lyrics

The buses were coming to take us into the night
Where fantasies and fallacies were hatching into life
A scanning pan of the lonely stand, it was just her and I
But as we sat, the words held back
Would fight and they would fly
"Aren't you cold?" I asked of her as both her legs were bare,
And peaking from her overcoat, I struggled not to stare,
But little would she speak in reply,
And of her answers I was denied,

(Je ne comprend pas, monsieur)
I love champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower,
And the saltiness of roasted escargot,
Chasing taxis along the Champs Elysees,
As long as she stayed I'd know,
I'd lie as long as she didn't go

I should have nipped it in the bud,
I should have let it go,
But as the lie began to stand, the beast began to grow,
And shred apart the last of honest gentleman in me,
But what was I to do,
Was I to say,
Was I to see?
All wasn't lost, held her attention in my hand,
And fed her full of tales from many dreams of Southern France,
But little would she speak in reply,
But so much passed between her and I,

(Je ne comprend pas, monsieur)
I love champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower,
And the saltiness of roasted escargot,
Chasing taxis along the Champs Elysees,
As long as she stayed I'd know,
I'd lie as long as she didn't go

I love champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower,
And the saltiness of roasted escargot,
Chasing taxis along the Champs Elysees,
As long as she stayed I'd know,
I'd lie as long as she didn't
Go
She didn't go
She didn't go
She didn't go

On va comprendre ma cherie
