Read introduction

One boring day, in the french metro, in Paris, I saw this pretty redhead getting on the train car. I did not dare to tell her anything but I just made a song: deep in my fantasy, I imagined she was an american tourist so I decided to write the lyrics in english.

the Girl in Paris

When the metro stopped, a girl got on the train car.
She sat right in front of me…
Beautiful, unapproachable like Halle Berry or Katy Perry.
Her perfume was from Christian Dior
Or maybe another fragrance from Gucci, Givenchy.
Just look at me, my Beauty Queen, and smile to me,
Get you lucky and get you happy: be my King’s Beauty…

Love wants me to pay the bills;
You know I’m not taking my pills…
Embrace your pillow,
Un coup d’fil au
Docteur : "Mais qu’est-ce qui m’arrive ?
"Tell me what I gonna do,
"My cat is a monster, call Gabridou !"

I do remember my mother told me:
"You cannot live your life in fairy Tales…"
But I would like you to ring my bell,
I would like you to put a spell
On me…
I would be your handsome victim
And you would be my felony…
This is the end of the journey,
The driver yells loudly, think he’s crazy:
"Villejuif-Louis Aragon, terminus, tout le monde descend !"

Love wants me to pay the bills;
You know I’m not taking my pills…
Embrace your pillow,
Un coup d’fil au
Docteur : "Mais qu’est-ce qui m’arrive ?
Tell me what I gonna do,
My cat is a monster, call Gabridou !"

Then you get off at this station,
So cruel, you didn’t even pay attention
To me…
Is it impossible to have a goodbye for free?
I guess you’ll never be my Ex,
I guess we won’t have any sex
Together…

Thank you for keeping your mystery,
Too bad, you let me in my misery…
Thank you for keeping your mystery,
Lucky me: you are feeding my poetry…

This is how we do it in France,
When a poet meets a girl in the french underground…

Thank you for keeping your mystery,
Lucky me: you are feeding my poetry…
