Mr. Rock And Roll
Amy Macdonald


So-called Mr Rock & Roll
Is dancing on his own again
Talking on his phone again
To someone who tells him that his balance is low
He's got nowhere to go, he's on his own again

Rock Chick of the century
Is acting like she used to be
Dancing like there's no-one there
Before she never seemed to care
Now she wouldn't dare
It's so Rock & Roll to be alone

And they'll meet one day far away
And say, I wish I was something more
And they'll meet one day far away
And say, I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before

Mrs Black & White she's never seen a shade of grey
Always something on her mind
Every single day
But now she's lost her way
And where does she go from here

Mr. Multicultural sees all that one can see
He's living proof of someone very different to me
But now he wants to be free
Free so he can see

And they'll meet one day far away
And say, I wish I was something more
And they'll meet one day far away
And say, I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before

He'll say, I wish I knew you
I wish I met you when time was still on my side
She'll say, I wish I knew you
I wish I loved you before I was his bride

And so they must depart
Two many more broken hearts
But I've seen that all before
In T.V, books, and film and more
And there's a happy ending
Every single day

And they'll meet one day far away
And say, I wish I was something more
And they'll meet one day far away
And say, I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before
