Testo della canzone IN FRANCE THEY KISS ON MAIN STREET di Joni Mitchell
Album: Shadows And Light
With my darling dimestore thief
In the War of Independence
Rock ‘n Roll rang sweet as victory
Under neon signs
A girl was in bloom
And a woman was fading in a suburban room
I said, Take me to the dance
Do you want to dance
I love to dance
And I told him, They don’t take chances
And they seem so removed from romance
They’ve been broken in churches and schools
And molded to middle class circumstance
We were rolling, rolling, rock ‘n rolling

The dance halls and cafes
Feel so wild you could break somebody’s heart
Doing the latest dance craze
Gail and Louise
In those push-up brassieres
Tight dresses and rhinestone rings
Drinking up the band’s beer
Young love was kissing under bridges
Kissing in cars, kissing in cafes
Walking down Main Street
Kisses like bright flags on holidays
In France they kiss on Main Street
Amour, mama, not cheap display
And we were rolling, rolling, rock ‘n rolling

In the pinball arcade
With his head full of pool hall pitches
And songs from the hit parade
He’d be singing Bye, Bye, Love
While he’s racking up his free play
Let those rock ‘n roll choir boys
Come and carry us away
Sometimes Chickie had the car
Or Ron had a car
Or Lead Foot Melvin with his hot-wire head
We’d all go looking for a party
Looking to raise Jesus up from the dead
I’d be kissing in the backstreet
Thrilling to the Brando-like things that he said
And we’d be rolling, rolling, rock ‘n rolling
