Follies - Ah! Paris Lyrics

2011 Broadway revival
Follies the Musical - Ah! Paris Lyrics

New York has neon, Berlin has bars,
But ah! Paree!
Shanghai has silk and Madrid guitars.
But ah! Paree!In Cairo you find bizarre bazaars.
In London "pip! pip!" you sip tea.
But when it comes to love.
None of the above
Compares, compris?
So if it's making love
That rou're thinking of,
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah! Paree!
I have seen the ruins of Rome,
I've been in the igloos of Nome.
I have gone to Moscow. it's very gay--
Well, anyway.
On the first of May.
I have seen Rangoon and Soho,
And I like them more than so-so.
But when there's a moon.
Goodbye, Rangoon--
Hello. Montmartre, hello!
Peking has rickshaws, New Orleans jazz.
But ah! Paree!
Beirut has sunshine -- that's all it has,
But ah! Paree!
Constantinople has Turkish baths
And Athens that lovely debris.
Carlsbad may have a spa.
But for ooh-la-la,
You come with me!
Carlsbad is where you're cured
After you have toured
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah! Paree!
