MIDI File

Paris Girls: We've come to this country unknown,
It's most picturesque you must own;
And the lakes we have seen
Are a deeper blue-green
That the ones in the Bois de Boulogne!
The lakes in the Bois de Boulogne!
So here in the mountains we are;
They look very icy from far,
But the glaciers will melt
On the spot when they've felt
A breath of the Boulevard!
Chorus: So here in the mountains you are;
They look very icy from far,
But the glaciers will melt
On the spot when they've felt
A breath of the Boulevard!
   
Lili: Switzerland in snow
Is a big gâteau
With a sugar coating —
Chorus: Coating, coating!
Lili: Then the air is nice,
Like champagne on ice,
Where the sun is floating —
Chorus: Floating, floating!
Lili: Ah! c'est si gentil,
Quite at home I feel!
Et bien! sapristi!
Me voici, la Lili!
This is just like Paris then,
For I'm the Pa-pa-pa-Parisienne.
Chorus: Et bien! sapristi!
La voici, la Lili!
Switzerland is Paris then,
For she's the Pa-pa-pa-Parisienne.
   
Lili: Then the place is full
Of the young John Bull
And his manly father —
Chorus: Father, father!
Lili: They're so strong and tall,
I adore them all,
And they like me, rather —
Chorus: Rather, rather!
Lili: Flirting I have heard
Is an English word!
Et bien! sapristi!
Me voici, la Lili!
Don't I love the Englishmen,
For I'm the Pa-pa-pa-Parisienne.
Chorus: Et bien! sapristi!
La voici, la Lili!
She adores the Englishmen,
For she's the Pa-pa-pa-Parisienne.
