  • Lyrics
  • Was in a Paris cafe that first I found him
    He was a Frenchman, a hero of the war
    But war was over
    And here's how peace had crowned him
    A few cheap medals to wear and nothing more
    Now every night in the same cafe he shows up
    And as he strolls by ladies hear him say
    If you admire me, hire me
    A gigolo who knew a better day

    Just a gigolo, everywhere I go
    People know the part I'm playing
    Paid for every dance
    Selling each romance
    Every night some heart betraying
    There will come a day
    Youth will pass away
    Then what will they say about me
    When the end comes I know
    They'll say just a gigolo
    As life goes on without me

    Just a gigolo, everywhere I go
    People know the part I'm playing
    Paid for every dance
    Selling each romance
    Every night some heart betraying
    There will come a day
    Youth will pass away
    Then what will they say about me
    When the end comes I know
    They'll say just a gigolo
    As life goes on without meWriter/s: JULIUS BRAMMER
