Written for SongFight.

from my blog:

I really needed to clear off the songwriting cobwebs so I decided to take a stab at Songfight that week.

I was a little self-conscious about attempting to sing part of the song in French so I asked my friend Tina Kover to check my pronunciation and to help me add a couple syllables to one of the lines. Tina has done several translations for published books. She was a great help.

I posted reviews from other SongFighters in my blog as well.


What are you waiting for?
Look for an open door
Look at you standing there
Why don't we catch some air?

Run away
Don't wait another day
Come fly with me
We'll run away to gay Paris

They're starting to board
All of your baggage's stored
Learn French in the air
You'll know it when we get there

comment allez-vous?
Bonjour. Enchante.
Madame, sil vous plait
parlez-vous un peu d'anglais

Every time you go
You never want to leave
Every time we go
We never want to leave

Du gateau?
Oui, C'est une bonne idee
Est-ce que vous êtes ivre?
Mon Dieu, comme vos enfants sont laids

Ran away to Paris ... fade
