S.A.M.
RX Bandits Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

When I was a young boy, about nine
I wondered what it would be like- to be a spy
I said to my parents, "you just wait and you will see,
I'll be a part of your, secret agency."

Secret Agent Man

And they try to- discourage me (trick, trick)
They said, "you'll never achieve any of your dreams."
And I said, "you're wrong so you just wait- and you'll see,
I'll be a part of your- secret agency."

Secret Agent Man (x2)

And now I find myself- in a foreign land
I have my secret agent gun tight in hand
I Light a smoke and I said, "now you see-
I am a part of your- your secret agency."

(trick, what) SECRET AGENT MAN!

They try to- discourage me
They said, "you'll never achieve any of your dreams."
And I see I have a very supportive family, but
I'll be a part of their secret agency.

Secret Agent Man (x2)
