“I never knew the charm of spring I never met it face to face I never new my heart could sing I never missed a warm embrace

‘Til April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom Holiday tables under the trees April in Paris, this is a feeling That no one can ever reprise

I never knew the charm of spring I never met it face to face I never new my heart could sing I never missed a warm embrace

‘Til April in Paris Whom can I run to What have you done to my heart”

Paris is even more enchanting in the Spring time.  Wander in museums, savor the wine, and walk amongst the parks and waterways.
