Meeting Juliette Greco in bed in the afternoon with Miles Davis
In a cheap hotel on Saint-Germain
Seeing them later in love at the Club Tabou
A ghost of New Orleans
Juliette dances with Miles' trumpet
Miles and miles and miles of Miles Davis
Echoes around the room
With Juliette sobbing and moaning the verses
Afuneral of sublime passion
"I didn't know he was black" she said
"I don't know why, I just didn't
And when I discovered he was black
I just cried and cried"
Jazz is Paris and Paris is Jazz
"So why didn't you sing this song Juliette" I said
"I can't" Juliette said "I only sing in french"
