VP_009495 Verse 1Willie Earl met a sweet young girl one day in France, her naughty little glance, put Willie in a trance; WIllie Earl couldn't understand her talk you see, He only knew two words in French That he learned in the trench, They were "oo-la-la!" and "wee-wee." They would spoon beneath the moon above; It was fun to hear them making love. Chorus 1She'd say, "compronay voo, papa?" and he'd say "oo-la-la! wee-wee," She'd smile and whisper "mercy bacoo," He'd answer "I don't mind if I do." She'd say, "if you be my papa, then I will be your macherie" She'd pinch his cheek and say "you keskasay," He'd say "not now, dear, but later I may;" Then she'd say, "compronay voo, papa?" and he'd say "oo-la-la! wee-wee." Chorus 2She'd say, "compronay voo, papa?" and he'd say "oo-la-la! wee-wee," She'd say "come see" and then roll her eyes, He'd answer, "baby you'd be surprised." Each ev'ning they would promenade, upon ze boulevard, you see; One day at lunch, she said "café voo-la," He said "my dear, don't forget where you are;" Then she'd say, "Compronay voo, papa?" and he'd say "oo-la-la! wee-wee."
