The M word

So you're not a mademoiselle,
that much is clear.
If I called you a madame
would you mind –
before I open my big trap
and fall foul of everyone
from Brest to Brussels?

And shall I then address you
as 'tu' or 'vous'?
You see, I'd hate to offend,
me a mere male and all.
Yes, this tight rope I walk
would be lethal –
if I had any balls
