Lyrics

Pardon me, but I'll be late – Gotta catch my subway train Pardon me, and thanks a lot But Mr. Jaffee, you're insane Goodbye Pardon me, I've got my folks – What I earn pays the rent Pardon me and thanks a lot But Mr. Jaffee, I'm content Uh-huh Did you really think I can do this? Yeah! Begin reading Veronique, she wink an eye Veronique, the bullets fly Veronique, she close her door And start the Franco-Prussian war Veronique, the femme fatale Veronique, the fleur-de-mal Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique, she wink an eye Veronique, the bullets fly Veronique, she close her door And start the Franco-Prussian war Veronique, the femme fatale Veronique, the fleur-de-mal Veronique, shut Bismarck out And make the population shout "Save our city Let old Bismarck have a look Save our Paris You look good in history book" Ah, but Veronique Won't let him have a peek Paris fall in boom one week Boom boom boom boom boom boom boom Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique, she snap her fan Veronique, she make a plan Veronique: "I save the town But I don't do it lying down" Veronique, with fiery pride Veronique, she turn the tide Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique! Veronique, she face the Hun Veronique, she face the gun Veronique, she start to dance While shouting bravely "Vive La France!" Veronique, a sudden hush Veronique, shout "Kill the Boche!" Suddenly a shot, then two And she fall lifeless down la rue But her spirit dances on above the fray Liberte, egalite, fraternite France is saved and freedom once again can speak All because of Veronique! Veronique, Veronique, Veronique, Veronique Ah! Veronique! Ah! She close the door She start the war She won't say yes Won't lift her dress She save the town She don't lie down She turn the tide With fiery pride Vive la France Vive la France Vive la France!
