Mickey

Lyrics

Mickey was a cuty girl, witty and smart
Peroxid hair, a butterfly heart
We share the same sing, yeah that was a start
Guess she was the first to tear me apart
Here I go again, here I go again now
Here I go again

Mickey was the first to mess with my mind
Thought we were a pair but that was a lie
She didn't have the heart to tell in the face
In and out of love, back in my place
Here I go again, here I go again now
Here I go again, here I go

It was just a crush, probably not the real thing
On that lonely road I often went astray
It's a different story when you found the real thing
And before your eyes it fades away

Please stop, don't go, don't leave me lonely
Don't go, please stop, don't take your love away

Mickey was a cute girl, witty and fine
Saw me on stage, dropped me a line
I wrote back I had a girl but that was a lie
Should've stuck to that, saved me a whine
Here I go again, here I go again now
Here I go again, here I go

Please stop, don't go, don't leave me lonely
Don't go, please stop, don't take your love away

Please stop, don't go, don't leave me lonely
Don't go, please stop, don't take your love away

Robby talks about Mickey

I was messing around with a drum-loop, singing some lines over it that reminded me a bit of a Prince-sound. Maybe because of his song ‘Darling Nikki’ I began to sing ‘Mickey’. It made perfect sense because it was the nickname of my first teenage love. I concluded the song with a mid tempo-rock bridge and chorus. Though I must say to regret that. I Simply couldn’t come up with something good that would have fitted the idea and the feel the verse has. The live drums are again played by Noppy.
