Mr. Jones Lyrics

Artist: Counting Crows
Album: August And Everything After

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
She dances while his father plays guitar
She's suddenly beautiful
We all want something beautiful
I wish I was beautiful
So come dance this silence down through the morning
Cut Maria! Show me some of them Spanish dances
Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Believe in me
Help me believe in anything
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

I will paint my picture
Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
All of the beautiful colors are very very meaningful
Grey 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.
Uh, 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 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 thatBelieve in me because I don't believe in anything
and I want to be someone 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 funky
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'm going to be just about as happy as can be
Mr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars..

Mr. Jones was a friend of the singer ( and part of the group I belive ) at the time he wrote the song cos when the song become famous there were no friends anymore.

Mr Jones was one of the early members of Counting Crows, a bassist and cousin of the original Drummer. The song is about starting musicians unrealistic dreams.

by Art91 on 11/17/2008 5:59pm
Mr. Jones is his best friend from when he wast famous, they'd go to bars and imagine that if they where famous they'd be able to pick up girls.

Mr Jones... Bob Dylan


Bob had a really great song about Mr Jones... It's called "Ballad of a Thin Man"... look it up.. this song is like a sequel.

You kids! :)
by Jake on 4/12/2009 11:05am
Bob Dylan wrote a song years ago called "The Ballad of Thin Man". Mr. Jones was the main character of that song. You could look it up...
by issi on 4/12/2009 11:48am
words are symbolic and measured by individually...different reasons for that....
by chad on 4/13/2009 11:09pm
Mr Jones is a bartender who realizes the music has swept a certain flamenco dancer off her feet. It's as if the bartender must become a musician to woo her away from the music- played by his father I believe....
by :putnam: on 4/18/2009 8:21pm
He's talking more generally about how he can't find any truth in the world (he can't believe in anything) He feels lonely because he can't find anyone who shares these views and could show him the light/give him something to believe in. The whole time he is melancholy because he sees everyone else such as Mr. Jones finding companionship and happiness but he is still stuck being lonely and misunderstood, thats a rather deeper look then anyone really cares for but thats how I see it
by johnny57 on 5/2/2009 1:03pm
it' s a fucking great song but impossible to sing
by magenta fluxx on 5/11/2009 4:03am

Gr8 song.
by Mike Masuda on 6/30/2009 5:56pm
David Serva is the stage name of a famous flamenco guitarist in the SF Bay Area. His son plays in Counting Crows. One day, the father and son, along with another bandmate went out to a local flamenco hangout, they saw a flamenco dancer named Fibi (I performed with her once a while back)--the song is about their experience that night hanging out with David Serva--who's birth name is David Jones. True story.

by AJ on 9/6/2009 3:29pm
i read that this song was about heroin in a book, but the lead singer explains it was based on the night he spent with his mate in a bar in san francisco....but obv he wouldnt say it was about heroin anyway...what dya reckon?is there any reference to heroin at all?
by R. Zimmerman on 9/7/2009 11:26am
He's so suicidal, just like Dylan's Mr. Jones (Beatles).

Most of you are wrong.
Mr. Jones is the dude from Dylan's "Ballad of a Thin Man".
by Sexscape Prophet on 11/25/2009 9:02pm
I realize it's his friend, but when I first heard this song I thought Mr. Jones was a type of liquor, and I like it better that way.
by Nicky12 on 12/8/2009 11:31am
ok really i love this song but the lyrics are kinda wrong

by Tom on 3/28/2010 6:20am
The lyrics are somewhat wrong, but you can easily hear the missing words from the song in the song itself, so it's no problem. Thank you for the lyrics, they will help me rise from any downfall past present or coming.
by haha on 4/7/2010 3:22am
Lmao at the guy who put Bob Dylan : I want to be Mr. Jones.
by jbrook8 on 4/11/2010 2:19am
Bob Dylan stuck it to Mr. Jones in "Ballad of a Thin Man". And if you read between the lines of this song you will see Mr. Jones is being mocked still. Stick it to the man!!!

