The Kingston Trio
One night along the river at Saint-Germain-des-Prés
I first met my beloved at a small sidewalk café.
We walked along the river, the shadows passing by
But we only saw each other, the shining water and the sky
The Seine, the Seine, when will I again meet her there
Greet her there on the moonlit banks of the Seine?
Standing there across the river, mid sound of horn and tram
In all her quiet beauty, the cathedral Notre Dame
And as we passed beside her, I said a little prayer
That when this dream was over, I'd awake and find you there
We walked along the river, 'till dawn was coming nigh
Beneath the Eiffel Tower we said our last good-bye.
There on that splendid morning, I left you all in tears
And the beauty of that hour will shine within me through the years
The Seine, the Seine,
When will I again meet her there on the Seine?
