Anglophone

VERSE 1
Am                                          Dm
After 5 weeks of driving round North America
Am                                          Dm
I thought I’d seen all it had to give
Am                                          Dm
But then I arrived in Riviere du Loup
Am
The way they looked, the way they talked
Dm                E

VERSE 2
After 5 weeks of shows in North America
My act was perfected and refined
I told my jokes and stories for an hour and a half
But nobody cried, nobody laughed

MIDDLE
E                                  Am
What kind of a place is this?
E                                                 Am
I think they’re playing a game with me
E                                                   Am
Surely they get their English from the TV
Dm                 E
I am still in North America

VERSE 3
A few days later in Montreal at the Cagibi
A beautiful young lady lands a look on me
The kind the language barrier can't hold back
“Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?”
Ja
J’e suite en anglophone
