Donate to the Beirut Emergency Appeal

We just wrote and recorded this song for fun. But if it bought a smile to your face, a tear to your eye, a lump to your throat, a twitch to your loins or stimulated your gag reflex, please consider donating to the Red Cross Beirut Emergency Appeal. Lebanon hosts the highest number of refugees per capita in the world, has been let down by corrupt leaders time and time again and recently suffered a terrible explosion that destroyed its port and food supplies.

Make a donation.

Or do another nice thing

Or, if you prefer to donate closer to home, please give a little something to a local food bank, buy a treat for a health worker you know, or just be extra-lovely to someone near to you.

Very awesome lyrics

I was melancholy in gay Paris.
In the city of romance, love had passed over me.
Weeping in my attic in Montmartre
dreaming of a de Beauvoir to my J.P. Sartre.
Oh, then I saw you there
your eyes had more poetry than Beaudelaire.
And I knew that you were the only one
Who could be the Joséphine to my Napoléon.

Saperlipopette, I'm so glad we met,
Please, let me eat your cake, ma petite Antoinette!
Saperlipopette, And now, I'm your pet.
Say I'm yours! Ça alors! Saperlipopette.

Oh baby, never doubt I love you, it's a certainty.
I'll give you liberté, egalité for eternity.
When life terrorizes like Robespierre
I’ll bring you more joy than Molière.
Oh, I just can't believe
the way you elevate my joie de vivre.
Any time that I'm feeling low,
you can chew my rosbif - I'll taste your escargot!

Saperlipopette, I’m so glad we met
Every time you kiss me, it’s the best kiss yet.
Saperlipopette, I can’t forget
the way you make me feel, ooh, Saperlipopette.

I was crusin’ with my crew down in Montmartre
when I saw you, and you stole my heart there.
Your love’s a drug and I need my next hit;
I need your promise that you won’t Brexit.
I’m putting my cards sur la table
Monsieur, you’re so formidable.
I didn’t want amour, but babe you bet,
Mister, je t’aime, Saperlipopette.

Saperlipopette, I’m so glad we met
I'm un papillon, in your net
Saperlipopette, like Lafayette
You conquered my heart, ooh! Saperlipopette!

Saperlipopette, I’m so glad we met
I want Marmite, mange ma tartiflette!
Saperlipoppete, I can’t forget
how you make me feel, ooh, Saperlipopette.

Saperlipopette, oh the thrills I get
Keep on doin’ what you’re doin’, Non, don’t arrête!
Saperlipopette, I’ve got no regrets!
Je ne regrette rien, Saperlipopette.

Who the அखกਖੀ did this?

DELUXEmbourg is the name of a pan-European duo, whose mission is to bring joy, peace and love to the world through the ancient French philosophy of saperlipopette. We believe the best way to do this is to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest. We call on the Eurovision organisers to abolish the rule that an entry must be tied to one particular country, as this promotes the evil of nationalism, and allow DELUXEmbourg to compete. Or just declare us the winners already.
