PARIS by Edward Rutherfurd - Completed May 25, 2014

To the tune of "Cabaret"

 

What good's pretending life's always a joy?

Be who you want to be.

Death may be looming, c'est la vie.

You're still in Gay Paree.

 

Old misconceptions, they're out the door
You've got a world to see.

Death may be looming, c'est la vie.

It's booming in Gay Paree.

 

Come taste the wine.
Come hear the band.
Come blow that horn.
Start celebrating right this way.
Your table's waiting.

 

War is depleting, sapping your soul

The city you love's not free.
Death may be looming, c'est la vie.

You'll fight for Gay Paree.

 

Endings aren't always happy, you know

The sad price of victory.

But she will live on for eternity

Majestic is Gay Paree.
