"He made Paris move for me"
Lyrics

Chorus 2

He made Paris move for me
On the steps of the Hotel de Ville.
It was suddenly better than reading Camus,
If you’re a man you just won’t have a clue,
I’m no longer paddling my own canoe.
He made Paris move for me.

He made Paris move for me
In a cab on the Pont de Bercy.
It was suddenly better than reading Descartes.
I felt the foundations shake in Montmartre.
When I get the menu I’ll go a la carte.
He made Paris move for me.

Verse 3

I tried the old tigers outside Singapore,
I tried the young bucks in old Baltimore,
Before I met Hemingway’s young carnivore
I even considered my friend’s Labrador.

Chorus 3

He made Paris move for me
In the stall of the Opera Bastille.
I thought my love life had really plateau’d.
When it first happened I thought I’d explode.
For my old enigma he just cracked the code.
He made Paris move,
He made Paris shake,
He left all his rivals behind in his wake,
And now it’s for real and I don’t have to fake!
He’s made Paris move for me!
