Here's a song (direct link as embedding has been disabled) about life in Quebec a few generations ago compared to now, but the themes in the song aren't really any different than in other parts of North America where the progression from a frontier culture with lots of children to the present situation with much urbanization and a low birth rate occurred in pretty much the same way.
The lyrics for the song in French can be seen here, in a live performance of the song (also embedded below) with Spanish subtitles as well.
