A Guy Like You

Paris, the city of lovers
Is glowing this evening
True, that's because it's on fire
But still, there's l'amour
Somewhere out there in the night
Her heart is also alight
And I know the guy she just might
be burning for...

A guy like you
She's never known, kid
A guy like you
A girl does not meet ev'ry day
You've got a look
That's all your own, kid
could there be two?

Like you?

No way!

Those other guys
That she could dangle
all look the same
From ev'ry boring point of view
You're a surprise
From ev'ry angle
Mon Dieu above
She's gotta love
A guy like you

A guy like you
Gets extra credit
Because it's true
You've got a certain something more

You're aces, kid
You see that face
You don't forget it

Want something new?

That's you...

For sure!

We all have gaped
At some Adonis

But then we crave a meal
More nourishing to chew...

And since you're shaped
Like a croissant is

No question of
She's gotta love
A guy like you!

Call me a hopeless romantic
But Quasi, I feel it

She wants you so
Any moment she'll walk
through that door


A guy so swell
A guy like you
With all you bring her
I tell you, Quasi
A fool could tell
It's wy she fell
Another, was he?
For you-know-who
From king to serf to the bourgeoisie
They're all a second-stringer

You ring the bell

You're the bell ringer!
When she wants ooh-la-la
She will discover, guy
You're one heckuva guy
Who wouldn't love a guy
Like you?

You got a lot
The rest have not
So she's gotta love
A guy like you!

Out There

The world is cruel
The world is wicked
It's I alone whom you can trust in this
whole city
I am your only friend
I who keep you, teach you, feed you
dress you
I who look upon you without fear
How can I protct you, boy unless you
Always stay in here
Away in here?

You are deformed
(I am deformed)
And you are ugly
(And I am ugly
And these are crimes
For which the world
Shows little pity
You do not comprehend
You are my one defender
Out there they'll revile you
As a monster
(I am a monster...)
Out there they will hate me
And scorn and jeer
(Only a monster...)
Why invite their calumny
And consternation?
Stay in here
Be faithful to me
(I'm faithful)
Grateful to me
(I'm grateful)
Do as I say
And stay
(I'll stay)
In here
In here

Safe behind these windows and these
parapets of stone
Gazing at the people down below me
all my life I watch them as I hide up
here alone
Hungry for the histories they show me
All my life I memorize their faces
Knowing them as they will
never know me
All my life I wonder how it feels
to pass the day
Not above them
But part of them

And out there
Living in the sun
give me one day out there
All I ask is one
To hold forever
Out there
Where they all live unaware
What I'd give
What I'd dare
Just to live one day out there

Out there among the millers and the
weavers and their wives
Through the roofs and gables
I can see them
Ev'ry day they shout and scould and go
about their lives
Heedless of the gift it is to be them
If I was in their skin
I'd treasure ev'ry instant

Out there
Strolling by the Seine
Taste a morning
Out there
Like ordinary men
Who freely walk about there
Just one day and then
I swear
I'll be content
With my share
Won't resent
Won't despair
Old and bent
I won't care

I'll have spent
One day
Out there
