I could have missed it somehow, but does anyone have the words to a song recorded by the Smothers Brothers back in the sixties that starts

Anne Marie loves Jean Pierre
It's written on the cafe sidewalks everywhere
Jean Pierre he loves Marie
It's written in a heart that they carved upon a tree.

I've got more verses, but I don't know if they are either accurate or complete.

Here are all the verses I remember, but I could be wrong:

Anne Marie loves Jean Pierre
It's written on the cafe sidewalks everywhere
Jean Pierre he loves Marie
It's written in a heart that 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."

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

Ring any bells for anyone? I do not think that it was originally in French.

On this page they're offering for sale a 45-rpm record called "Anne Marie Loves Jean Pierre" sung by a "girl group" called the Sugarhill Four. The record label is Limelight 3034.

Funny, I'm unable to find any other reference to the song (with that exact title) or the group.

However, this Smothers Brothers discography says that "Anne Marie and Jean Pierre" was recorded by them on the 1964 album "It Must Have Been Something I Said."

This collector's site says it was written by Lewis Allan and Alan Greene.

Sorry, I can't find the lyrics or any sound samples, but maybe the additional information will help someone else find it.

They ran off, into the park,
But they were getting hungry, and it was getting dark.
They went home, before too long,
'Cause Anne Marie was seven, and Jean Pierre was eight!

We sing this at girl scout camp! the lyrics are slightly different:

Anne Marie loves Jean Pierre
It's written on the cafe sidewalks everywhere
Jean Pierre loves Anne Marie
It's written 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 "Wee, Wee!"
And went to tell his friends "I'm marrying Marie."

They ran off into the park
But they were getting hungry, it was getting dark.
They came back, before to late
For Anne Marie was seven, and Jean Pierre was eight.
Wee!

It was from the album "It Must Have Been Something I Said". I still have it from the 60's.

Between second and third verse is a break:

"Lucky monsieur and mademoiselle; happy young love. May your love go well."

They ran off....



That album was thier best in my opinion.

Jean Pierre and Anne Marie it's written in a heart they carved upon a tree
Anne Marie and Jean Pierre it's written on the sidewalks and in cafe's everywhere
Jean Pierre said to Anne Marie, I love you very much so won't you marry me?
Anne Marie she said oui oui, so he ran and told his friends, I'm marrying Anne Marie
Happy Monsieur and Mademoiselle a happy young couple oh I hope your life goes well
So they ran off, off into the park but they were getting hungry and it was getting dark
So they came home but not too late
For Anne Marie was 7 and Jean Pierre was 8
;) :)

Jim Dixon, 22 Mar 03, wrote that this song was written by Lewis Allan and Alan Greene. I wonder if that's the same Lewis Allan (pseudonym for Abel Meeropol) who wrote Strange Fruit, The House I Live In, and other songs.

A couple of girls at camp singing this song @ link below. I have to admit, The Smothers Brothers sing it with a lot more color, but the girls here are cute (board at camp?)! But, now I have the words from the lyrics above, so I can sing it in full in my own shower! LOL! Enjoy! btw, Amy's post in 2010 ends the song cute with a WEE! Love it!

ANNE MARIE AND JEAN PIERRE
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!]
