    He met her in a French cafe
    She slipped in sideways like a cat
    Sidelong glances
    What a wary little stray!
    She sticks in his mind like that
    Saying, "Avez-vous un allumette?"
    With her lips wrapped around a cigarette
    Yvette in English saying,
    "Please have this
    Little bit of instant bliss."

    He's fumbling with her foreign tongue;
    Reaching for words and drawing blanks
    A loud mouth is stricken deaf and dumb
    In a bistro on the left bank
    "If I were a painter," Picasso said,
    "I'd paint this girl from toe to head!"
    Yvette in English saying,
    "Please have this
    Little bit of instant bliss."

    Burgundy nocturne tips and spills
    They trot along nicely in the spreading stain
    New chills, new thrills
    For the old uphill battle
    How did he wind up here again?
    Walking and talking
    Touched and scared
    Uninsulated wires left bare
    Yvette in English going,
    "Please have this
    Little bit of instant bliss."

    What blew her like a leaf his way?
    (Up in the air and down to Earth)
    First she flusters
    Then she frays
    So quick to question her own worth
    Her cigarette burns her fingertips
    As it falls like fireworks she curses it
    Then sweetly in English she says,
    "Please have this,
    Little bit of instant bliss."

    He sees her turn and walk away
    Skittering like a cat on stone--
    Her high heels clicking--
    What a wary little stray!
    She leaves him by the Seine alone
    With the black water and the amber lights
    And the bony bridge between left and right
    Yvette in English saying,
    "Please have this
    Little bit of instant bliss."
