Throwback Tuesdays: John Cougar - "Miami"

Categories: Throwbacks


Here's a great video I found by none other than John Cougar before he added that stupid Mellencamp and ruined everything. This video pioneers the South - Beach - music - video genre and exceeds the quality of almost everything that came after it. Here are the lyrics to the song. Remember, John Cougar sold millions upon millions of albums in his day.......


Well I hear in Miami they have a lot of girls

Who toast their flesh in the sun

Living on allowances they receive from the old man at home

To keep up appearances to have fun



CHORUS:

Hey baby

Living in Miami

I know you're hip to those hotel alibies

I know you're nowhere near twenty

But I ain't the kind to kiss and tell hotel lies



Well they are easy to look at, they are hard to hold

They have high opinions of themselves

But at night you can find them drinking in the bar

Wishing that they could find somebody else



CHORUS



Well they pull and tug on their high fashion clothes

As they strip off their armour in their apartment bedrooms

They wish that somewhere they can find a spark

Well their sights and visions and dreams are set high

They think the world can be won with a smile

I hear 'em giggle out loud, lost in the crowd

Give me a cuddle when we get outside



CHORUS



Hey baby

Living in Miami

I know you're hip to those hotel alibies

I know you're nowhere near twenty

But I ain't the kind to kiss and tell hotel lies
