Where Do You Go To My Lovely

Peter Sarstedt

 CEm
You talk like Marlene Dietrich
 FG
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
 CEm
Your clothes are all made by Balmain
 FGG/FG/EG/D
And there`s diamonds and pearls in your hair_________

 CEm
You live in a fancy appartement
 FG
Of the Boulevard of St. Michel
 CEm
Where you keep your Rolling Stones records
 FGG/FG/EG/D
And a friend of Sacha Distel_________

 CEm
   But where do you go to my lovely
 FG
   When you're alone in your bed
 CEm
   Tell me the thoughts that surround you
 FGG/FG/EG/D
   I want to look inside your head_________

I've seen all your qualifications
You got from the Sorbonne
And the painting you stole from Picasso
Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does

When you go on your summer vacation
You go to Juan-les-Pines
With your carefully designed topless swimsuit
You get an even suntan, on your back and on your legs

When the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz
With the others of the jet-set
And you sip your Napoleon Brandy
But you never get your lips wet

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

Your name is heard in high places
You know the Aga Khan
He sent you a racehorse for chistmas
And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh haha

You're in between 20 and 30
A very desirable age
Your body is firm and inviting
and you live on a glittering stage yes you do, yes you do

They say that when you get married
It'll be to a millionaire
But they don't realize where you came from
And I wonder if they really care, they give a damn

Where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head

I remember the back streets of Naples
Two children begging in rags
Both touched with a burning ambition
To shake off their lowly brown tags, yes they try

So look into my face Marie-Claire
And remember just who you are
Then go and forget me forever
`Cause I know you still bear the scar, deep inside, yes you do

I know where you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
I know the thoughts that surround you
`Cause I can look inside your head
