Description
It's more Pop Jazz than Jazz vocal, but what the heck.... It started of just noodling Am to Dm and it struck me it had a sort of French feel and as I sort of doodled vocally to the chords the words Champs Elysees ( pronounced Chaus Eleesay as far as i know) kept coming out of my mouth . A nice swinging beat and we're off to Paris France.... hope you like it

Lyrics
Champs Elysees
Chorus.
I just got to go once more to the Champs Elysees,
And I’ve just gotta go to the City with so much flair,
I’ve gotta go for a stroll down the Champs Elysees,
See the people, the Fashion, the Palace and the Folies Bergere.
1.
I want to saunter ‘neath the trees as the world goes by,
Look at all the fashions as they catch the eye,
Drink some coffee in a smart Cafe’,
As people all around while the day away.

Chorus
I just got to go once more to the Champs Elysees,
I just gotta say ‘Bonjour’ the City with so much flair,
I’ve just gotta go for a stroll down the Champs Elysees,
To see the style, the people, the Palace and the Folies Bergere.
2.
While i’m there, I hope it’s Spring,
‘Cause Paris in the spring has so much ‘zing’
I wanna buy some flowers from a flower stall,
And climb the Eiffel Tower, ‘cause its oh so tall.

Chorus.
I just got to go once more to the Champs Elysees,
I gotta say ‘Bonjour’ to the City with so much flair,
I’ve gotta go once more for a stroll down the Champs Elysees,
To see the Palace, the polish, the fashion and the Folies Bergere.

I wanna take a stroll by the river Seine,
It won’t really matter if its in the rain,
I wanna visit places where the Artists go,
There’s a Cafe’ in Monmartre where Van Gogh used to go.

(break)
Chorus.
Outro.
Yes, when I go, I hope it’s Spring,
Because paris in the Spring has so much ‘Zing’
...and it’s gotta be the place to be..... ‘C’est la vie’,
I’ve gotta be there, I’ve gotta see gay Paris’.

Maurice Vizard March. 2013.

Ah, those Frenchies!!!
You deliver another gem, M. I can always count on a solid lyric with a story that makes sense and actually GOES somewhere. And your tune has that cool-cat Maurice swing even though it's in a minor key. What a great addition to your wonderful collection of many other wonderful tunes. It's always a delightful surprise to hear one of your new songs.

Thank you for the thumbs up on this and I's so pleased you managed to listen to my organ playing to the end Ha ha... two tracks, one for the left hand and one for the right; tho I did manage to eek out a couple of bars from 'I love Paris' in the instrumental break. Thanks again Paul, I really appreciate you listening, regards M

Smoooooooth!
Maurice - couldn't resist the title, being a confirmed francophile. This is really cool - you seem to have moved forward a long way since I last listened to one of your songs. Very nicely done.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Yes Neil,
just what is it with all you Aussies going to France? LOL.... I think I know; it's because it still has character as well as style, unlike here in the UK where they knock down the old in order to build super market complex's. Thank you for taking this one in Neil and glad you find it 'smooth', regards M

Champs Elysees
I spent a week in Paris in January, Maurice, and you have captured the vibrancy and pizzaz of the Champs Elysees very nicely here. It is a fascinating road. Arc de Triumph to the guillotine in a few kilometres. So French, so chic. Well done. Regards, Peter.

All that's missing...
...is Django Reinhardt in a subtle mood. This was divine Maurice; it's tinged with that European flavor that informs many of songwriter Charles Trenet's pieces. Loved it!

This is
so much your style too Michael and I could just imagine you singing it.... I did originally want a Django feel and I did try a violin with the guitar to emulate Stephane Grapelli, but alas I wasn't quite THAT good LOL, so I settled for the organ..... Thanks so much for the compliment, regards M

Truly pleased with those words.... I do sometimes worry about the 'sound' of the acoustic, because i use my thumb to strum and it can sound a bit toneless, but with your approval I'll carry on strumming... thanks again for listening, cheers M

Nice bounce - a great "strolling" song. Wonderful lyrics and selection of words that are musical in themselves. I like the subtle variation in each one of the choruses - keeps it interesting. Truly lovely!
