The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo I just got here from Paris from the sunny southern shore, I to Monte Carlo went, just to raise my winter's rent Dame Fortune smiled upon me as she'd never done before And I've now such lots of money, I'm a gent. Yes, I've now such lots of money I'm a gent. cho: As I walk a long the Bois Boolong with an independent air, You can hear the girls declare, He must be a millionaire, You can hear them sigh and wish to die, You can see them wink the other eye At the man that broke the bank at Monte Carlo. I stay indoors till after lunch and then my daily walk To the great Triumphal Arch is one grand triumphal march. Observ'd by each observer with the keenness of a hawk I'm a mass of money, linen, silk and starch Yes, I'm a mass of money, linen, silk and starch. I patronized the table at the Monte Carlo hell Till they hadn'y got a sou for a Christian or a Jew So I quickly went to Paris for the charms of mad'moiselle Who's the loadstone of my heart what can I do? When with twenty tongues she swears that she'll be true. From Flashes of Merriment, Levy note: much parodied, though most parodies only utilize the chorus. RG RG oct97
