lyrics

Me and my friend Elisabeth decided to take a trip
So we boarded an airplane; we didn't know how to sail a ship
The pilot said, "where to, young folks?"
And we said take us to France
So we flew to the Franceland wearing our French fancy pants

And we danced under the eiffel tower
As it sparkled brilliant light
We ate fresh baguettes at every hour
And the red wine poured all night

I said to Elisabeth now what shall we do?
Should we visit musée d'Orsay or possibly the Louvre?
Or here's one called Musée de l'Érotisme,
I dunno what it means but I think I'd like to see it!

And we danced under the eiffel tower
As it sparkled brilliant light
We ate fresh baguettes at every hour
And the red wine poured all night

We traveled around the Franceland from Alsace to Normandy
Wearing our French fancy pants and trying smelly cheese
We met a friendly Frenchman playing UNO named Benji
He tried to run away to Russia but we brought him to Tennessee!
