Mademoiselle From Armentieres




Mademoiselle from Armentieres, Parlez-vous,
Mademoiselle from Armentieres, Parlez-vous,
Mademoiselle from Armentieres,
She hasn't been kissed for forty years.

Hinky-dinky parlez-vous.

Our top kick in Armentieres, Parlez-vous,
Our top kick in Armentieres, Parlez-vous,
Our top kick in Armentieres,
Soon broke the spell of forty years

Hinky-dinky parlez-vous.

Oh Mademoiselle from Armentieres, Parlez-vous,
Mademoiselle from Armentieres, Parlez-vous,
She got the palm and the croix de guerre,
For washin' soldiers underwear,

Hinky-dinky parlez-vous.

From gay Paree we heard guns roar, Parlez-vous,
From gay Paree we heard guns roar, Parlez-vous,
From gay Paree we heard guns roar,
But all we heard was "Je t'adore",

Hinky-dinky parlez-vous.

The Colonel got the Croix de Guerre, Parlez-vous,
The Colonel got the Croix de Guerre, Parlez-vous,
The Colonel got the Croix de Guerre,
The son-of-gun was never there!

Hinky-dinky parlez-vous.

Oh Mademoiselle from Armentieres, Parlez-vous,
Mademoiselle from Armentieres, Parlez-vous,
You didn't have to know her long,
To know the reason men go wrong!

Hinky-dinky parlez-vous

You might forget the gas and shell, Parlez-vouz,
You might forget the gas and shell, Parlez-vouz,
You might forget the gas and shell,
You'll never forget the mademoiselle,

Hinky-dinky parlez-vous
