Mister Do You Know?

 

CHORUS:

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?

 

VERSE 1:

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…

 

CHORUS:

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?

 

VERSE 2:

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.

 

CHORUS:

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?

 

BRIDGE:

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.

 

OUTRO:

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

Old Man, this ones for you.
