My Mother Was a Chinese Trapeze Artist (4:22)

We don't have a wiki here yet...

Lyrics

My mother was a Chinese trapeze artist, in pre-war Paris
Smuggling bombs for the underground
And she met my father at a fete in Aix-en-Provnence
He was disguised as a Russian cadet in the employ of the Axis

  • This song is perfect.
  • "But sometimes I long to be landlocked/And to work in a bakery." This song keeps popping into my head at the most unlikely moments.
