I Don't Speak French

	  		

G 
I met a girl named Gabrielle 
She was dressed in black and young as hell 
    C 
She took me to her domicile 
D 
Invited me to stay a while 

G 
She fed me breakfast and fed me wine 
And later on we took the time 
    C 
To explore each others areas 
D                          Em 
Run into a language barrier 

         G 
It can be so frustrating 
C                   Am 
The way we insist on communicating 
     C               D 
But I do not parley-vous you 

G 
I don't speak French 
     C           D               G 
But somehow I've gotten on her good side 
C D G 
Oh! I don't speak French 
     C           D              G 
But there's only one thing on her mind. 
Oh I. 


G 
Voulez-vous mon ami 
Bonsoir, baby 
  C 
Is all I know how to say right now 
D 
But you can bet I'm learning how 

G 
'Cos where I'm from the thing to do 
Is to paint yourself red, white and blue 
C 
How about you? 
D                                    Em 
Can you say you do the same thing too 
             G 
I'm just your average Yankee 
C                    Am 
Trapped in a world of French hanky-panky 
       C               D 
But I do not parlez-vous you 

G 
I don't speak French 
     C         D               G 
But I've got a shit load of Euros 
C D  G 
Oh I! I don't speak French 
C                 D              G 
But that doesn't matter to French girls. 
C D     G 
Oh I. Come on! 

C D G C D G 

There's a plane on the ground at JFK 
C 
For me it waits 
   D 
To carry me away to you 
G 
The things we did 
The things we didn't do 
C 
Oh Gabrielle 
D                          Em 
I learnt so much from you 

              G 
You taught me how to surrender 
C                           Am  
Instinctual behavior from a time you don't remember 
          C                                        D 
But thank God the allies crushed the Nazis on the 6th of November 

G 
I don't speak French 
    C              D            G 
But somehow I've gotten on a good time 
C D   G                 
Oh I! I don't speak French 
    C               D                 G 
But there's only one thing on her mind. 
C D     G 
Oh yeah! I don't speak French 
   C             D                     G 
But that doesn't matter to French girls 
C  D  G               
Oh I! I don't speak French 
             C                D             G 
'Cos it's useless most places in the world.
