I need help identifying a song I heard this afternoon. Difficulty: in French, and no Google luck.

I was listening to WCBN-FM
online today around 12:15PM EST. A song came on in French; it sounded like a jangly 60s rock song. Repeated lyrics included "depuis que la terre s'est mise à tourner" and "chasse au bonheur"; there were also lines with the terms "toutes les nations", "Charlemagne", "Napoléon", and "guitare[s]."
The song was not on the online playlist of WCBN, which listed the songs immediately before and after that one. I called and spoke to the DJ, who said that that song had been played by the DJ before him, who had already left the studio. Google has not been helpful. Please hope me!
