my lyricsbox
Twilight turns from amethyst
To deep and deeper blue
We've got an hour or two
Before it's time to go
Let's go see a movie show

Jeanne can't choose
Between the two
'Cause Jules is hip
And Jim is cool

And so they live together
With the trees and birds
And little girls
Who play upon

Poor Jean-Claude's nerves
Till finally
He strokes Claire's knee
And when she asks

Of his ambition
Jean-Pierre replies
"My mission
Is to become eternal

And to die..."
Heaven knows the reason why...

When the lights go out
All over Europe

I forget about old Hollywood,
'Cause Doris Day could never
Make me cheer up
Quite the way those French girls always could

[French Verses]

When the lights go out
All over Europe
I forget about old MGM
'Cause Paramount

Was never Universal
And Warners went out
Way back when
Those lights go out

All over Europe
I forget about old Hollywood,
'Cause Doris Day could never
Make me cheer up

Quite the way those French girls
Always could.
This song is from the album "Promenade".
