Song Description

finding love after a war

Story Behind the Song

My grandfather was in an army air squadron based in England WWI and I imagine him having an adventure there.


After the war, I remained in Paris
That's where I first heard her name
Although time has taken it's toll,
In my mind, I still walk the banks of the Seine.
In a jazz club, dark and smokey,
Alone, she sat under soft blue light
I swept her up and we danced our way
Through the curtains of the night

The sun rose over a Left Bank cafe,
We sat smoking my last cigarette.
She cryptically spoke of her younger years, nibbling on a crepe of regret.
Then taking my arm she said, "A friend lives nearby, we need not walk very far."
Pulling me near, sweet Lizette whispered in my ear, purring the words,
Menage et trois.
Au revoir, Au Revoir, Au Revoir.
