Thread Name: Lyr Req: Anne Marie and Jean Pierre (Smothers Bros
Subject: Lyr Add: ANNE MARIE AND JEAN PIERRE (Greene/Allan)
Alan Greene / Lewis Allan
As sung by the Smothers Brothers on "It Must Have Been Something I Said" (1964, reissued 2011)

Anne Marie she loves Pierre.
It's written on the cafe sidewalks everywhere.
Jean Pierre he loves Marie.
You'll find it in a heart they carved upon a tree.

Anne Marie, she said one day:
"I love you very much, so let us run away."
Jean Pierre, he said, "Oui, oui,"
And shouted to his friends, "I'm marrying Marie."

Lucky monsieur and mademoiselle,*
Happy young lovers, may your love go well.

They ran off and reached the park,
But they were getting hungry; it was getting dark.
They came home, but not too late,
For Anne Marie was seven; Jean Pierre was eight.

[* Dick Smothers' pronunciation of the French words is terrible!]
