river phoenix lyrics – trip

mikes mum used to say the beatles weren’t the same now john’s gone
and all that’s really left is paul mccartney and his frog song

mike thinks she’s not wrong
as he puts some clean socks on
and looks into the mirror he pops all his greasy spots on
he hums along to a cheesy rock song
combing his hair, how much ralph lauren? screw it put lots on
he’s already put a sign on his door so
his friends don’t knock for him
mikey must likey this girl lots then

try not to wake up mike
‘cos last night the girl he likes cried
turns out he didn’t get a kiss goodnight ‘cos river phoenix died

so later that night mike took her to this italian place in queens-way
she had the pizza
magherita
and he had the sea-bait
she said she was a libra, and that her favourite band was green-day
and she rarely drank either, so that made her a cheap date
they flirted with some cheese-cake
and then they left at nine
and he walked her home back to her road just near kensal rise
and just before he kissed her, her little sister ran outside
with tears in her eyes
she said river phoenix has died

try not to wake up mike
‘cos last night the girl he likes cried
turns out he didn’t get a kiss good-night ‘cos river phoenix died

mike never got to kiss her
thanks a lot mr. river
