Duke Ellington – Paris Blues lyrics

Left bank cafй,
Strollin the quays,
Watching the boats on the Seine
Come back again.
Where is that girl I met,
That girl that made me get those
Paris blues and wonder?
Why did I have to roam?
I was so much at home,
Ev'ry lovely evening
In a cozy cafй,
Sipping champagne
Along the main boulevards.
She was so fine,
Just like the wine.
Now ev'ry day is black.
Please, someone, send her back
So I can lose those Paris blues.
