lyrics

Well it was Paris in the spring
When he fell down
The red wine took it's toll

The blossoms filled the trees
Sun hit the ground
Cocaine took its toll

Early morning in Montmartre
He climbed the stairs
The late night took it's toll

He had stayed to close the bar To drown his cares
Old age took it's toll

Please don't judge the guy
for giving up on trying You just don't know what the season might hold

He clambered up a wall
Threw down his bag
He swayed to and fro

The hulk of Sacré Cœur
Leaned on his back
Paris loomed below

The cool northern breeze
danced with the sun They tangoed on his cheek

He crumbled to his knees
He knew he was done
His will was too weak
The red wine had won

Please don't judge the guy
for giving up on trying
You just don't know what the season might hold

Please don't judge the guy
for giving up on trying
You just don't know what the season might bring

The body of a man
Lies on the ground
The girl had stolen everything
All she left him was some red wine
She left him in Paris in the Spring
