    "The Poor People Of Paris" Lyrics

    Les Baxter

    Just got back from Paris, France
    All they do is sing and dance
    All they've got there is romance
    What a tragedy
    Every boulevard has lovers
    Every lover's in a trance
    The poor people of Paree

    I feel sorry for the French
    Every guy has got a wench
    Every couple's got a bench
    Kissing shamelessly

    Night and day they're making music
    While they're making love in French
    The poor people of Paree

    Milk or water from the sink
    Make a true Parisian shrink
    Wine is all he'll ever drink
    And it worries me
    For with wine as cheap as water
    Oh, it makes one stop and think
    The poor people of Paree

    Sister met a boy named Pierre
    Had the craziest affair
    And the day they parted there
    He cried bitterly
    Pierre was there to bid her farewell
    But he brought his new girl, Claire
    The poor people of Paree

    So don't go to Paris, France
    Not unless you like to dance
    Not unless you want romance
    Like those poor inhabitants of Paree
