Текст песни:

Well I never thought of myself as a subtle kind of man I dreamed I was alive one time before the world began And every time I walk the street my troubles drag my heels I could not pretend that I wasn’t lost in how it feels I’m gonna be your Elvis I’m gonna be your Steve McQueen I was dead long before I was born, my mother did proclaim Send him back to Jesus, tell him I was not to blame Well well well tell me how can I refuse When every angel left in heaven bet that I would lose The sound of frozen bells and horns was all that I could hear And every word that I ignored was ringing in my ear I could not pretend that I was even half amused When all they ever told me left me shaken and confused I’m gonna be your Elvis I’m gonna be your Steve McQueen I’m gonna be the man you could not dream Well I shaked out right on down the road til no one knew my name The future came and went so fast I almost bet the same I slept a guilty sleep for seven years I was a ghost Of everyone I ever loved I loved myself the most When everyone was breaking up I was breaking down I kept myself amused in high heeled shoes and sequin gowns Those voices on the radio, they all just made me numb So I covered up my ears with bandages and bubble gum And I boarded up the windows and I denied that I was me I sold my brains for science and my soul for security Now I’m a walking shadow of the fool I used to be I heard they held my funeral and there was no one there but me I’m gonna be your Elvis I’m gonna be your Steve McQueen I’m gonna be your terrorist I’m gonna be your Steve McQueen I’m gonna be the man you could not dream The man you could not dream The man you could not dream The man you could not dream The man you could not dream

  • Come now honey I may be just a fool, but I’ve got my principles I’m unlucky You may be alive but you’re not invincible It’s just blindness Kicking up a fuss and it’s not for the first time Oh your highness Someone musta told ya you once were a friend of mine I’ve never been shy but I’ve kept my head down Oh oh oh Knowing about enough to get by this old ghost town Oh oh oh Put on your best dress I’ll take you dancing under the street lights Oh you’re charmless You ain’t too pretty but I’ve seen ya tonight It’s just kindness I was brought up well and I won’t leave you crying Oh your highness You ain’t too bright but as long as you’re trying I’ll do my best to keep my head down Oh oh oh Putting my brains to the test in this old ghost town Oh oh oh I’ve never been shy but I’ve kept my head down Oh oh oh Knowing about enough to get by this old ghost town Oh oh oh I’ll do my best to keep my head down Oh oh oh Putting my brains to the test this in old ghost town Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
  • [Verse 1: Jon Fratelli] Pull me up a chair and keep your money, there's no guarantees Won’t you please forgive me but you know cold blooded women make me sneeze And I’ll kick you out the door if for just one minute you lie And they’ll come crashing through the wall and leave you crawling til’ the minute you die Pour yourself a drink or three and maybe we’ll think clearer for a while You may be an embarrassment but I love the way your clothes are never in style Livings much too easy, dying would be some kind of bore Well, you swear that you’re original but I know I’ve seen those jealous eyes before [Chorus] So steal the watch from off my wrist Oh, and shake me by the hand We could disappear for days And they wouldn’t understand Gypsy blood will get you far And will not miss you when you go [Verse 2] Tear another hole in my brown shoes and we can all sleep for a while Well I told you once before, I love your braces and your hesitant smile But please don’t get me wrong, it's only right that you can stamp on my heart Well I’ve seen you and your friends some place, you know I just can’t tell you apart [Refrain] And though they'll hunt you like a dog they won’t take you alive 'Cause you made them piles of money stacked up, twenty stories high And the boys in every bar, they will not miss you when you go [Chorus] So steal the watch from off my wrist Oh, and shake me by the hand We could disappear for days, and they wouldn’t understand Gypsy blood will get you far, though it’s far away from me Look me up when you get home and maybe then we'll see [Outro] Though they’ll hunt you like a dog, they won’t take you alive 'Cause you made them piles of money Stacked up twenty stories high And the boys from every bar Well, they’ll miss you when you’re gone You can tell a heady tale And we'll all keep screaming on La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la-la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la
