Lyrics

The first and second lines of the first verse and the first line of the chorus of Sympathique are taken from Guillaume Apollinaire's poem "Hôtel" from Le guetteur mélancolique. The French composer Francis Poulenc used that poem as lyrics for his 1940 composition Banalités, FP 107 : II. Hôtel.
