You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire 
Your clothes are all made by Balmain 
And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes there are

You live in a fancy apartment
Off the Boulevard Saint-Michel
 Where you keep your Rolling Stones records 
And a friend of Sacha Distel, yes you do

But where do you go to my lovely 
When you're alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

I've seen all your qualifications 
You got from the Sorbonne 
And the painting you stole from Picasso 
Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does

When you go on your summer vacation
You go to Juan-les-Pins
With your carefully designed topless swimsuit
You get an even suntan on your back and on your legs

And when the snow falls you're found in Saint Moritz
With the others of the jet-set
And you sip your Napoleon brandy
But you never get your lips wet, no you don't

 But where do you go to my lovely 
 When you're alone in your bed
 Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you
 I want to look inside your head, yes I do

Your name, it is heard in high places 
You know the Aga Khan
He sent you a racehorse for Christmas 
And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh a-ha-ha-ha

They say that when you get married 
It'll be to a millionaire 
But they don't realize where you came from
And I wonder if they really care, or give a damn

 Where do you go to my lovely 
 When you're alone in your bed
 Tell me the thoughts that surround you
 I want to look inside your head, yes I do

I remember the back streets of Naples 
Two children begging in rags
Both touched with a burning ambition
To shake off their lowly-born tags, so they try

So look into my face Marie-Claire
And remember just who you are
Then go and forget me forever 
But I know you still bear the scar, deep inside, yes you do

 I know where you go to my lovely 
 When you're alone in your bed
 I know the thoughts that surround you
 'Cause I can look inside your head

(na na-na-na na na-na-na na-na na na na na) 
(na na-na-na na na-na-na na-na na na na na)
