The Ballad of Michael Valentine
The Killers Lyrics

Michael plays with stars
Soul Sister won't you take a ride in his car
Late to call
When you wanted to be all

Baby don't be so shy
Rock children hold your heads up high
In the night while I try
And tell the ballad of Valentine
You got it bad, but you know it's true

I caught up with a friend in Dallas
We took a trip to New Orleans
Those black-eyed ladies
Won't say they're sorry

We finally caught a train to Memphis
Where everybody talks the same
Those blue suede babies
All know my name

And I said hold tight
Can't you see it's hurting me
But I've got the buzz
Like Marlon Brando
Michael Valentine, can't we unite?

We ended up in North Dakota
Although my heart's in Mexico
All went to Soho

With your new suit, and your black tie
Hold on, you're just a gambling man, all proper like
I broke to the right and I caught your eye
Shut your mouth and wave goodbye
Tonight, I ain't gonna let you rain on this parade

And I said hold tight
Can't you see it's hurting me
But I've got the buzz
Like Marlon Brando
Straight faced with misery tonight

And I will not lie when I say I ain't cold no more
But I've got the buzz
Like Greta Garbo
Walking forwards in the sun
And I've got a cold tale left to write

Well uh oh
I know he's gonna be there tonight

This, sweet talk, Tyson vs. Douglas, and Neon tiger are the most underrated killers songs ever.

There are the big hits of The Killers - Mr. Brightside, When you were young, All these things, etc. - they are masterpieces, the best songs of recent music history, you listen to them 10 hours a day and you don't get bored. And after you discover some less known songs like The Ballad of Michael Valentine and you realize that literally EVERY Killers song is perfect, they simply can't make a mistake.
