Mister Do You Know?

 

Mister, do you know how that old song goes?

I used to hear it playing on the radio.

It was a sad, sad song about a love gone wrong.

Hey mister, do you know how it goes?

 

It’s Friday night and I’m singing my songs for my friends.

About nine o’clock an old gray haired man walked in.

He sat at the bar and he had a drink or three.

Looking lost he turned to me and he said…

 

Mister, do you know how that old song goes?

I used to hear it playing on the radio.

It was a sad, sad song about a love gone wrong.

Hey mister, do you know how it goes?

 

Ten o’clock and tears fill the old man’s eyes.

I end my set and I find myself at his side.

He tells me a story ‘bout a love gone bad

and he speaks of the dreams he had not so long ago.

 

Mister, do you know how that old song goes?

I used to hear it playing on the radio.

It was a sad, sad song about a love gone wrong.

Hey mister, do you know how it goes?

 

Then at last it comes to me, and I know what song he means.

So I’m up on the stage and I’m singing it just for my old man.

 

What’ll I do when you are far away and I am blue what’ll I do?

Old Man, this ones for you.
