9 Noir song lyrics )
( IT WAS )   A NOIR & HORNY NIGHT
( IN PARIS )
Copyright 2008 - MickTerry.com

  [spoken, French accent]
        Picture, if you will,
        a night not unlike any other night in Paris,
        where the pale moon
        is just beginning to cautiously peek
        from behind the heavy, receding storm clouds,
        illuminating their rough edges
        just enough to cast a hauntingly eerie radiance
        upon the wet streets
        of the City of Lights below.

Dirk Lancer is my name, private eyeing is my game.
What else would I be doing in a place like this?
She looked like any girl in this dank and seedy world,
the ninth and final name to be erased from my list.

Big money brought me there just to locate all the heirs
of P.T. Billingsworth, the filthy-rich tycoon.
But she had other plans, wanting nothing from that man
'til seven bullets tore into that strip saloon.

    IT WAS A NOIR & HORNY NIGHT IN PARIS,
    the kind of night that breathes and sticks to your skin.
    IT WAS A NOIR & HORNY NIGHT IN PARIS,
    where all the rain never washes your sins.

It wasn't my bald head that someone wanted dead.
Her mind was quickly changed to let me rescue her.
The killers gave us chase as my Fiat's engine raced,
dodging hookers, dwarfs and petty thieves. The rest's a blur.

    CHORUS

        We ducked into an alley as the killers sped on by.
        She melted in my arms and gently cried.

We drove on through the night, through the morning's foggy light,
'til we reached the Chateau d'If atop the craggy hills.
You might think I got the girl, but we're both from diff'rent worlds.
She slipped away into the night. I wish her well.

    CHORUS
