12-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time. Play: Parts 1, 1, 2, 3, 1.
Part 1:
Stranger beware, there's love in the air,
Under Paris skies.
Try to be smart and don't let your heart catch on fire.

Love becomes king, the moment it's Spring,
Under Paris skies.
Lonely hearts meet somewhere on the street of desire.
Just look and see what happened to me,
Under Paris skies.
Watch what you do, the same thing can happen to you.
Part 2:
Parisian love can bloom,
High in a skylight room,
Or in a gay café, where hundreds of people can see.
I wasn't smart, and I lost my heart,
Under Paris skies.
Don't ever be a heartbroken stranger like me.
Part 3:
Oh, I fell in love,
Yes I was a fool,
For Paris can be,
So beautifully cruel.
Paris can be a gay coquette,
Who wants to love and then forget.
Stranger beware, there's love in the air.
