I added this because it is an especially tricking idiom. It is interesting because it illustrates that French is a more abstract language than English. It is one of the effects of having peasants/farmers being the chief guardians of the English language for some 330 years (1066-1399), 1066, being the year of the Norman conquest and 1399, being the date the first king, Henry IV, speaking English as a native language, ascended the throne after the conquest.

I wonder if "sing from the same hymnbook" could be a fair translation. Equinox 18:28, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, that would be a fair translation. You should add it.Albertde (talk) 02:12, 18 July 2016 (UTC) On second thought, the problem with expressions like "be on the same page, sing from the same songbook" is that they imply agreement as opposed to understanding.Albertde (talk) 13:02, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
