Frenchman for the Night
By: Jimmy Buffett, Roger Guth
1994
>From his driftwood castle
Comes a song I've heard before
A scratchy grammaphone
Cuts to the bone
La Vie en Rose arpeggios

So the dream begins
And the song is amplified
Buy the Beaujolais
On Bastille Day
He dances in the tide

Chorus:
By the light of the moon
He's a frenchman for the night
By the light of the moon
It'll be all right

Well it takes him back
To the days of love and war
And the girl he knew
With eyes of blue
Waiting on the shore

If he'd only known
How the years would fly on by
Such a simple crime
He's run out of time
So he reaches for the sky

Chorus:
By the light of the moon
He's a frenchman for the night
By the light of the moon
It'll be all right

Blame it on the Champs Elysees
Blame it on a tune
Blame it on the stroke of Monet
But you can't escape the moon
You can't escape the moon.

He sees the stars above
As the floor to heavens light
While the angels taunt
C'est une nuit blanche
He's a frenchman for the night.

>From a driftwood castle
Comes a song I've heard before
Scratchy grammophone
Cuts to the bone
La vie en rose arpeggios

Chorus:
By the light of the moon
He's a frenchman for the night
By the light of the moon
It'll be all right
By the light of the moon
He's a frenchman for the night
By the light of the moon
It'll be all right
