Gone and got the blues in Paris,

Paris blues called Azure-Te,

How can I be blue in Paris?

Easy 'cause you're far away.

Can't lose these blues, this Azure-Te.

Side-walk tables filled with people,

Always happy, always gay,

Still I'm all alone in Paris,

Praying you'll return someday,

Can't lose this blues, this Azure-Te

<musical interlude>

Montmarte, springtime, Eiffel Tower,

Funny taxis, the kids at play,

Paris without you is lonesome,

Yearning more and more each day,

Can't lose these blues, this Azure-Te,

If you knew how much I need you,

You'd come back to me to stay,

Having you with me in Paris,

Really is the only way,

You'd lose these blues, this Azure-Te

These Paris blues, this Azure-Te.
