The Last Time I Saw Paris Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
A lady known as Paris, Romantic and Charming
Has left her old companions and faded from view
Verse 2
Lonely men with lonely eyes are seeking her in vain
Her streets are where they were, but there's no sign of her
Verse 3
She has left the Seine
Verse 4
The last time I saw Paris, her heart was warm and gay,
I heard the laughter of her heart in every street caf‚
Verse 5
The last time I saw Paris, her trees were dressed for spring,
And lovers walked beneath those trees and birds found songs to sing.
Verse 6
I dodged the same old taxicabs that I had dodged for years.
The chorus of their squeaky horns was music to my ears.
Verse 7
The last time I saw Paris, her heart was warm and gay,
No matter how they change her, I'll remember her that way.
Verse 8
I'll think of happy hours, and people who shared them
Old women, selling flowers, in markets at dawn
Verse 9
Children who applauded, Punch and Judy in the park
And those who danced at night and kept our Paris bright
Verse 10
'til the town went dark.
