There's a blue shadow moving through the Moulin Rouge And a man with a knife point pickin his teeth An off duty cop sits with his back to the door And somebody just took a piss in the sink The cop's drinkin Pernod thinks he's drinkin absinthe With the girl who had loved him on the Rue St. Denis While somebody's slinkin smokin under a light And there's trouble in Paris tonight Now Simone pulls the collar up tight to her throat While the riverboats knock under the old Pont Neuf A rat makes a run for his hole in the wall She stops by a street light and lights a straight cigarette A Gitane on his knees starts to howl like a dog She closes her purse and tries to peer through the fog Nothin' seems wrong but somethin ain't right And there's trouble in Paris tonight Now the man cleanin his teeth well he ain't satisfied He's hungry for somethin that he just can't define The one by the sink is now sweeping the floor And the cop he ran short of dreams a long time beforeo While under a street lamp there's trouble it seems First there's a struggle and then there's a scream She didn't know what hit her when he asked for a light And there's trouble in Paris tonight Simone had been a town girl not far north of Nantes Who did it for money once then she just couldn't stop Had a fight with her mother another runaway teen Who had hotel love with a cop on the Rue St. Denis And a boy once abandoned by a cop and a whore Has a knife in his hands he was a child of the war It was either Simone or cut out the lights And there's trouble in Paris tonight There's a blue shadow moving through the Moulin Rouge And a man with a knife point pickin his teeth An off duty cop sits with his back to the door And somebody just took a piss in the sink While somebody's standin out cold in the rain Could be all warm inside drinking champagne Being thin as a shadow smokin under a light And there's trouble in Paris tonight Bein thin as a shadow smokin under a light And there's trouble in Paris tonight
