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..

the lyrics were abou75% right
mr. jones is a friend of his that he used to go to the bar and drink with all the time. He wrote this song because they would always say to eachother that if htey were rockstars they would go hit on these girls that they didnt have the courage to hit on at that time
Got to love it!!!!!

Great song, so meaningful. Mr. Jones was Adam's friend and band mate when he was in The Himalayans.
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.

I have really enjoyed the songs that you have done, esp. Mr. Jones keep up the good work and hope to see you in concert soon, if you ever go to the city of Ventura, California...
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.

This song is truly great! the lyrics are so beautiful u dont get lyrics like this nowadays
is it really 'cut maria'? i thought it was 'caught up in rio'..makes more sense with the flamenco dancers and what not

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! :)
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...
words are symbolic and measured by individually...different reasons for that....
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....
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
it' s a fucking great song but impossible to sing
putnam I loved your thoughts..I see most of it in this song too!!! I want to buy myself a guitar too hahahahahahah :P
Love love love love love this song always will must amazing classic ever. Love ittttttttt!!!!!¡¡¡¡¡
I like this x) song ...
lovely lovely song and especially love people's interpretations
my brother m-bates to this song
Simple simple chord progression... the lyrics and the melody turned this song into a classic...
Check out Hanging Around by the Coutning Crows too
I love this song, it reminds me of my final year in high school. We used to sing together with my friends , but damn it is quite dificult to sing it....
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.
that's not the right lyric
Very good song, thanks for the lyrics!
Counting Crows and Adam Duritz for ever!
When everybody loves you, son, that's just about as funky as you can be
This song is awesome, and great to sing - if you can time it! Awesome, awesome song... Also 'We didn't start the fire' if great too. Try the Hoosiers' version...
Mr. Jones is Marty Jones.
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?
He's so suicidal, just like Dylan's Mr. Jones (Beatles).
exelente tema,Amo COUNTING CROWS
where's "NEW AMSTERDAM"?
<3. This song!
i really love this song.. i love playing this when me en my bf are together while drving.. i dont know but i dedicated this song to my bf though its not related to us,lolz. i love counting crows!
This song isn't impossible to sing lol. I sing it a lot, I love the way it sounds; my li'l bro plays it quite well and singin' it together is pretty dang fun. "With your powers combined, I am... Captain PLANET!"
I never wear condoms!!!
i love this song so much, it reminds me of when i was back at college:)
Most of you are wrong.
Mr. Jones is the dude from Dylan's "Ballad of a Thin Man".
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.
ok really i love this song but the lyrics are kinda wrong
I LOVED THIS SONG EVER SINCE I WAS 8 YEARS OLD. BELLISSIMO!!!
All I have to say, is all of you people leaving stupid comments, you should stop. This is about music, lyrics, understanding, and passion. Not about stupid shit. Go to Twitter or something for that.
Mr cock and me, tell eachother farie tales and stare at the busefitld cocks i want cock i loce it gimmememememememe
Mr. Jones is Mr. One
Niceeee song!!! Love it!!
I wanna be a lion too!!!
its a nice leter hehe i speak spanish i dont entender that aguante hablar español jeje is the number 5 in the top musics of 90s.....---
these lyrics are some of the least accurate I have ever seen. Did the transcriber even listen to the song? Apparently not.
great and perfect song
hey diego.... FUCK YOU
I want to be Mr. Jones
I don´t like the lyrics!!! the music is cool!!!
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.
Lmao at the guy who put Bob Dylan : I want to be Mr. Jones.
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!!!
no la entiendo, pero me encanta
das ist sehr gut
QUE LINDA CANCION
MR JONES PARA MI QUE VENDIA MOTA
gracias... excelente!!!! Adelante...
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.
This song is about his dick (Mr. Jones) good song though
the letter is a asshole
Mr Jones is actually the same guy, only drunk, (on quervo).
Mr Jones is actually the same guy, only drunk, (on cuervo).
poopedy poop poop
The best song ever!!!
I´m from Argentina
mr. jones is his imaginary friends. and these lyrics suck. great song...
huhu..damn yeah mr jones.
ME ENCANTA .... DESPIERTO CON MR. JONES .... II'S GREAT ¡¡¡¡
ADORO ESTA CANCION ME HACE VIBRAR Y LLORAR AL MISMO TIEMPO... LOS SUEÑOS, LOS ANHELOS LA AMISTAD!!!!!!!!!!! LA AMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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"
He wrote this song about his dick.
get the lyrics right you loser ;)
I LOVE THIS SONG
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..
I love with all my heart and soul this song, it is great. I remenber when I was studying at the ICPNA in Peru
quien se esta acordando de mi
lkiiuhygtdrdgbuyf hbyvctymuij uf0rt9hgouhrgouro jrhgohorewherhepr gkjrhgkrbfbdsbsdbdbbdlblldfldfvlfvlfdfnvk
this song was at a mates funeral today called jesse jones ....mr jones r.i.p forever in my heart xo
Mr Jones is a name for heroin
Mr. Jones is a Math teacher at my school!!!!! Thats who he is.
ya, I've heard that this song is about his dick.
I don't even care though. Hell of good song. Super chill.
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.
very nice song, first soudtrack of my trip
This track from nearly 20 years ago still sounds as good as the day I 1st closed me CD drawer on it - Pure brilliance :)
WENA , DE TERRIBLE DE CANCIONS
great song , very difficult to sing though guitar is easy
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.
Isn't it obvious? Mr. Jones is his weenie.
I LOVE THIS SON. IT´S ONE OF THE GREATEST EVER!!!
i want to be an lion... hahhaahhaha
This music is crap.
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!!
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.
this is marcusbrown
the lyrics are f****** wrong
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...
Mr. Jones is the singer's left buttock.
MR. JONES IS BOB DYLAN'S DICK!!!!1!!s
I am MR. Jones this song is not real....
Mr.Jones is a type of booze you dummies.
Thats my teachers name! he plays it all the time during class and we have dance partys!!!!
THE BEST SONG EVER!!!!!!
i <3 mr.jones hes my best drink... i mean freind
Mr Jones is actually Davey Jones, who recently passed away.
This song is about "jonesing" something. It's about things that you wish for, or want.
this song is great dont dis counting crows
I love it but i still love tool more than c.c
Mike Jones tried to get famous but couldn't so he went back in time and made them write a song about him.
slightly wrong lyrics in 2 places but better than most sites if your not gonna play it then they're good enough
Didn't do a very good job at the lyric's did ya!
Its about a bob dylan song called mr.jones
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.
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
i listen to this song since i was 15 years old. 19 years ago and i still like it. the lyrics is very diferent
ha guyyy lick me left nut
ha gay like me left nut
one of the best songs ever.. so symbolic about old times good times, times that mean so much to every one of us but listening to this song reminds one how she has to value the past over and over and over again.. just reminisce.. relive rejoice celebrate.. truly one of the most incredible songs ever.. counting crows rox!!!
great song, poor attempt at the lyrics.
Other than a few missing words, pretty rad
I appreciate, cause I discovered just what I used to be looking for. You have ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day. Bye ekeckgddkgdfbefb
I truly prize your function, Wonderful post. cbefddaecfeedkdc
