      Label Reads French "Will you Dance Grand 'Mother
      Little Carousel "

      That is name of a song it plays and lyrics translated to English . It must have been special gift to a Grandmother :-
      The album Voulez-Vous Danser Grand-Mere by Chantal Goya . Released: 2004 or 2006
      Record label: Universal France.
      Song in English

      Danser Lyrics Grandmother

      Ah, what ceremony,
      For grandpa and grandma,
      The whole family is reunited
      For their diamond wedding.
      The champagne sparkles,
      A sparkle all eyes
      When a little girl,
      Laughed the good old:

      {Chorus}
      Do you want to dance grandmother?
      Would you waltz grandfather?
      Just like the good old days,
      When you were twenty.
      On air that reminds you,
      How life was good.
      For your birthday,
      Do you want to dance grandmother?

      As the joy is immense,
      It plays the piano
      The chorus of a romance,
      Accents sweet and old-fashioned.
      So forgetting their age,
      In remembrance of the past,
      Grandparents are decided
      And hug and dance.

      {Chorus} (x3)
      Do you want to dance grandmother?
      Would you waltz grandfather?
      Just like the good old days,
      When you were twenty.
      On air that reminds you,
      How life was good.
      For your birthday,
      Do you want to dance grandmother?
