Paris in the Spring is a popular song composed in 1935, with lyrics by Mack Gordon and music by Harry Revel. It was first introduced by Mary Ellis in the film Paris in Spring. A version was also recorded by Ray Noble and His Orchestra (also in 1935). In 1960, Jo Stafford and her husband Paul Weston recorded a version for their comedy album Jonathan and Darlene Edwards in Paris in which they put their own unique interpretation on the song.

This song title is often used in an informal psychological test. "Paris in the the Spring" is written with an extra "the". A subject is asked to read the text, and will often jump to conclusions and fail to notice the extra "the", especially when there is a line break between the two the's.
