"Dee's lyrics for Petula's music fit like a glove. They are so artistically attuned to each other that you feel a mutual lyricism and dramatic sense coming through each song." 

- Paul Bateman

Paris (Take A Look Beneath The Surface)
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)
 

Paris is for lovers
Everybody knows
Everywhere you look you'll see

Couples starry-eyed with secret rainbows
Hand in hand in shadows where the Seine flows
Lovers sing...........
Eternal spring
Paris nights are magical 
When Paris moonlight beams

Paris is for dreamers
In each small cafe
Every street in Paris seems to play its part
From the city to the village of Montmartre
Paris is the lover who will steal your heart
Away

Paris is for lovers
Everybody knows
Everywhere you look you'll see

Couples starry-eyed with secret rainbows
Hand in hand in shadows where the Seine flows
Lovers sing..........
Eternal spring
Paris nights are magical 
When Paris moonlight beams

Paris is for dreamers
In each small cafe
Every street in Paris seems to play its part
From the city to the village of Montmartre
Paris is the lover who will steal your heart
Away
Away
Away.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

ZOLA:
Take a look beneath the surface of this hole
It's sold its soul
For cardboard shoes
And self - abuse

It's a hell of madness
The sadness clings 
Like a skin
It's cold as sin
And every day is winter
So Paris drinks....
And Paris stinks.............!

And whores' dead eyes obscenely flirt
Old slags in rags and dirt
And clap, and crap!
Rats in a trap! 
Stealing innocence away
