    I Don't Speak the Language

    I was a banker
    Family man
    Working in Paris
    When I began
    Living my daydreams
    I left my wife
    Sailed for the islands
    To start a new life

    Down in the tropics, a colorful world
    Green of the ocean and brown native girls
    Now I'm an artist and I see nothing wrong
    To paint Tahitian without her sarong, oh no

    You know I don't speak the language
    But I still understand
    It's in the move of her body
    And in the touch of her hand
    You know I don't speak the language

    Am I a madman
    To follow the sun
    When it's every man's dream
    To do what I've done?

    Oh, no needs, no worries and no sense of time
    She's Polynesian and she is all mine
    Today I'll paint her in yellows and reds
    Tonight we'll make love with stars overhead, oh no

    You know I don't speak the language
    But I still understand
    It's in the move of her body
    And in the touch of her hand
    You know I don't speak the language

    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo
    De lay lo lay lo la
    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo la

    You know I don't speak the language
    But I still understand
    It's in the move of her body
    And in the touch of her hand
    You know I don't speak the language

    I left the tempo
    Of civilized man
    To dance the tango
    Utopian

    Mmm, how can I leave here, how can I go back?
    The life here is so aphrodisiac
    Her eyes, her lips and the smell of her hair
    Make me a savage and I cease to care, oh no

    You know I don't speak the language
    But I still understand
    It's in the move of her body
    And in the touch of her hand
    You know I don't speak the language

    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo
    De lay lo lay lo la
    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo
    De lay lo lay lo la
    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo
    De lay lo lay lo la
    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo
    De lay lo lay lo la

    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo
    De lay lo lay lo la
    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo
    De lay lo lay lo la
    De lay lo lay lo lay lo lay lo
    De lay lo lay lo la
