Mr. Jones Lyrics

Mr. Jones - Counting Crows (数乌鸦)

Sha la la la la la la - uh uh

 

I was down at the New Amsterdam

 

Staring at this yellow-haired girl

Mr Jones strikes up a conversation

 

With this black-haired flamenco dancer

You look

She dances while her father plays guitar

She's suddenly beautiful

We all want something beautiful

 

And I wish I was beautiful

So come dance this silence down

Through the morning

 

Sha la la la la la la

 

Cut up Maria

 

Show me some of them Spanish dances

 

Pass me a bottle Mr Jones

 

Believe in me

 

Help me believe in anything

 

Cause I I want to be someone who believes

 

Mr Jones and me tell each other fairy tales

Stare at the beautiful women

 

"She's looking at you

Ah no no she's looking at me "

Smiling in the bright lights

 

Coming through in stereo

 

When everybody loves you

 

You can never be lonely

Well I will paint my picture

 

Paint myself in

Blue and red and black and gray

All of the beautiful colors

Are very very meaningful

 

Yeah well you know

Gray is my favorite color

I felt so symbolic yesterday

If I knew Picasso

 

I would buy myself a gray guitar and play

Mr Jones and me look into the future

 

Stare at the beautiful women

 

"She's looking at you

I don't think so She's looking at me "

Standing in the spotlight

 

I bought myself a gray guitar

When everybody loves me

 

I will never be lonely

 

I will never be lonely

 

So I will never be lonely

 

I want to be a lion

 

Everybody wants to pass as cats

We all want to be big big stars

 

But we got different

Reasons for that

 

Believe in me

 

Because I don't believe in anything

 

And I I want to be someone to believe

To believe

To believe

 

Mr Jones and me stumbling

Through the barrio

 

Yeah we stare at the beautiful women

 

"She's perfect for you

Man there's got to be

Somebody for me "

I want to be Bob Dylan

 

Mr Jones wishes

He was someone just a little more

Funky

When everybody loves you son

That's just about as

Funky as you can be

Mr Jones and me staring at the video

 

When I look at the television

I want to see me staring

Right back at me

We all want to be big stars

But we don't know why

And we don't know how

But when everybody loves me

I wanna be just

About as happy as I can be

Mr Jones and me

 

 

We're gonna be big stars
