Here are the lyrics that pulled up on Google (listening as I'm reading them, I noticed a few possible minor errors, but nothing egregious):

Down in Paris they lose their ballas and their lipdamales in the night
And stumbling through the street they say, Sir do you have a light?
And if you do then you're my friend
And if you don't then you're my foe
And if you are a deity of any sort then please don't go

Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ah ah ah
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas

Down in Lexington they walk in new shoes stuck to aging feet
And close their eyes and open
And recognize the aging street
And think about the things were right
When they were young and veins were tight
And if you are the ghost of Christmas past
Then won't you stay the night

Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ah ah ah
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ooh ooh ooh
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ah ah ah
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas

Down in Bronxy Bronx the kids go sledding
Down snow covered slopes and frozen noses, frozen toes
And the frozen city starts to glow
And yes they know it will pass
And yes they know New York will thaw
But if you're a friend of any sort
Then play along and catch a cold

Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ah ah ah
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ooh ooh ooh
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ah ah ah
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas

I love Paris in the rain, I love Paris in the rain
I love I love I Love in the rain
I love Paris in the rain, I love Paris in the rain
And I Love I love I love in the rain
I love I love I love in the rain
Down in Paris they walk fast
That is unless they're walking slow
And in cafe's they look away
That is unless they look right in
And in the corners I'm getting lost
That is unless I'm getting found
And if you are the ghost of New York City
Then won't you stick around

Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ah ah ah
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ooh ooh ooh
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas ah ah ah
Ne Me Quitte Pas mon cher
Ne Me Quitte Pas

I love Paris in the rain, I love Paris in the rain
I love I love I love in the rain
I love Paris in the rain, I love Paris in the rain
I love I love I love in the rain
And I love I love I love in the rain
I like her music. Yes, the show got her into the mainstream, but she's genuinely good.
Not my kitty paw, monster!
Not my kitty paw, ah ah ah! 
Caught my attention right away. Noticed the Russian accent. I like it!
"Ne me quitte pas mon Cher,
Ne me quitte pas
Ah Ah, ne me quitte pas mon Cher,
Ne me quitte pas"
Cool little Ska section ,there ; >
I love Paris in the rain....

Such narrow minds.
 
There are certainly plenty of examples of "handing out judgement" to choose from.

Agreed.  I can't bear her material, but I just PSD as necessary.  And don't disrespect the cookies, please.



The great thing is, you can skip to the next song. Just push the button if it's so hard on your ears. That's what I did.

Fun and spunky song.  Enjoying a beat of silly, upbeat stuff right now.  Good for my head and heart.
I do not care for this at all.

Okay, I'm just a little fuzzy on this whole good/bad thing.

As for me, I like Regina.  It's a good thing.
This is so much fun! I love the brass and Regina's quirky (as usual) vocals. I imagine people not liking the song look like this.
