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


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
