The Joker
Steve Miller Band Lyrics


Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
'Cause I speak of the pompatus of love a

People talk about me baby
Say I'm doin' you wrong, doin' you wrong
Well, don't you worry, baby, don't worry
'Cause I'm right here, right here, right here, right here at home

'Cause I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I get my lovin' on the run
Ooh, whoo, ooh, whoo

You're the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really love your peaches
Wanna shake your tree
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time
Ooh wee baby, I'll sure show you a good time

'Cause I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I sure don't want to hurt no one

Ooh, whoo, ooh, whoo

People keep talkin' about me baby
Say I'm doin' you wrong
Well don't you worry, don't worry, no don't worry mama
'Cause I'm right here at home
You're the cutest thing I ever did see
I really love your peaches
Wanna shake your tree
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time
Come on baby now, I'll show you a good time

@THEODORE ritola
The fuckwit "producer" known as Mark Ronson has fucking autotuned
John Lennon's vocals!!

Let's get a local house painter to touch up the Mona Lisa!!

Or better still..

Get some studio musicians to re-record the entire Beatles catalogue.
After all, their tracks were recorded on shitty analogue tape!!

Maybe Mark Ronson could adjust the tempo on some of the
'slower' tracks...FFS!!

What is the heart of this song. It's these lines.

People keep talking about me baby.
Saying I'm doing you wrong.
Well don't worry, don't worry, don't you worry mama.
Cuz I'm right here at home.

It's the definition of romantic love. He's saying that he's faithful.
Where is he? He's at home. He's not someplace where he could
be tempted. He's on his own couch in his own living room.

What do recent songs talk about? They talk about anything but
being faithful.

It's quite amazing that fromo about 1975 to today the world could
have changed this much. Now it's weird that somebody could be
faithful. Why wouldn't they go and do whatever with who ever?
No answer.

To be honest I love this song. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for this song. I was on the verge of suicide. (tying the noose.) then this song came on and I found it so spiritual. I payed attention to the lyrics and found that it bacicly described me. So I grabbed a shot of whiskey and recomopletated life, picked up my guitar and made my own music again and it formed who I am. Thank you Steve Miller band

Damn bruh happy for u

JOHN L SULLIVAN

@Giggle Pencil LMAO ,I'm so glad you corrected that the world just wouldn't know what to do with a word misspelled while texting.

Elaine Kelly

music....one of the only pure things we have left in life...transcends colour, creed, race, sex, age......you already had the answers within,,the music just helped you tune out the noise of everything and everyone else and made you time travel to a different place/space at that time...I'm so glad you are here Cool Cattle...the world would be a shittier place without you!!! much love xx

Jessica Lee

Sounds like an unbelievable story. Either way, suicide is such a definite, permanent solution to a temporary problem either way ur looking at it. No matter how long it takes, it can always get better. & as Iโ€™ve learned since my brother & uncle passed on, ur leaving a lifetime of pain to anyone who loves u. Bc u r loved ๐Ÿฅฐ. Even if u arenโ€™t aware of it!!!โค๏ธโœŒ๏ธ

It's good to have you here buddy. The world would completely suck without people like you who have a cool taste in music.

This song was so ahead of its time. I think if it was released today it would still smash.

Nick Barbardo

Guitar Hero helped this song stay relevant too!

Peter Scoop

It's timeless

Kimberly Hood

@Quique being eclectic is so fun with music, I got turned on to the great composers, heavy metal, etc. Just dance like no one's watching.
