lirik lagu decemberists – the legionnaire’s lament

i’m a legionnaire
camel in disrepair
hoping for a frigidaire
to come p-ssing by

i am on reprieve
lacking my joie de vive
missing my gay paris
in this desert dry

and i wrote my girl
told her i would not return
terribly taken a turn
for the worse, now i fear

it’s been a year or more
since they shipped me to this foreign sh-r-
fighting in a foreign war
so far away from my home

if only summer rain would fall
on the houses and the boulevards
and the side walk bagatelles
it’s like a dream

with the roar of cars
and the lulling of the cafe bars
the sweetly sleeping sweeping of the seine
lord, i don’t know if i’ll ever be back again

medicating in the sun
pinched doses of laudanum
longing for the old fecundity
of my homeland

curses to this mirage
a bottle of ancient chiraz
a smattering of distant applause
is ringing in my poor ears

on the old left bank
my baby in a charabanc
riding up the width and length
of the champs elysees

if only summer rain would fall
on the houses and the boulevard
and the side walk bagatelles
it’s like a dream

with the roar of cars
and the lulling of the cafe bars
the sweetly sleeping sweeping of the seine
lord, i don’t know if i’ll ever be back again

if only summer rain would fall
on the houses and the boulevard
and the side walk bagatelles ‘
it’s like a dream

with the roar of cars
and the lulling of the cafe bars
the sweetly sleeping sweeping of the seine
lord, i don’t know if i’ll ever be back again

be back again
be back again
i’ll be back again
