“I feel love, Paris, Paris…..
Love to love, Paris, Paris
Feelings so close to my heart
Barman dans le shaker, d'abord de l'élégance
Un trait de Sacré-Coeur et deux doight de Doisneau
Une Piaf, quelques moineaux et Joséphine Baker
Là une de Prévert, mais sans raton-laveur
Prenons un dernier verre pres Bateau lavoir
Une Sinone de Beauvoir et deux singes en hiver
Last night was made for love..
Oh, baby, just take my frozen hands and hear me say
Don't let me turn to sand and blow away
Though this crowded desert called Paris
I feel love, Paris, Paris
Love to love, Paris, Paris
Feelings so close to my heart”……
