LEAVING FOR PARIS

I'm leaving for paris

no I don't think that I'll see you

I'm leaving for paris

no I don't think that I need to

I'm leaving for paris

won't you try to take care of yourself?

 

I pray you won't follow 

through the crooked streets behind me

I pray you won't follow

like so many who have known me

so I'm leaving for paris

don't you try to find out where I am

 

just you try to take care of yourself

 

and when I get there

I will lose the ring you gave me

and when I get there

how happy I will then be

so I'm leaving for paris

won't you try to take care of yourself?

 

just you try to take care of yourself

cause I'm leaving

cause I'm leaving

cause I'm leaving

yes I'm leaving

for paris

 

goodbye
