I feel love, Paris Paris
Love to love, Paris Paris
Feelings so close to my heart
Barman dans le shaker, d'abord de l'élégance
Un trait de Sacré-Coeur et deux doight de Doisneau
Une Piaf, quelques moineaux et Joséphine Baker...

Là une de Prévert, mais sans raton-laveur
Prenons un dernier verre pres Bateau lavoir
Une Sinone de Beauvoir et deux singes en hiver...
Last night was made for love

Mettez trois notes de jazz dans un quatier latin
Un menu sur l'ardoise un fond d'un bar-tabac
Et la résille d'un bas sur un genou qu on croise

Oh Baby, just take my frozen hands and hear me say
Don't let me turn to sand and blow away
Though this crowded desert called Paris

I feel love, Paris Paris
Love to love, Paris Paris
Feelings so close to my heart

Un zeste de Javanaise, un tour de
Moulin Rouge et deux de Notre-Dame
Nappé de macadam, décoré d'un chaland
D'Anvers ou d'Amsterdam un canal, Arletty

Oh Baby, just hold this lonely fan and hear him say
Don't let me turn to sand and blow away
Though this crowded desert called Paris
Sans doute la seule femme qui pouvait dire
"Paname"

I feel love, Paris Paris
Love to love, Paris Paris
Feelings so close to my heart

Mettez trois notes de jazz dans un quatier latin
Un menu sur l'ardoise un fond d'un bar-tabac
Et la résille d'un bas sur un genou qu on croise

I feel love, Paris Paris
Love to love, Paris Paris
Feelings so close to my heart

Saupoudrez, pour finir, de poussière du métro
Mais n'en prenez pas trop, Paris perdrait son âme

    General CommentSo very Paris. An all-time favourite which (nearly 20 years later) I still play over and over again, wherever I am in the world as well as when I am in Paris. Anyone who is a Francophile and who loves Paris will love this song (as well as "Jazz Is Paris"). Malcolm McLaren was a genius and is sadly missed, and together with the magnificent Catherine Deneuve - wow, what a combination...