some of the lyrics are incorrect. Mr. Jones can be 1 of 3 things: the first is his friend, the second is alcohol and the third is his dick.
by Max on 5/23/2010 10:12pm
This song is about his dick (Mr. Jones) good song though

by X! on 7/27/2010 5:04am
this song is about dreams and going into whatever it is that seizes your heart, hence the lines "I wanna be a lion" and "I wanna ne Bob Dylan", but in the same breath its also precautionary because of how one might be misguided bout some of these things and how hollow they might be, hence the repeated line "when everybody loves me, I'll never be lonely"
by I Love You Dammit! on 8/15/2010 12:52pm
He wrote this song about his dick.
by hahahahha on 8/29/2010 3:10pm

by Dave Tolnay on 8/29/2010 5:43pm
Yes, this is a monument of a song for me. It tells a tale of a young lion wanting his dreams to be real and he is closing in on them..

Mr. Jones is a real person who Adam duritz was friends with it's about how "silly and sad" aspiring young artists dreams can be of fame and fortune and the assumption that ultimately happiness is automaticcally and instantly achieved the moment u hit fame or rock star status. The crows didn't expect this to be such a hit either.

Mr. Jones is Marty Jones of The Himalayans

Great song. I love hearing it.

Sin saber lo que dice la letra, esta canción siempre me ha recordado como a un hombre que se siente solo, que necesita ser amado, confiar en alguien ... Se me pone la carne de gallina cuando la oigo. Quizà es porqueme siento reflejado.

I saw an interview with that guy from counting crows and he said he and his friend whose last name is jones were saying how if they were rockstars and/or famous they could go up and talk to these girls. Great song.

great song , very difficult to sing though guitar is easy
by Andy on 9/3/2011 3:23pm
Mr. Jones is Marty Jones... Adam Duritz friend, and a member of Adam's previous band The Himalayans (as well as the bassist for the song: "Sordid Humor - Barbarossa")


also the lyrics are wrong.

by tp on 9/17/2011 4:32pm
Isn't it obvious? Mr. Jones is his weenie.

This music is crap.
by Uli on 12/1/2011 10:08am
I listened to it many times in August.. in Spain, a very symbolic song for me, witnessed sad and a kind of funky moments too... mostly sad....... but I love this song!!
by Mickey on 1/5/2012 1:26am
My friend asked if the song was about his weener. I didn't think so, but it is hard to argue with.

This song has been stuck in my head the last two weeks. I must have heard it somewhere in the background, where I picked it up again.

Great song.

the lyrics are f****** wrong
by khocccccc on 1/30/2012 10:07am
Lyrics aren't right... to stop all the confusion.. mr. Jones is david jones, a famous flamenco guitarist who the father of the lead singer's best friend, Marvin jones.. hence why the song starts out about flamenco dancers at the new amsterdam...
by mike_hunt on 2/5/2012 10:28pm

Mr Jones is actually Davey Jones, who recently passed away.
by Anon. on 4/22/2012 5:58pm
This song is about "jonesing" something. It's about things that you wish for, or want.

Mike Jones tried to get famous but couldn't so he went back in time and made them write a song about him.
by chad on 7/5/2012 10:00pm
slightly wrong lyrics in 2 places but better than most sites if your not gonna play it then they're good enough
by seth on 7/7/2012 5:25pm
Didn't do a very good job at the lyric's did ya!
by Jim meehan on 8/14/2012 10:55pm
Its about a bob dylan song called mr.jones
by amba2 on 8/21/2012 1:42pm
Whoever wrote this was incapable of thinking more than three words in advance at any given point. Or maybe they played that game that each person says the next word to form a sentence. Love the music though. While the lyrics aren't about drugs, they could also very well be a result of unfortunate brain damage, caused by them.
by krazy on 9/20/2012 5:42am
Mr. Jones, as in " Jonsing for drugs" When Mr. Jones is on board you see the world differently, perhaps halucinate.

He Ponders, Do people like him or the drugs he is high and think they do
by ricardo on 1/24/2013 6:24pm
