David Crosby   Yvette In English  written by Joni Mitchell
                                             David Crosby

Eb      F        Gm
He met her in a french cafe
Eb             F        Gm
She slipped in sideways like a cat
Eb           F    Gm
Sidelong glances, what a wary little stray
Eb         F      Bb
She sticks in his mind like that
        Bb           Gm
Saying 'avez vous un alumette'
         Cm                    Eb
With her lips wrapped around a cigarette
Eb        F              Gm
Yvette in English saying please have this
Eb     F      Gb  Ab   Gm
Little bit of instant bliss.
Eb              F      Gm
He's struggling with a foreign tongue
Eb           F         Gm
Reaching for words and drawing blanks
Eb              F         Gm
A loud mouth is stricken deaf and dumb
Eb   F             Bb
In a bistro on the left bank
   Bb                Gm
If I was a painter   Picasso said
    Cm                   Eb
I'd paint this girl from toe to head
Eb       F                 Gm
Yvette in English, saying  please have this
Eb     F      Gb Ab   Gm
Little bit of instant bliss
Eb            F    Gm
Burgundy nocturne tips and spills
Eb              F             Gm
They move along nicely in the spreading stain
Eb          F
New chills, new thrills
        Gm
For the old uphill battle
Eb         F       Bb
How did he wind up here again
Bb                  Gm
Walking and talking touched and scared
Cm                 Eb
Uninsulated wires  bare
Eb        F               Gm
Yvette in English saying 'please have this
Eb     F      Gb Ab   Gm
Little bit of instant bliss
Eb            F       Gm
What blew her like a leaf his way
Eb        F       Gm
Up in the air and down to earth
Eb        F         Gm
First she flusters, then she frays
Eb          F            Bb
So quick to question her own worth
Bb                      Gm
Her cigarette burns her finger tips
Cm                           Eb
It falls like fireworks, she curses it
Eb         F                 Gm
Sweetly in English she says 'please have this
Eb     F      Gb Ab   Gm
Little bit of instant bliss
Eb          F        Gm
He sees her turn and walk away
Eb         F     Gm
Skittering like a cat on a stone
Eb             F         Gm
Her high heels clicking, what a wary little stray
Eb             F      Bb
She leaves him by the Seine alone.
Bb                    Gm
With  black water and  amber lights
Cm                           Eb
And the bony bridge between left and right
Eb        F                Gm
Yvette in English, saying 'please have this
Eb     F     Gb  Ab   Gm
Little bit of instant bliss
