    Carla Bruni's ode to France's first man

    London (ANI): French first lady Carla Bruni croons about her love for husband Nicolas Sarkozy in her third album to be released in July. In her new album the 40-year-old former model refers to the couple's foreign trips in her cover of Bob Dylan's 'You Belong to Me'.

    The Italian model's agent Bertrand de Labbey revealed that the she wrote the lyrics to most of the songs on the album with blatant references to exotic destinations she and the French President visited last year during their lightning romance, reports the Telegraph.

    "See the pyramids along the Nile... Just remember darling, all the while, you belong to me," she sings in the Dylan song. The President had proposed Bruni in Egypt with a pink heart-shaped diamond Dior engagement ring and married in Paris on Feb 2, just three months after first meeting.

    The Dylan lyrics "See the market place in old Algiers... Just remember till your dream appears, You belong to me," is believed to refer to the President's trip to Algeria, when he left his fiancee alone back in Paris amid controversy over their public displays of affection.

    The final lines "Fly the ocean in a silver plane... Just remember till you're home again... You belong to me" is said to refer Mr Sarkozy's frequent overseas trips on the presidential jet.

    According to a French daily France-Soir, "Bruni is an intelligent woman and is well aware of all the references to her own life and her romance with the president. She is far too clever for this to be a coincidence".

    Among the 14 tracks there is a song called Ma Came (My Junk) that refers to drugs that is in fact a love song. The album also features a piece based on a poem by French author Michel Houellebecq.
