ROMANTIC CITY

Where is that lonely girl wandering the streets of Paris  
Wishing that the night would bring romance?  
And here am I, just a lonely guy  
Playing my guitar to the Eifel Tower  
And just wishing I could give that girl a chance.  
        Romantic City, dressed in lights,  
        It's just a pity that my nights  
        Are spent alone here  
        With no one to be near.  
        Those lovers walking hand in hand  
        And kissing by the River Seine  
        Can hear the music I am playing  
        And it's all part of their scene,  
        Warm Paris night out of a dream  
        And to them my guitar seems                                 
        To be 
        Part of the                 
        Romantic City.  
  
Anyway, I love it here,  
I'm living cheap so I can stay awhile  
I wander through the streets and shops and bars  
Watching people swirl by, Yes, and looking at the girls, I  
Buy a little wine, but I save it till it's time  
To go out into the night and play guitar.  
     Romantic City, dressed in lights,  
     It's just a pity that my nights  
        Are spent alone here  
        With no one to be near.  
        Those lovers walking hand in hand  
        And kissing by the River Seine  
        Can hear the music I am playing  
        And it's all part of their scene,  
        Warm Paris night out of a dream  
        And to them my guitar seems                                 
        To be 
        Part of the                 
        Romantic City.
