originally by Steve Miller Band

Some people call me the space cowboy
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
Cause I speak with the prophecies of love

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

Cos I'm a pitcher, 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 talker
I get my loving on the run Your the cutest thing that I ever did see
Really like your peaches, wanna shake your tree
Lovy dovy, lovy dovy, lovy dovy all the time
O wee baby I wanna show you a good time

Cos I'm a pitcher, 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 talker
I get my loving on the run

    General CommentHaha - wow - these lyrics are messed up.

    First, it's "some people call me Maurice 'cause I speak of the pompatus of love" - which is a reference to an earlier SMB song.

    Next, in the chorus:
    "I'm a picker (guitar picker) I'm a grinner (as in, picking and grinning - country music reference)
    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 (he smokes pot at midnight)..."

    and yeah, I didn't realize Sheryl covered this but it's a good song.
