J'aime bien Paris!
Lyrics
Copyright © 2008 Jim Ferrie Music
Taxi disappears from view
5am I've had a few
Looks like I got me another long walk in sight
Caveau des Oubliettes
Jazz was hot, it made me sweat
Notre Dame shines in the cool mornin' light

A reveller makes a play
"Cigarette eh?, s'il te plait"
Lokks at me straight in the eye, says to me

J'aime bien Paris!
Les bateaux sur La Seine
Belles filles Americaines
J'aime bien Paris!
La vielle boulangerie, merci!
J'aime bien Paris!

"Americain?" he siad to me
"Oui, mais j'habite ici"
"Lucky, my friend very day is a blessing,
Better behave 'round Jim Morrison's grave
or ze cops maybe come and zay teach you a lesson"

Walkin', singin' on his way
Piaf and Chevalier
And from the distance, I heard a voice say to me

J'aime bien Paris!
Concorde, Les Invalides
Les flics tellement stupides
J'aime bien Paris!
Saint Germain de Pre, OK
J'aime bien Paris!

Le Metro at Chatelet,
Impressionists, Musee D'Orsay,
Shimmering sunlight reflects off the river
Pretty girls so very much at ease like,
Hepburn at Tiffany's
Strokin' their long hair that goes on forever,

Man, I just can't get enough
Not since I fell in love (with the)
City of Light
Think I'll stay here forever..

J'aime bien Paris!
Le Louvre, La Bastille
Le Jazz, les boites de nuit,
J'aime bien Paris!
La Tour Eiffel, le Saint Michel, le bon cuisine, vins millesimes,
The music scene so good to me - eh, bien!
J'aime bien Paris!
