Monsieur Dupont

Sandie Shaw French & English

 

For those wanting to hear how to pronounce "Monsieur"...  A song from the sixties from the barefoot pop star, Sandie Shaw.

First is the English version but scroll down for the French version. 

Sandie Shaw was "arrested" in Paris for being dressed up like a French policeman, while promoting the song. She told reporters the next day: "I was clowning around near the President's pad when these policemen descended on me and I was whipped away to a police station. Everybody was very sweet when they found out that I was genuinely looking for a Monsieur Dupont. It was very nice. I even sang a little of the song."

The song "Monsieur Dupont" by Sandie Shaw :

The rain was falling down, as I flew out of town
I went to Paris for the day.
And there I got to know a certain Romeo
With oh so gentle continental ways
Monsieur Dupont,
(la la ta ta,)
Monsieur Dupont,
(la la la la)
You made me see so tenderly that I was never loved before

Monsieur Dupont,
(la la ta ta,)
I know it's wrong,
(la la la la)
That I don't ever want to go home anymore

You said "Hello" to me, and I began to see
That I could fall in love with you
I seemed to realize the kind of paradise
Your continental kiss could lead me to

Monsieur Dupont,
(la la ta ta,)
Monsieur Dupont,
(la la la la)
You made me see so tenderly that I was never loved before

Monsieur Dupont,
(la la ta ta,)
I know it's wrong,
(la la la la)
That I don't ever want to go home anymore

I'm learning every day a different word to say
I know "Je t'aime" and "Je t'adore"
But won't you tell how, oh won't you tell me now,
The way you say en français : Give me more !
(Monsieur Dupont)
Monsieur Dupont,
(la la ta ta,)
Monsieur Dupont,
(la la la la)
You made me see so tenderly that I was never loved before

Monsieur Dupont,
(la la ta ta,)
I know it's wrong,
(la la la la)
That I don't ever want to go home anymore

That I don't ever want to go home anymore.
