Paris for Lovers 

I won't tell you all the places we can go
but there are many the names
are not important not now first
we have to prepare ourselves sit here
in my garden in Minneapolis I can tell you are
excited so am I let me pour some wine
it will taste better in Montparnasse I'll
give you that but for now
let's talk I know it's noisy here
and that dog won't stop barking but what will
you think when we are alone on those streets
with my arm around you maybe
in front of the Louvre or the Place de
la Concorde
try not to be impatient we have plenty of time
have another glass imagine all the flowers
we can almost say we were there
