Home > St. Vincent > Paris Is Burning

I write to give word the war is over
Send my cinders home to mother
They gave me a medal for my valor
Leaden trumpets spit the soot of power.

They say, "I'm on your side
"When nobody is, 'cause nobody is
"Come sit right here and sleep
"While I slip poison in your ear".

We are waiting on a telegram
To give us news of the fall
I am sorry to report
Dear paris is burning after all.

We have taken to the streets
In open rejoice revolting
We are dancing a black waltz
Fair paris is burning after all.

Enclosed in this letter there's a picture
Black and white for your refrigerator
Sticks and stones have made me smarter
It's words that cut me under my armor.

They say, "I'm on your side
"When nobody is, 'cause nobody is
"Come sit right here and sleep
"While I slip poison in your ear".

We are waiting on a telegram
To give us news of the fall
I am sorry to report
Dear paris is burning after all.

We have taken to the streets
In open rejoice revolting
We are dancing a black waltz
Fair paris is burning after all.

Dance poor people, dance and drown
Dance fair paris to the ground
Dance poor people, dance and drown
Dance fair paris, ashes now.

Dance poor people, dance and drown
Dance fair paris to the ground
Dance poor people, dance and drown
Dance fair paris, ashes now.

Dance poor people, dance and drown
Dance fair paris to the ground
Dance poor people, dance and drown
Dance fair paris, ashes now.
