Zazou, what you're gonna do?
There's a lot of people coming for you
Zazou, comment allez-vous?
A knock on the door in the night

That Zazou, he don't care
Dark glasses, long hair
Takes his time, sneers at men
Some ugly people want revenge

Zazou, comment allez-vous?
A knock on the door in the night (In the night)

In the night (In the night)

That Zazou, he sleeps all day
Then down to Select or Le Collisee
Sips his drinks, orders more
Says what he thinks and it's a crazy war

Zazou, what you're gonna do?
A knock on the door in the night
(In the night In the night ...)

Zazou, comment allez-vous?
A knock on the door in the night (the night the night)

And when the soldiers strut, all he cares about
Is love
When the flags are out, all he cares about
Is love
Well, there's a thin line between love and crime
And in this situation
A thin line between love and crime and -
Collaboration (-ration)

In the night
(In the night In the night In the night In the night ...)

(Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime
Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime Crime
Crime Crime Crime Crime ...)

In the night (In the night In the night)

In the night (In the night In the night)

Zazou, what you're gonna do?
There's a lot of people coming for you
Zazou, comment allez-vous?
A knock on the door in the night

Now everybody's under somebody's spell
Unless they've already gone to hell
In the streets you can hear the people say
That, Zazou, he should be locked away!

When the soldiers strut, all he cares about
Is love
Oh, when the flags are out, all he cares about
Is love
And there's a thin line between love and crime
And in this situation
A thin line between love and crime and
Collaboration
