The article in question is referring to the theme of the Smurfs cartoon show and not to the Father Abraham song called "The Smurf Song".

The Smurf song (also known as the Smurfs theme song or the La La Song, its in-universe reference in The Smurfs 2) is the general tune that a Smurf sings, as a sort of signature tune that identifies the singer as being a Smurf. It is usually sung when a Smurf is happy. Other beings such as humans sometimes may find the Smurf song truly annoying to listen to. At least Grouchy Smurf admits to it in the 2011 Smurfs movie.

The Smurf song was developed by Hanna-Barbera for use in the Smurfs cartoon show, and is also used in other forms of Smurf media such as videogames. In comic books, it appears rather noticeably in "Bathing Smurfs" as the words are superimposed on a musical scale in the same arrangement as the music. It currently appears in The Smurfs movie in various forms such as a remix using Aerosmith/Run D.M.C.'s "Walk This Way".

In non-American markets, the Smurf song in the introduction sequence would be replaced by one of two alternate theme songs, though the basic Smurf song would be retained in the episodes' soundtrack.

The Season 2 intro sequence features the following as the lyrics to the Smurf song:

Smurfs: (sung in unison) La la la-la la la, Sing a happy song. La la la-la la la, Smurf the whole day long.
Papa Smurf: ('La la la-la la la' part is whistled) Smurf along with me! ('La la la-la la la' part is whistled) Simple as can be.
Smurfs: (sung in unison) Next time you're feeling blue just let a smile begin (Grouchy Smurf says, "I hate smiles!"); Happy things will come to you...
Smurfette: So smurf yourself a grin!
(Ominous Gargamel-themed music used for the bridge)
Gargamel: (spoken) Oooooo I hate Smurfs! (Azrael meows) I'll get you, I'll get all of you if it's the last thing I ever do! Hee hee hee hee ha ha ha ha!
(Normal theme music resumes)
Smurfs: (sung in unison) La la la-la la la, Now you know the tune,...
(Harmony Smurf plays the "la la la-la la la" tune, just barely, on his off-key trumpet, until the hand of an unseen smurf shoves a potato in his trumpet)
Smurfs: (sung in unison, accentuated for the finale) You'll be Smurfing soon!

The lyrics are also used in the 2011 Smurfs movie and in a dance version of the song in the playlist of The Smurfs Dance Party.

In the soundtrack version, Grouchy's "I hate smiles" is not heard, while in the TV version, Gargamel only says "Oooooo I hate Smurfs!" and Azrael doesn't meow.
