Killers — The Ballad Of Michael Valentine lyrics

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 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 we unite?
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/killers-the-ballad-of-michael-valentine-lyrics.html ]
We ended up in North Dakota
Although my heart's in Mexico
My munequita
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 cold tale left to write

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