VERSE: Suzanna says she loves me/ Like ev'rything, she loves me;/ Her manner, it is haughty,/ So "I don't care" and naughty/ But when she starts in teasing,/ Her conduct is displeasing,/ She rolls her eyes like this way,/ And then she rolls them that way./ "Oh, pardon! Please forgive me,/ I kiss you Papa, dearie,"/ She laughs and sings tra-la-la!/ Oh! do-re-mi-fa-so-la!/ That movement in her shoulder/ Just makes me want to hold her,/ She wiggles and she giggles/ "Come kiss your little baby/ Your sweet Parisian lady"/ Parlez Francais I love you/ my little Demi-Tasse
CHORUS: A-la-la-la/ Tra-la-la-la-la-la/ A-la-la-la Paree!/ Swinging singing,/ Our voices ringing,/ Birds of a feather;/ All flock together,/ A-la-la-la/ Tra-la-la-la-la-la/ A-la-la-la Paree!/ Dancing, Prancing, Life and love entrancing,/ A-la-la-la Paree!
