"Roxanne (The Police cover)" as written by and Gordon Sumner....
Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right

Roxanne
You don't have to wear that dress tonight
Those days are over
You don't have to sell your body to the night

Roxanne, Roxanne, Roxanne
Oh no!

Don't you put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne

Don't you put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne

I loved you since I knew ya
I wouldn't talk down to you
I have to tell you just how I feel
I won't share you with another boy

I know my mind is made up
So put away your make up
I told you once, I won't tell you again
It's a bad way

Roxanne, Roxanne, Roxanne
Oh, not again!

Don't you put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne

Don't you put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne

I know your heart is broken
And it's left you so wide open
I know your heart is broken
Roxanne

Don't try to pick up the pieces
Just leave them where they lie
I'm gonna give you a new heart
Tonight

Don't try to pick up the pieces
Just leave them where they lie
I'm gonna give you a new heart
Tonight

Don't you put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne

Don't you put on the red light
Don't have to put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne
