I'll play guitar to make the rent
And you can make our family three
I might not make a million dollars
But a million dollars won't make me
I'm looking out on the stars tonight
Thinking about this human zoo
There's poor old Leo watching the cars roll by
Screaming up at who knows who
Believe in you
And I'll believe in me
Desperate men divided
In these glorious fields of green
We all pray to heaven
To help us mend this broken machine
There's too much talk about the clouds of gray
When there's a great big sky of blue
I turn off the T.V. and look in your eyes
And I know that I've found something true
Just believe in you, yeah
And I'll believe in me
This is the age of the icons made of sand
>From the rock and roll star to the local preacher man
>From the baseball player to the politician with his plans
Well darling, just believe in you
Oh, and I'll believe in you too
Someone's gonna sue for harrassment
Someone gonna sue 'cause they can't forget
Someone gonna sue poor old Philip J. Morris
For selling 'em one too many cigarettes
And Philip Morris, well he'll probably sue me
For putting his name in this song
And all across America
We try and teach our children how to get along
Believe in you
And I'll believe in me
I'll believe in me

ok its a pop song. but jude doesn't get enough praise. it and everything on the album including the backing vocals on Joe by Kiefer Sutherland of 24 fame is good

Same here. Combined with that horribly boring Pink Floyd song this is a very soporific set.

This is kind of watered down folk music meets Phill Collins. More suitable for a light pop station.

i was originally going to come on here to flog this guy for taking a page out of john mayer's book (which is bad enough), but now i think i'll just flog him for writing really crap music.
You all realize that Jude's been making music for 25 years, right? If I recall, John Mayer's last disc had a tune about a quarter mid-life crisis, so I'll leave you to do the math... Why the negative sentiment, I'll never understand. Maybe it's the in thing these days. Personally, I'm happy to hear him on RP. (see prior post)

Marginal says it best.

Half decent song, I'm just suprised this guy let his 4 year old brother play the drums.
You would have preferred Meg White?

I beg your pardon -- my grandfather was Philip Morris. Old Pool Skunk, get a lawyer!

I reckon one Paul Simon is enough for me, but for now this isn't too obnoxious.
I'm Phillip Morris. Jude Cole, get a lawyer.
Bonus point for any song that teaches social and personal responsibility. One more for being Jude Cole. Excellent tune.
I think you mean Gerry Rafferty? brandog wrote:
And, for some reason, Jimmy Rafferty, too.

Oh yes more Jude Cole please...
Thank you BobbyCat--I am gratified.
I can't be the only person at RP that thinks this is an awesome song?
Oh yes more Jude Cole please...
