We’ll always have Paris

Remember Paris Bernie?

I’ll never forget Jimmy.

It was a great weekend.

The best birthday ever.

Hard to believe what happened there on Friday night.

Unbelievable Jimmy.

The murderin’ bastards.

It’s not right Jimmy. The world is gone mad.

Stone mad Bernie. What’s got into them at all?

All those innocent people gunned down for no reason.

That could have been any of our kids at that concert or at that football match.

It could have been us enjoyin’ a quiet meal and a few scoops.

Shockin’ Bernie; Shockin’.

…and in the city of love too.

Remember the night we went on the bateau mouche?

I do,it was so romantic Jimmy, with the Eiffel tower lit up in the distance. It was the best night of my life.

Even better than the night we got married

Fuck off Jimmy, you fell asleep that night.

Did I? I cant remember.

I know, you were locked.

I remember the next morning tho’.

Shurrup Jimmy, I’m scarleh.

Paris tho’ Bernie. Paris was great. I didn’t fall asleep when we got to Paris.

I know you didn’t Jimmy. Sure you had me worn out.

With all the sight seeing Ber?

I saw some sights that weekend.

Ye can see them again Ber, any time.

I’d be afraid to go back to Paris just yet Jimmy.

Who’s talkin’ about goin’ back to Paris Ber?

Ye durty bugger.

Get away, ye love it.

Remember walkin’ down the Champs Élysées?

The long street from the Arch?

The Arc de Triomphe Jimmy.

That’s the one. I remember it well, me feet were in bits from all the walkin’.

Then we had a lovely meal in that posh restaurant, and drinks afterwards outside the pavement café.

Just think of all those innocent people out for a stroll and a drink last Friday Ber. They never knew what was comin’.

I still can’t believe it Jimmy. What’s the world come to when people can’t just enjoy a night out in peace?

There’s some fuckin’ loopers out there Bernie.

Fuckin’ head cases Jimmy.

God knows where they’ll hit next.

I’m scared to go anywhere, even into town to do me Christmas shopping.

It’s scary aright, when people can’t walk the streets for fear of being gunned down by these fuckers.

God bless all the innocent people of Paris.

…and the hundreds that were injured aswell.

Paris bu’ Jimmy. Paris was our city.

It still is Bernie

You’re right Jimmy

We’ll always have Paris Bernie

Je suis Paris.

  1. It’s been over 30 years since i was in Paris, even still my heart breaks over the senselessness of this evil. You’ve spoken what’s on the minds of many, including me.
