And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Now there's some things I don't like and some things I do
*Well what do you say?*
Give Paris one more chance
And I can see why Paris would be ugly to you
*What do you say?*
Give Paris one more chance
But if it seems like nothing when you're on your jaunt
Don't sell this place short, this place has something you want
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Now hear the boys singing Bee Gees songs under the skies
(Give Paris one more chance)
And on the steps of Montmartre they harmonize
(Give Paris one more chance)
And the home of Piaf and Trenet too
Must have done something right
Must have something for you
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Have you been to cities have you had enough
Have you been to Paris, France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
If you don't think that Paris was made for love
I think your heart needs a telegram from up above
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Have you been to cities have you had enough
Have you been to Paris, France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
If you doubt that Paris was made for love
I think your heart needs a telegram from up above
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
Well goodnight
Give Paris one more chance

Well have you been to cities have you had enough
Have you been to Paris, France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
Because the home of Piaf and Chevalier
Must have done something right to get passion this way
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance [that's what I say]

Well here I am calling it arrogant and calling it cruel [what do you say?]
(Give Paris one more chance)
A trop civilisé et mon dieu, c'est trop cool
(Give Paris one more chance)
But the home of Piaf and Charles Aznavour
Must have done something right
And will do something more
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

[[Something in French]]

Now hear the boys [that's another verse]

Now there's some things I don't like and some things I do

If you don't think Paris was made for love
I think your heart needs a telegram from up above
If you don't think Paris was made for love

Lyrics

[Now when I first went to Paris France, I didn't like the place
I tried out my French on them
Pardon et moi monsieur Siv vous plait? Con parte le train por Leon?
And the French guy said ??? Get that?
They weren't very nice
Ooh, that burned
So my fellow americans, if you only speak 28 words of French do yourself a favour and don't try it out in Paris in the summertime
So, you can't win
Now look, I went back eight years later though, I had a job playing there with my band
So I decided I wasn't going to walk down and see any of the big tourist places cause I didn't like Paris now
I wasn't going to see their cruddy ???, their Champ de Elysee, ??? , nah, forget it
I was just going to walk down cruddy little side streets with no street signs even
Anonymous places for people who didn't like Paris

Well, my plan was going good until I went down this little side street with no name, houses with no windows, everything was anonymous just like I liked it
Cept I ran into four French teenagers coming the other way and they were singing down the street, they were just walking and singing ??? and then everything fell apart cause I could see right away uh oh was it their singing that moved me,
No, no not really
But when I heard them sing I knew why they sang in that city a lot cause they do,
They sing in that city an awful lot you know,
Like some of it's for money with a little passing the hat, but however you slice it they sing a whole lot there
Different than say certain cities in other states in the us that I can think of offhand
They sing more there
And when I heard them sing all of a sudden I knew why cause like them you see, like them ??? you know ??? pull yourself together ??? all right and I said Jonathan look at those trees ??? those trees in the summer wind you know you made a mistake
And I said yes Jonathan I knew I did
It's not right to right off arrogant Paris with just one glance
No! Of course it's miserable but it's also terrific
It's time to give Paris, that's right]

Yeah, all right

Have you been to cities have you had enough?
Have you been to Paris, France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
Because the home of Piaf and Chevalier
Must have done something right to get passion this way
And If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Here I am calling it arrogant, calling it cruel
??? Trop civilisé et mon dieu, c'est trop cool
But the home of Piaf and Charles Aznavour
Must have done something right
And shall do something more
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris, all right

Well there's some things I don't like and some things I do
But give Paris one more chance
I can see why Paris seem ugly to you
Give Paris one more chance
But if it seems like nothing when you're on your walk
Don't sell it short yet
Cause it knows how to talk
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Now hear the boys sing Bee Gees songs under its skies
And on the steps of Montmartre they harmonise
The home of Piaf and Trenet too
Must have done something right
Must have something for you
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Have you been to cities have you had enough?
Have you been to Paris, France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
The home of Piaf and Charles Aznavour
Must have done something right
And shall do something more
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Here I am calling it arrogant, calling it cruel
??? Trop civilisé et mon dieu, c'est trop cool
Give Paris one more chance
Because if you don't think Paris was made for love
Your heart needs a telegram from up above
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
Well now
Give Paris one more chance

(Thank you for coming, good night)

Well have you've been to cities? Have you had enough

[It took me a while
I had a negative attitude
So it was partly my fault too
I had to see it, see it in a new way
And I realized it's not the city's fault
It's my fault
Cause it's a cliché when one says 'Paris is so romantic'
First time you go there you'd say
'There's nothing romantic, this place is just miserable'
You got to go on the side streets
Away from the tourist places
Just a little quiet street
And be in the quiet in the afternoon
And you'll feel something
Yeah]

So have you've been to cities? Have you had enough
Have you been to Paris, France?
And if you've been there and you don't think it was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
And the home of Piaf and Trenet too
Must have done something right
Must have something for you
And if you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Give Paris one more chance

            E                    A          B
Well now I'm calling it arrogant, calling it cruel
E          A        B
(Give Paris one more chance)

And also trop civaliser et mon dieu, c'est trop cool
(Give Paris one more chance)
But if you don't think Paris was made for love
Maybe you heart needs a telegram from up above
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Well now there's some things I don't like and some things I do
(Give Paris one more chance)
I can see why Paris can be ugly for you
(Give Paris one more chance)
The home of Piaf and Trenet too
Must have done something right
Must have something for you
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Now hear boys singing Bee Gees songs under the skies
(Give Paris one more chance)
And on the steps of Montmartre they harmonize
(Give Paris one more chance)
Because if you don't think Paris was made for love
Maybe your heart needs a telegram from up above
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Well if you've been to cities and you've had enough
Have you been to Paris France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
The home of Piaf and Charles Aznavour
Must have done something right
And will so something more
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Lyrics

Well have you been to cities but you've had enough
Have you been to Paris France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
The home of Piaf and Chevalier
Must have done something right to get passion this way
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Well now I'm calling it arrogant, calling it cruel
(Give Paris one more chance)
And also trop civaliser et mon dieu, c'est trop cool
(Give Paris one more chance)
But if you don't think Paris was made for love
Maybe you heart needs a telegram from up above
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Well now there's some things I don't like and some things I do
(Give Paris one more chance)
I can see why Paris can be ugly for you
(Give Paris one more chance)
The home of Piaf and Trenet too
Must have done something right
Must have something for you
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Now hear boys singing Bee Gees songs under the skies
(Give Paris one more chance)
And on the steps of Montmartre they harmonize
(Give Paris one more chance)
Because if you don't think Paris was made for love
Maybe your heart needs a telegram from up above
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Well if you've been to cities and you've had enough
Have you been to Paris France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
The home of Piaf and Charles Aznavour
Must have done something right
And will so something more
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
