The Last Time I Saw Paris

Lyrics:Oscar Hammerstein II
Music:Jerome Kern

The song was publishe 1940.

It was sung in the 1941 film Lady Be Good by Ann Sothern.

By December 1940, six versions of the song were on the charts,
with Kate Smith having exclusive radio rights for the song for six weeks.
The song catered to a wartime nostalgia for songs about
European cities following the Second World War Battle of France
(which brought Paris under Nazi control),
with "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" also proving popular.

The song inspired the title of and figures prominently
in the film The Last Time I Saw Paris (1954).



Lady Be Good


The Last Time I Saw Paris


A lady known as Paris, Romantic and Charming
Has left her old companions and faded from view
Lonely men with lonely eyes are seeking her in vain
Her streets are where they were, but there's no sign of her
She has left the Seine...

The last time I saw Paris, her heart was warm and gay,
I heard the laughter of her heart in every street cafe,
The last time I saw Paris, her trees were dressed for spring,
And lovers walked beneath those trees and birds found songs to sing.

I dodged the same old taxicabs that I had dodged for years.
The chorus of their squeaky horns was music to my ears.

The last time I saw Paris, her heart was warm and gay,
No matter how they change her, I'll remember her that way.

I'll think of happy hours, and people who shared them
Old women, selling flowers, in markets at dawn

Children who applauded, Punch and Judy in the park
And those who danced at night and kept our Paris bright
'Til the town went dark.
