The Ballad of Michael Valentine

Text písně The Ballad of Michael Valentine

Michael plays with stars
Soul Sister won't you take a ride in his car
Late to call
When you wanted to be all 
Baby baby don't be so shy
Rock children hold your heads up high
In the night while I try
And tell the ballad of Valentine 


You got it bad, but you know it's true 


I caught up with a friend in Dallas
We took a trip to New Orleans
Those black-eyed ladies
Won't say they're sorry 


We finally caught a train to Memphis
Where everybody talks the same
Those blue suede babies
All know my name 


And I said hold tight
Can't you see it's hurting me
But I've got the buzz
Like Marlon Brando
Michael Valentine, can't we unite? 


We ended up in North Dakota
Although my heart's in Mexico
My muñequita Abre tus ojos 
All went to Soho 


With your new suit, and your black tie
Hold on, you're just a gambling man, all proper like
I broke to the right and I caught your eye
Shut your mouth and wave goodbye
Tonight, I ain't gonna let you rain on this parade 


And I said hold tight
Can't you see it's hurting me
But I've got the buzz
Like Marlon Brando
Straight faced with misery tonight 


And I will not lie when I say I ain't cold no more
But I've got the buzz
Like Greta Garbo
Walking forwards to the sun
And I've got a coat tail left to ride 


Well uh oh
I know he's gonna be there tonight
