A Rainy Afternoon In Paris

It was on a rainy afternoon in Paris
we were watching boats float by on the Seine
I felt just like Richard Harris
In some old spy movie scene

Head across town to see a friend of mine
She was down and out in San Michel
A Moroccan guy with a baboon on his shoulders
Said this is the court of Miracles.

Why here at night cripples walk
And all the blind can see
I’m a beggar myself he said I do it for a living
Didn’t seem like much of a living to me.

On a rainy afternoon in Paris
In the shadows of Notre Dame
A rainy afternoon in Paris
Like a picture without a frame.

I kissed you there was no hurry
So we strolled to the louvre museum
The lady in the painting she was smiling at me
Ya I think I know what she means.

See we’re leaving soon for the Far East
Guess I won’t get back this way for a while
Ya but I will always remember that
Sweet painted lady’s smile.

On a rainy afternoon in Paris
We were walking round feeling fine
And just like Marlon Brando
I’m going to tango here one last time.

And a thousand days have passed or more
Since we walked arm in arm in that downpour
And should I cross oceans of time
These memories I’ll keep here in my heart and mind.

Of a rainy afternoon in Paris
In the shadows of Notre Dame
And just like Richard Harris
Ah here I go Again
