  • April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom
    Holiday tables under the trees
    April in Paris, this is a feeling
    No one can ever reprise

    I never knew the charm of spring
    Never met it face to face
    I never new my heart could sing
    Never missed a warm embrace

    Till April in Paris
    Whom can I run to
    What have you done to my heart

    Yes, April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom
    Holiday tables under the trees
    April in Paris, this is a feeling
    No one can ever reprise

    I never knew the charm of spring
    Never met it face to face
    I never new my heart could sing
    Never missed a warm embrace

    Till April in Paris
    Now whom can I run to
    Oh, what have you done to my heart

    I never knew the charm of spring
    Never met it face to face
    I never new my heart could sing
    Never missed a warm embrace

    Till April in Paris
    Whom can I run to
    What have you done to my heart Writer/s: E. Y. Harburg, Vernon Duke
