The train pulled into Paris Like a rocket to the moon. The station's like a circus Every face is a cartoon. And everyone's stoned on pride And drunk on cheap champagne. Tonight this joie de vivre Sure don't live up to its name. Now all I can say is I'd give this world to you Every rock and every stone Every masterpiece in Rome And if you'd ask me to I'd steal the Mona Lisa Tear it up in little pieces And lay them at your feet For all the world to see. But tonight I can't give you Paris. Aristicats are everywhere And the air is as thick as thieves. She'd like nothing better than to Steal the breath from me. And the tower's lights ain't shinin' As it hangs its head in shame At the sight of American blood On the streets of St. Germain Washin' up into the Seine And I'd give this world to you I'd steal the crown and kingdom From the Queen of England And if you'd ask me to I'd take this city in my hands Break it down to grains of sand And lay them at your feet For all the world to see. But tonight I can't give you Paris.
