Lyrics
René and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war
Returned to their hotel suite
And they unlocked the door
Easily losing their evening clothes
They danced by the light of the moon
To the Penguins, the Moonglows
The Orioles, and The Five Satins
The deep forbidden music
They'd been longing for
René and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war

René and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war
Were strolling down Christopher Street
When they stopped in a men's store
With all of the mannequins dressed in the style
That brought tears to their immigrant eyes
Just like The Penguins, the Moonglows
The Orioles, The Five Satins
The easy stream of laughter
Floating through the air
René and Georgette Magritte
With their dog après la guerre

Side by side
They fell asleep
Decades gliding by like Indians
Time is cheap
When they wake up they will find
All their personal belongings
Have intertwined
Whoa-oh

René and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war
Were dining with the power elite
And they peeked in their bedroom drawer
And what do you think
They found hidden away
In the cabinet cold of their hearts?
The Penguins, the Moonglows
The Orioles, and Five Satins
For now and ever after
As it was before
René and Georgette Magritte
With their dog after the war
