ACCORDION PLAYER:
Lovers!

LADY FLOWER SELLER:
Ooh la la...

SOPHIE:
Welcome, my friends, to Paris!
Here, have a flower, on me.
Forget where you're from,
You're in France!
Children, come!
I'll show you that French
"joie de vivre!"

Paris holds the key you your heart
And all of Paris plays a part.

ACCORDION PLAYER AND FLOWER SELLER:
You'll stroll two by two
Down what we call "la rue"

SOPHIE AND ALL:
And soon all Paris will be singing to you!
Ooh la la! Ooh la la! Ooh la la!

Paris holds the key to l'amour!

And not even Freud knows the cure!

At the Follies Bergere!

ARTISTE:
The French have it down to an art!

ALL:
Paris holds the key to your heart!
Ooh la la!

SOPHIE:
When you're feeling blue
Come to Le Moulin.
When your heart says don't
The French say do!

CAN CAN GIRLS:
When you think you can't
You'll find you can can!

SOPHIE:
Everyone can can can
You can can can too!

SOPHIE AND CAN CAN GIRLS:
Whee!
Whee!
Whee!

DIMITRI:
Paris holds the key to her past
Yes, Princess, I've found you
At last.
No more pretend
You'll be gone,
That's the end...

ALL:
Paris holds the key
To your heart!

You'll be "tres jolie"
And so smart!

Come dance through the night

And forget all your woes

A city of light!

Where a rose is a rose!

SOPHIE AND ALL:
And one never knows
What will start!
Paris
Holds the key...

DIMITRI:
To her...

SOPHIE AND ALL:
Heart!
Ooh la la!
Ooh la la!
