Was your father a thief? Because he stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.
Equipped with that pick-up line, you can be certain to score in the universal language of love. So say the authors of a new top 10 list of pick-up lines which have been translated from English into Czech, French, Italian, Spanish and German by the publishers Chambers.
Taking inspiration from its new range of pocket-sized phrasebooks, Chambers compiled its own list of the definitive top 10 pick-up lines.
The UK publisher picked the lines from the assorted phrase books and compiled their own light-hearted list, to assist vacationers heading out to European destinations this summer.
Anna Stevenson, from Chambers Harrap, said "The French and Italians are especially renowned for their romantic ways but it seems that chat-up lines are the same no matter what language you are speaking."
"Our chat-up lines show budding English- speaking Romeos how to impress the girl of their dreams whatever country she is from, but it also allows British women to wise up to the charms and cheeky ways of foreign suitors," said Stevenson.
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."
