Treasure Island

MacGregor Tagliaferro


Paris


Thinkin' of Paris
Always begins and ends
With thoughts of you
and how you brought
even more light
to La Ville-Lumière.

The combination
of your beauty
and the city's
was overpowerin'.
You were lovely
and I was lucky.

Even now, these thoughts
I cannot imagine
bein' without and yet
I am forlorn, mon chou,
that I am without you
and we are without Paris.

So I go there
Often in my dreams
To be with you
Spin the totem
And hope and pray
It never stops

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
