Key West Intermezzo Lyrics

Artist: John Mellencamp
Album: Key West Intermezzo

In a hand painted night, me and Gypsy Scotty are partners
At the hotel Flamingo, wearing black market shoes
This loud Cuban band is crucifying John Lennon
No one wants to be lonely, no one wants to sin the blues

Shes perched like a parrot on his tuxedo shoulder
Christ, what shes doing with him, she could be
Dancing with me
She stirs the ice in her glass with her elegant fingers
I want to be what shes drinking, yeah, I just want to be

CHORUS:
I saw you first
Im the first one tonight
I saw you first
Dont that give me the right
To move around your heart
Everyones lookin?br> But I saw you first

On a moon spattered road in her parrot rebozo
Gypsy Scottys driving his big long yellow car
She flies like a bird over his shoulder
She whispers in his ear, boy, you are my star

CHORUS:
I saw you first
Im the first one tonight
I saw you first
Dont that give me the right
To move around your heart
Everyones lookin?br>
In the bone colored dawn, me and Gypsy Scotty are singin?br> The radio is playin? she left her shoes out in the back
He tells me a story about a girl he knows in Kentucky
He just made that story up, there aint no girl like that

CHORUS:
I saw you first
Im the first one tonight
I saw you first
Dont that give me the right
To move around your heart
Everyones lookin?br> But I saw you first
