trying to find some information on a french children song called "Alouette". (Alouette, gentille alouette)

1. Is it a French song or a French-Canadien song? I keep getting conflicted results on this.

2. The thing I truly can't seem to find is the signification or symbolism of the song. It can't really be about torturing a bird can it?

3. And just one specification, this song is public domain, right?

Sorry for the stupid question.

EDIT: Well geez, that sucks. The only info I had found on it's significance told me that it had very deep meaning for the Quebec culture (although it didn't say what, go figure). So does that mean we just like to eat?
