Bonjour, Paris!

No matter how many times I come to Paris,
it always feels like the first time!
I feel exactly like Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astair,
and Kay Thompson in Funny Face

I want to step out
Down the champs-Élysées
From the Arch oh Triomphe 
To the Petit Palais
That's for me!
Bonjour, Paris!

I want to wander 
Through the Saint-Honoré
Do some window shopping
In the Rue de la Paix
That's for me!
Bonjour, Paris!

I want to see the den of thinking men
Like Jean-Paul Sartre
I must philosophize with all the guys
Around Montmartre and Montparnasse

I'm strictly tourist 
But I couldn't care less
When they parlez-vous me
Then I gotta confess
That's for me!
Bonjour, Paris!
