Not tonight josephine.
in an army's strength therein
lies the denouement.
From here you're haunting me.
By the Seine so beautiful, only
not to be of use-- impossible.
So strange, victory- 1200 spires

only not to be of use- impossible.
In the last extremity -- to
advance or not to advance- I
hear you laughing
Even still you're calling me
"Not tonight, not tonight not tonight" Josephine
