The Poor People of Paris Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Just got back from Paris France
All they do is sing and dance
All they got is romance
What a tragedy
Verse 2
Every boulevard has lovers
Every lover's in a trance
The poor people of Paris
I feel sorry for the French
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
The poor people of Paris
Milk or water from a sink
Make a true Parisian shrink
Wine is all he'll ever drink
Verse 5
And it worries me
For with wine as cheap as water
Oh it makes one stop and think
The poor people of Paris
Verse 6
Sister Madam Pierre
Had the craziest love affair
And the day after they parted there
He cries bitterly
Verse 7
Pierre was there to bid her farewell
But he brought his new girl Claire
The poor people of Paris
So don't go to Paris France
Verse 8
Not unless you like to dance
Not unless you want romance
Like those poor inhabitants of Paris
Verse 9
In the meantime, I got to hurry back there
I think I forgot something...
