'Twas in a Paris café at first I found him He was a Frenchman, a hero of the war But war was over and here's how peace had crowned him Of which he'd medals to wear and nothing more Now, every night in the same café he shows up And as he strolls by, ladies hear him say If you admire me, hire me A gigolo who knew a better day Just A Gigolo, everywhere I go People know the part I'm playing Paid for every dance, selling each romance Every night some heart betraying There will come a day, youth will pass away Then what will they say about me When the end comes I know they'll say "Just A Gigolo," as life goes on without me (Transcribed from the Bing Crosby recording of March 2nd 1931 by Mel Priddle - Aug 2010) ********** German version, "Schöner Gigolo, Armer Gigolo": Schoner Gigolo, armer Gigolo Denke nicht mehr an die Zeiten Wo du als Husar, goldverschnurt sogar Koontest durch die Strassen reiten! Uniform passee, Liebchen sagt: A-dieu! Schone Welt, du ginst in Fransen! Wenn das Herz das auch bricht, zeig ein Jachendes Gesicht, man zahit und du musst tanzen!
