Lyrics

French Lover

Written By: Mila

French lover 3.13
Mila

I took a few lessons
In an old institute
I needed to study
that strange language of yours
I took some more lessons
In that same institute
But all I learned
Was how to speak

To the baker and the banker
To the cleaner & the cooker
To the doctor and the driver
And even to the hamster
They forgot to teach me
How to speak to you

To the lawyer & the lodger
To the masseur & the mayor
To the singer & the painter
And even the oyster
They forgot to teach me
How to speak to you
My French lover. My french lover

So many lessons!
In the best institute
Should have silenced
This heart of mine
I keep on trying
But there are still words
I need to improve
Not how to speak

To the sailor &the butler, to the waiter & the sculptor, to dreamers & the lovers
And even to the flowers
They forgot to teach me
how to speak to you…

To the preacher& the hooker
To the sailor and the tailor
To the driver and seducers
And even to the lobster
They forgot to teach me
How to speak to you.

My french lover, my french lover..Bis

To the lawyer & the lodger
To the masseur& the mayor
To the singer & the painter
And even to the oyster,
They forgot to teach me
How to speak to you

To the sailor &the butler
To the dancer & the sculptor
To the killers & the lovers
And even to the flowers, they forgot to teach me how to speak to you.

My french lover.My french lover.Bis
Chorus bis

So many lessons!
In the best institute
Should have silenced
This heart of mine
