    Lyrics

    Twilight turns from amethyst
    To deep and deeper blue
    We've got an hour or two
    Before it's time to go
    Let's go see a movie show

    Jeanne can't choose
    Between the two
    'Cause Jules is hip
    And Jim is cool

    And so they live together
    With the trees and birds
    And little girls
    Who play upon

    Poor Jean-Claude's nerves
    Till finally
    He strokes Claire's knee
    And when she asks

    Of his ambition
    Jean-Pierre replies
    "My mission
    Is to become eternal

    And to die..."
    Heaven knows the reason why...

    When the lights go out
    All over Europe

    I forget about old Hollywood,
    'Cause Doris Day could never
    Make me cheer up
    Quite the way those French girls always could

    [French Verses]

    When the lights go out
    All over Europe
    I forget about old MGM
    'Cause Paramount

    Was never Universal
    And Warners went out
    Way back when
    Those lights go out

    All over Europe
    I forget about old Hollywood,
    'Cause Doris Day could never
    Make me cheer up

    Quite the way those French girls
    Always could.
