Les enfants qui mentent ne vont pas au paradis
{Children who lie don't go 2 heaven}
(OK) OK, merci {OK, thank U}

When I lie awake in my boudoir
I think of U, dear
Do U think of me?
Or do U lie, do U lie?

When I'm in a sad and lonely mood, dear
I cry 4 U, dear (I cry 4 U)
Do U cry 4 me?
Do U cry, do U cry?

When I need someone 2 talk 2
U're not around
When I need another human's touch
I wear a frown cuz U're Uptown

Goin' down, goin' down, goin' down

I... I... I don't lie 2 U (I don't lie)
When I say that I'm in love, mama (Mama, mama)
I feel so good when U're near (Mama, mama)
Tell me, do U feel it 2?
Do U lie, do U lie?

(Or do U cry) Do U cry from the inside out, dear?
Or are they only artificial tears? (Artificial tears)
Do U really mean it when U cry, when U cry, when U cry? (Cry)

When I need someone 2 talk 2 (Do U lie?)
U're not around, U're not around (U're not around, I wear a frown)
When I need another human touch (Tell me why)
I wear a frown cuz U're Uptown
(Tell me why U wanna go and leave me all alone)

Goin' down, goin' down, goin' down (Goin' down)
Goin' down (down), goin' down (down), goin' down (down)
Goin' down (down), goin' down (down), down (down)

When I lie awake in my boudoir (I think of U)
I think of U, dear (Do U?)
Do y'all think of me?
Do U lie, do U lie?
