The Ballad of Michael Valentine Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Michael plays with stars
Soul Sister won't you take a ride in his car
Late to call
When you wanted to be all
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
You got it bad, but you know it's true
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
We finally caught a train to Memphis
Where everybody talks the same
Those blue suede babies
All know my name
Verse 6
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?
Verse 7
We ended up in North Dakota
Although my heart's in Mexico
My
All went to Soho
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
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 in the sun
And I've got a cold tale left to write
Verse 11
Well uh oh
I know he's gonna be there tonight
