Up until that time all Starstedt does is playfully establish how well he knows this girl. You go to the embassy parties Where you talk in Russian and Greek And the young men who move in your circles They hang on every word you speak, yes they do. But he's not yet ready to show his hand, and so he gives us a sense of the changing seasons in his subject's life : When you go on your summer vacation You go to Juan-les-Pins With your carefully designed topless swimsuit You get an even suntan on your back and on your legs And when the snow falls you're found in Saint Moritz With the others of the jet set And you sip your Napoleon Brandy But you never get your lips wet - no, you don't. Chorus You're in between twenty and thiry A very desirable age. So she talks like Marlene Dietrich, the husky Teuton, and she dances like Zizi Jeanmaire, the great French ballerina, and her clothes are all made by Pierre Balmain, the Paris couturier. I made that up because I was under pressure to come up with an explanation. You talk like Marlène Dietrich And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire Your clothes are all made by Balmain And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes there are You live in a fancy apartment Off the Boulevard Saint-Michel Where you keep your Rolling Stones records And a friend of Sacha Distel, yes you do But where do you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed Tell me the thoughts that surround you I want to look inside your head, yes I do I've seen all your qualifications You got from the Sorbonne And the painting you stole from Picasso Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does When you go on your summer vacation you go to Juan-les-Pins With your carefully designed topless swimsuit You get an even sun tan, on your back and on your legs When the snow falls you're found in Saint Moritz With the others of the jet-set And you sip your Napoleon brandy But you never get your lips wet, no you don't But where do you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you I want to look inside your head, yes I do Your name, it is heard in high places You know the Aga Khan He sent you a racehorse for Christmas And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh ahaha They say that when you get married It'll be to a millionaire But they don't realise where you came from And I wonder if they really care or give a damn Where do you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed Tell me the thoughts that surround you I want to look inside your head, yes I do I remember the back streets of Naples Two children begging in rags Both touched with a burning ambition To shake off their lowly born tags, and they try So look into my face, Marie-Claire And remember just who you are Then go and forget me forever But I know you still bear the scar deep inside, yes you do I know where you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed I know the thoughts that surround you Cause I can look inside your head.

And, after all these bright specifics, Sarstedt gets to the point with a killer chorus : Where Do You Go To, My Lovely When you're alone in your bed? It isn't about Sophia Loren, although I would have thought about her because she was very famous and she's in the song in spirit. Marie-Claire was meant to be a generic European girl but if she was based on anybody it was my then girlfriend Anita Atke. You talk like Marlene Dietrich And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire Your clothes are all made by Balmain And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes there are. That'd be enough for most of us. But at evening's end where do you go to? And now, having painted the scene in very vivid colors, it's time for Sarstedt to take the story back to its monochrome origins: I remember the back streets of Naples Two children begging in rags Both touched with a burning ambition To shake off their lowly-born tags. In 1997, for his album England's Lane, Sarstedt wrote a sequel, Last Of The Breed, catching up with Marie-Claire all these years later.

But where do you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed Tell me the thoughts that surround you I want to look inside your head, yes i do. The moment passes: Balmain is bankrupt, Sacha Distel died, the Aga Khan got very boring. They say that when you get married, It'll be to a millionaire, But they don't realise where you came from, And I wonder if they really care, or give a darn. But the British chartologists Tim and Jo Rice and Paul Gambaccini insist that the Macca boys only got to the top as part of groups. Last 2 parts of the song say it all basically. Many Thanks Richard and Theresa Many Thanks Richard and Theresa hey Richard and Theresa I do not think an autor would just mention Marie-Claire as MarieClaire herself in a poem or song.

You're in between 20 and 30 A very desirable age Your body is firm and inviting But you live on a glittering stage, yes you do, yes you do. I've seen all your qualifications that you got from the Sorbonne And the painting you stole from Picasso. It's a nice thought - even if, from time to time, it reminds me of a line Jack Jones liked to use in his stage act: Whenever this whole crazy phony showbusiness scene gets too much for me and I need to connect with my roots and get back to what's real, I return to the small town where I grew up - Hollywood. It's such an unusual point of view for a pop song: the glamorous life viewed by a childhood friend left far behind. ~There's more French music - La Vie en rose and Sous le ciel de Paris - elsewhere on Steyn's Song of the Week, this time.

Your clothes are all made by Balmain, And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes there are. You're body is firm and inviting, but you live on a glittering stage. That would probably have killed the sales. But lightning doesn't strike twice, and what came so effortlessly in 1966 seems very labored 30 years later. But where do you go to my lovely.

The Number One singles that preceded and succeeded it are in the vernacular of the day - If Paradise Is Half As Nice Amen Corner and I Heard It Through The Grapevine Marvin Gaye - pure Sixties pop for better or worse.
