Last Time In Paris

(Available as the B-side to "Another Rainy Night", and on the "Ford Fairlane" soundtrack.)

Last time in Paris was a little strange,
Had time to myself.
Headed out to see the city sights.
Met a little thing on the Champs-Elysees,
Stole my heart away,
You know I never could pronounce her name.
She didn't mind at all.
We were sitting there,
Seemed like hours
Pass the day away,
Till they said we had to pay,
Or do the dishes or something,
I don't know.

Living at the plaza Athenae
Got to rest for the show.
Man at the front desk knew my face.
Said he had a room with a view for two.
But he forgot to say,
Renovation next door starts today.
Can't find another room.
All day long they banged.
Fourteen hours.
Show time on my mind,
And wringing somebody's throat,

Last time in Paris,
Last time in Paris,
Last time in Paris was strange.
Last time in Paris,
Last time in Paris,
Last time in Paris was strange.

Overslept, missed the bus to the show
Had to find my own ride.
Took the metro out to Avingnon.
Man at the backstage, didn't know my name.
Said hey, I'm with the band!
You and everyone today.
What is this guy new?
Fifteen minutes fly,
Someone sees me.
Inside let me go
Hey Geoff, we need photos
Before the show!

[What? You gotta be kidding!]

Last time in Paris,
Last time in Paris,
Last time in Paris was strange.
Last time in Paris,
Last time in Paris,
Last time in Paris was strange.
