Mike's mum used to say the Beatles weren't the same now Johns gone
And all thats left is Paul McCartney and his stupid frog song
Mike thinks shes not wrong as he puts some clean socks on
And looks into the mirror that he pops all his greasy spots on
He hums along to a cheesy rock song
Combing his hair, how much Ralph Lauren? Screw it, put lots on.
He's already put a sign on his door so his friends don't knock for him,
Mikey must likey this girl lotsie

x2 Try not to wake up Mike,
Cos last night the girl he likes cried,
Turns out he didn't get a kiss goodnight
Cos River Phoenix died

So later that night Mike took her to this italian place in queensway,
She had the pizza, margarita, he had the seabass,
She said she was a libra and that her favourite band was Green Day,
And she rarely drank either so that made her a cheap date,
They flirted with some cheescake and then they left at nine
And he walked her home back to her road just near Kensel Rise
And just before he kissed her her little sister ran outside With tears in her eyes, she said "River Phoenix has died!"

x2 Try not to wake up Mike,
Cos last night the girl he likes cried,
Turns out he didn't get a kiss goodnight
Cos River Phoenix died

x2 Mike never got to kiss her,
Thanks a lot Mr River

x4 Try not to wake up Mike,
Cos last night the girl he likes cried,
Turns out he didn't get a kiss goodnight
Cos River Phoenix died
