"Cyrano de Berger's Back" as written by and John Doe....
I got a couple words to say
For all you strong and silent types
Who don't talk to the girls they want to love
Though it means your life
I'll say this
next time you get stuck
And the words don't come
"Your eyes are blue as the coals that burn
In your black corsage"

I'll talk for you
Under the balcony in blue
I'll talk for you
I'll talk for you
'Cause Cyrano de Berger's back
Cyrano de Berger's back

I'm gonna listen carefully
To what our Roxanne is gonna say
And though I lover her 20 times more
I would never say
"I should be the rouge and color in your cheeks"
Instead I'll just make you look good
And be so discreet

I got ten arms for you
Ten hearts are beating true
This ain't a lie
This ain't behind
Cyrano de Berger's back

I got ten arms for you
Ten hearts are beating true
This ain't a lie
This ain't behind
Cyrano de Berger's back

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that its "I should be the rouge of color on your cheek," and "Instead I'll make your man look good," but I could be mistaken on the latter.

    General Commentyou havehave to watch or have read Cyrano De Bergerac to understand.but the gist of it is that cyrano loved his cousin who was roxanne and roxanne loved a man named christian and he(christian) loved her too. and so cyrano decided to help christian win her over which was successfully done and he ended up dying with out ever telling her that he loved her or even cared.
