Mr. Right

Original version (3:22)

We’ve been together a couple of months now.
We’ve laughed a lot, yeah, we haven’t had one row.
Needless to say, could it all stay that way, how
Wonderful life would be.

But I’ve got a feeling the honeymoon’s over.
You said you love me and honey I know where
“I love you” can lead and I don’t wanna go there.
Surely you can see that it isn’t you, it’s me.

I know that one day your prince will come
But look at me baby, I’m not the one.
I’ll show you a good time Show you a good time
Tonight. Tonight.
But I’m sorry sister,
I’m not your Mr. Right.

Everyone tells me I’m scared of commitment.
I’ll be a lot more scared if I knew what it meant.
Everyone knows that I live for the moment
And now that moment’s passed.

It’s hard to explain it, but baby I’m trying.
It would make it easier if you could stop crying.
I’d tell you the truth but I’m too used to lying.
It’s so long since I last took off this iron mask.

Well, I know that one day your prince will come
But look at me, baby, I’m not the one.
I’ll show you a good time. Show you a good time.

Well, I know that one day your prince will come
But look at me baby, I’m not the one.
I’ll show you a good time Show you a good time
Tonight. Tonight.
But I’m sorry sister,
I’m not your Mr. Right.
