I Dreamt I Was Back in Paris

I dreamt I was back in Paris and so were you 
We strolled down the Champs-Élysées1 as we used to do 
We wandered far into the bois2 and picnicked under the trees 
Then home again across the Seine3 past twinkling lights on the quays 
 
I dreamt of the old Rotonde4 in Montparnasse5
We sat by the crowded pavements and watched them pass 
We went once a year 
The month was May 
The chestnuts flaming on you 
I dreamt I was back in Paris 
I hope my dream comes true 
 
Opéra,6 Concorde,7 Madeleine 8 
Each dear familiar name 
Into my dream they came 
I heard them just the same 
 
Notre-Dame,9 Vendôme,10 Mogador 11 
I saw them all once more 
They stood there as before 
This city I adore
 
I dreamt I was back in Paris and so were you 
We strolled down the Champs-Élysées as we used to do 
We wandered far into the bois and picnicked under the trees 
Then home again across the Seine, past twinkling lights on the quays 
 
I dreamt of the old Rotonde in Montparnasse
We sat by the crowded pavement and watched them pass
We went once a year
The month was May
The chestnuts flaming on you
I dreamt I was back in Paris
I hope my dream comes true
