THE LATIN QUARTER From the film "Gold Diggers In Paris" (Al Dubin / Harry Warren) Rudy Vallée So this is gay Paree ! Come on along with me We're stepping out to see - the Latin Quarter Put on your old beret - let's sing the Marseillaise And put our wine away like water And are you in the mood - to have some Latin food ? And have you ever wooed - a Latin daughter ? Hoo-ray for Lafayette - Hoo-ray for crêpe Suzette If you ain't "et" one yet - you ought'er Come on and (Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (Par --------- lez ------- (Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (Fran --------- çais ------- (Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (Their --------- way ------- Oo-la-la-la. Comme si and comme c'a) Cum si and cum s'ah) That's all the Frenchmen sing - that's how they have their fling That's how the Frenchmen swing - The Latin Quarter They're fifty million strong - And they can't all be wrong Let's all - oo-la-la-la - oo-la-la-la Oo-la-la-la - Oo-la-la-la 2nd Chorus We'll watch an artist paint - He'll take a gal who ain't And paint her as a saint - for just a quarter She poses just for art - She does it from the heart She does it à la carte - He taught'er That gal from Armentières - Who's been around for years Will show you souvenirs - the soldiers brought'er She owes a lot of thanks - to quite a lot of Yanks For what a lot of Francs - they brought'er Come on and (Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (Par --------- lez ------- (Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (Fran --------- çais ------- (Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (Their --------- way ------- Oo-la-la-la.
