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
