The translation of "Et l'on entend la même chanson, oh !" is "And you hear the same song, oh!". Why is "on" translated as "you"? I thought the translation of "on" is "one" or "we". Thanks!
Rarely would the pronoun 'on' be translated by the posh 'one' in English.
On is a very common or garden pronoun in French and its equivalent in this general statement is the universal you.
Take a look at this lesson for more examples -
On can mean either we/one/people (French Subject Pronouns)
Bonne Continuation !
