i have none of your venician beauty

or your amsterdam charm but

i have a heart of paris

 

but they say rome was built on ruins

the eternal city

 

i'm the city of one thousand spires

i'm my own cleopatra

the queen and conqueror of

a majestic capital

 

you may be new york

but they say god created the world in six days

and devoted the seventh to Rio

 

i am the carnival queen.
