"Every song I have translated is well translated, the one who works on the very difficult songs with me is Dee Shipman. I know her telephone number by heart, and her fax. It goes back and forth - 'No! I don't like this word!' And she comes back and says 'Because you don't understand English!' So I have to convince her and she has to convince me, and the rapport is fantastic." 

- Charles Aznavour

Ellen's Summer Dress
(Dee Shipman / Herman Van Veen)

And as his doves start to fly free
He conjures up a fantasy 
The speeding Alfa Romeo is he
A dashboard Don Juan..........
And Ellen's summer dress hangs on the clothesline

Then in his head
By the road
He sees a girl standing
Imagined deed
Born of need
Hot and demanding...........
And Ellen's summer dress hangs on the clothesline

And as his doves 
All wheel and circle he's on the road once more
He slows the car and brakes her
Lifts the girl and takes her
Shows her what it's for..............
And Ellen's summer dress hangs on the clothesline

Undoes her skirt
Gets it off 
Feels the heat burning
Through his shirt
He gets it off
And........
And Ellen's summer dress hangs on the clothesline
And Ellen's summer dress hangs on the clothes line

Undoes her skirt
Gets it off 
Feels the heat burning
Through his shirt
He gets it off
And.........
And Ellen asks if Daddy has time to come and play...........
