Was your father a thief? Because he stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.
Equipped with that chat-up line, you can be certain to score in the universal language of love.
So say the authors of a new top 10 of chat-up lines which have been translated from English into Czech, French, Italian, Spanish and German by the publishers Chambers.
If their top-rated suggestion does not have the desired effect, then try in one of six languages to say: "Didn't it hurt when you fell from heaven?"
Or maybe: "You must be tired because you've been running through my mind all day."
Scraping in at Number 10 in the romance parade comes "The only things your eyes haven't told me is your name."
