Johnny goes to Paris and he sits in a bar, pretends that he's in his home town
He has a little drink and then he starts thinkin' about the girls back home
So he has another and he's over the edge, he's at the highschool prom
All the girls there are dancin' on air, speakin' in tongues
( She speaks in French)

He don't know what she meant but what he heard excites him

Johnny goes to Paris and he sits in a bar, after continental polish
A hooker comes along, took him in Dijon, he finally got his wish
So it's in/n/out Monica, pop inta Cannes, a little tast-o-Nice
Ice-cream-bier, crepe Genevieve he's Lucky Pierre

( She's speaking in French, again, he's. . . defenseless)

He don't know what she said but what he hears excites him

Johnny goes to Paris and he sits in a bar
Johnny goes to Paris and he sits in a bar
Johnny goes to Paris and he sits in a bar, he's chasin' every mammary down
what color hair? what color eyes? were there more than one?
So he has another and he's back on his bum and there they are again
He says, "I gotta run. "
She says, "You gotta come"
He says, "BON , Bon, b o n )
Whoa the games....he don't know what they're playin'
Funny money, funny money, funny money, funny money,
funny money, funny money, funny money, funny money she said,

( She speaks in? ...Qui, you guessed it... French !, Belle De Jour ! ( ! again)
more, more French....les parapluies de cherbourg....his brain, where's his brain?
it's gone, no no, there it is, it's.....it's .....a S O U F F L E ! ! yes, QUI QUi a souffle
....a falling, a rapidly falling souffle ,in the rain.....his kingdom for a parapluies
....She speaks in French)

He don't know what she meant but mystery excites him
