Stranger in Blue Suede Shoes - 2003 Remastered Version

Lyrics

I walked into this bar
and the man refused;
He said, "We don't serve strangers
in blue suede shoes;
We don't give credit, and
We don't give way--
We have to think about what the people might say.
uh, you know what I mean..."
I said, "Sure, man"

Oh, he gave me a smile that was sickly and wet,
And I offered him one of my cigarettes.
He took it, afraid that he might appear rude,
Then proceeded to sell me some second class food.
Nice guy - meet 'em everywhere. .

He said, "My oh my, I have suffered too long,
And this cigarette seems to be very strong;
I don't make the rules
I just get what I take
And I guess every rule was made to break.
You can take what you like, it won't hurt me
Cause I¡�¯m just working for the company."
From the green cigarette, He took a long drag,
And said, "I think I'll pick my travelling bag.

I¡�¯m tired of cheating, and wasting my head
And filling the boss's bags with bread.
I want to get out in the sun and rain,
And feel the wind on on skin again;
The world is large, and I've got time yet.
And, by the way, thanks for that cigarette.
Thank you very much."

"You know, I feel like a new man
Yes I do, I don't know why;
I¡�¯d just like to say
Thank you very much(indeed)
It's a beautiful day
I think I'll be on my way (right away)
I'd just like to say
Thank you very much.
Yes, I'm getting the hell out of here
Yes, I am - bye, bye.
That's the end of the message
Thank you very much.
Bye bye...
