Fake diamond rings on every finger

Purple shadows around my eyes

I show Americans del norte

The best of Paris’s underside


I worked the dirt in Oklahoma and ate my crow and humble pie

Though I walk through the Latin quarter

It’s still a dust bowl in my mind


You can’t make me go home

When I don’t wanno go!


I’ve lived on peanuts for the season

Bathtub martinis extra dry

Down in the thirteenth arrondissement

I waste my money on good times


You can’t make me go home

Don’t make me go home, I don’t wanna go

You can’t make me go home, la la la

When I don’t wanna go


Fake diamond rings on every finger

Purple shadows around my eyes

Down in the thirteenth, the fourteenth, the fifteenth arrondissement I waste my money line by line


You can’t make me go home

Don’t make me go home, I don’t wanna go

You can’t make me go home

When I don’t wanna go
