THE LATIN QUARTER

So this is gay Paree ! Come on along with me
We’re stepping out to see – the Latin Quarter
Put on your old beret – let’s sing the Marseillaise
And put our wine away like water
And are you in the mood – to have some Latin food ?
And have you ever wooed – a Latin daughter ?
Hoo-ray for Lafayette – Hoo-ray for crêpe Suzette
If you ain’t “et” one yet – you ought’er

Come on and
(Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
(Par ——— lez ——-
(Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
(Fran ——— çais ——-
(Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
(Their ——— way ——-
Oo-la-la-la. Comme si and comme c’a)
Cum si and cum s’ah)
That’s all the Frenchmen sing – that’s how they have their fling
That’s how the Frenchmen swing – The Latin Quarter
They’re fifty million strong – And they can’t all be wrong
Let’s all – oo-la-la-la – oo-la-la-la
Oo-la-la-la – Oo-la-la-la

2nd Chorus

We’ll watch an artist paint – He’ll take a gal who ain’t
And paint her as a saint – for just a quarter
She poses just for art – She does it from the heart
She does it à la carte – He taught’er
That gal from Armentières – Who’s been around for years
Will show you souvenirs – the soldiers brought’er
She owes a lot of thanks – to quite a lot of Yanks
For what a lot of Francs – they brought’er

Come on and
(Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
(Par ——— lez ——-
(Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
(Fran ——— çais ——-
(Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
(Their ——— way ——-
Oo-la-la-la. Comme si and comme c’a)
Cum si and cum s’ah)
That’s all the Frenchmen sing – that’s how they have their fling
That’s how the Frenchmen swing – The Latin Quarter
They’re fifty million strong – And they can’t all be wrong
Let’s all – oo-la-la-la – oo-la-la-la
Oo-la-la-la – Oo-la-la-la.
