"Dominique" by The Singing Non

---with apologies to "Dominique" by the Singing Nun

Chorus:

Dominique, -nique, -nique

Il attaqua la femme de chambre

Quand il sortit en déshabille

De sa luxe salle de bain

Il scandalisa le Sofitel

Mais c'est la conduite usuelle

Mais c'est la conduite usuelle*

In the merry month of May

As our little tale will tell

Banker Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Came to New York's Sofitel

Dominique, -nique, -nique

Il attaqua la femme de chambre

Quand il sortit en déshabille

De sa luxe salle de bain

Il scandalisa le Sofitel

Mais c'est la conduite usuelle

Mais c'est la conduite usuelle

Dominique he was a banker

Heading up the IMF

He'd loan money to the Third World

'Til they hadn't a thing left

Chorus

Dominique was on the short list

To be President of France

But his conduct at the Sofitel

Has made him lose his chance

Chorus

Though he has a wife and children

(It was widely known in France)

When he met women, Dominique

Couldn't keep it in his pants

Chorus

The Sofitel maid came to his room

He attacked her in the nude

He must have thought she was a country

Like the ones that he had screwed

Chorus

Then he scampered for an airplane

'Cause France doesn't extradite

But they took him down to Rikers

And they made him stay the night

Chorus

Yes, this caviar Socialist

Thought from this crime he could coast

But he had to trade haute cuisine

For some creamed chipped beef on toast

Chorus

Now Dominique is out on bail

In a townhouse, living large

Trying to bribe the maid's family

So that she'll drop the charge

Chorus

What will happen at his trial

Only time and law can say

But Dominique may soon be headed

For a lengthy prison stay

Chorus

Yes, Dominique may find out

What it costs to scratch an itch

And that if you assault women

You'll become a prison bitch

Chorus

*Translation:

Dominique, -nique, -nique

He attacked the chambermaid

When he emerged undressed

From his luxurious bathroom

He scandalized the Sofitel

But it was his usual behavior

But it was his usual behavior
