The Caveau de la Huchette is a famous jazz club near to Notre Dame cathedral. It started its life as a jazz club in 1949 and over the years has hosted performances by many great artists. The building in which the club is housed dates back to the 1550’s.

Thanks go to the Bakers Boy for the trumpet and to Snowflake for the beautifully wistful vocal additions.

He met her in a parking lot in France
He watched her as she beautifully danced
Her hair in jet black ringlets fell
They offered up a dangerous spell
There was more to her than beauty that was a fact
And he was always looking forward never back

Later in the Caveau de la Huchette
He sang his songs and soaked up all their praise
Then in the crowd he saw her face
She raised her hand and gave a waive
But she disappeared before he had a chance
There never was to be a fine romance

Where lovers walk the ground is built on glass
And very few are offered up the chance
To see the golden carousel
Upon which the riders sell
There love for one more moment from the past
He knew it was no more than circumstance
