Lyrics

Alvin:
You know friends we like to travel a lot.
And one day while we were in Paris Dave was taking us on a bicycle tour of the city.
I had jumped off but Dave didin't know it.

Dave:
Well boys have you been studying your French history?

Simon:
The Cathedral of Notre Dame took 200 years to build.

Dave:
Very good Simon.

Theodore:
The Eifel Tower is 984ft high.

Dave:
Good Theodore.
How 'bout you Alvin?
Where's Alvin?

Theodore:
He got off a little while ago.

Alvin:
Good evening mademoiselle.
My name is Alvin and I'm all alone in your beautiful city.
How about showing me around?
You don't parler English?
Well, I don't parler much French either, but I'll try my best.

Bonsoir, bonsoir, mademoiselle, bonsoir
I wish I could speak French
Petit amour a voulez vous toujours
I wish I could speak French

A kiss for moi would be so ooh, ooh-la-la!
I wish, I wish I could speak French
Promenade avec moi, avec moi, ce soir
Like to meet your mama and your papa

Bonsoir, bonsoir, mademoiselle, bonsoir
I, I wish I could speak French

Me Alvin, you pretty girl, understand?
You don't understand, huh?
Too bad.

Promenade avec moi, ce soir
Like to meet your, your mama and your papa
Bonsoir, bonsoir, mademoiselle, bonsoir
I wish, I wish I could speak French

You mean you will go out with me?!
Oui? Oui? Wow!

Dave:
Come on Alvin wake up, wake up.

Alvin:
Where are the girls?

Dave:
There are no girls Alvin.
You must've been havin' a dream.

Alvin:
Aw nuts.
