    I'm in Paris, won't be here long
    But after all it's Paris, guess I'd better write a song
    It's so wonderful, so magical, so romantic
    Note to self to change that line, it's too pedantic

    But it's Paris, I've come so far
    I've made it all the way from the bed
    To my guitar
    You can call me doom and gloom
    There ain't no way I'm stepping outside the hotel room

    I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner
    I'm terrified of what's outside beyond that door
    I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner
    A prisoner of 424

    Brought a girl to Paris, she didn't like the food
    She said the time change was killing her
    The waiters were rude
    But if she was here now, she'd make this all go away
    She'd say baby let's pretend we're not in Paris for the day

    I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner
    I'm terrified of what's outside beyond that door
    I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner
    A prisoner in room 424

    I should visit Saint-Germain des Pres
    Take a walk, down the Champs Elysees
    But this room is the only place to hide
    From the gargoyles, waiting just outside

    I'm in Paris, I see angels in the wall
    I hear Arabians running in the hall
    See I'm in this room and this room is who I am
    And if you don't like that I don't' give
    A good God Notre Dame

    I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner
    I'm terrified of what's outside beyond that door
    I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner
    A big strong guy like me, imagine that
    I'm a prisoner, I'm a prisoner
    A prisoner of quatre deux qua
