In Dusseldorf I met a clown His nose, it was red In Gelterkinden I forgot to frown Then remembered again In Paris I saw a big fish Swimming slow in the Seine It made me hopeful that someday our Water will be breathable again In Frankfurt I heard ein zwei drei Counting cookies and no one was shot In Berlin stopped by the polizai For drunk driving and everyone smiled In Prague I knew I'd been a witch Burnt alive, a pyre of Soviet kitsch It made me miss my Moscow mother It made me miss my New York nothing In Montpelier I stayed in a chateau A boy climbed into my bed and he knew no boundaries And in Amsterdam I got quite crazy Might have been all the tulips and canals Or it might have been all that hash, and in Barcelona, buenos dias, chocolate, le Picasso And in Brussels, clean-cut hostel And in London, me and the French existentialistsâ?¦ In Corsica I floated away All the way to Marseilles I should have held an afterparty For all the thoughts I didn't say In Dusseldorf I met a dwarf With bad breath and a really good tan In Gelterkinden I remembered how to laugh And I never ever forgot it againâ?¦
