You Always Got On Some Fly Blue Suit

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: SUIT/PANTS/DRESS/SHIRT

I had few different songs floating around my mind, but in the end I settled on a song I really like and rarely hear nowadays. “You Don’t Know My Name” from the fabulous Alicia Keys. I love the concept – being totally smitten by a stranger and not having the courage to tell them how you feel.

The video for this track portrays Alicia as a waitress who has a crush on a customer who comes in and places the same order every Wednesday. Although the video shows Alicia imagining having the courage to speak up about her true feelings, the video ends on a sad note that in reality she never will be able to reveal how she feels about him.

Just the kind of story to pull on my heartstrings!

Baby, baby, baby
From the day I saw you
I really really wanna catch your eye
There's something special 'bout you
I must really like you
There's not a lot of guys are worth my time
Ooh baby, baby, baby
It's getting kind of crazy
'Cause you are taking over my mind

And it feels like ooh
But you don't know my name
And I swear, it feels like ooh (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
But you don't know my name
('Round and 'round and 'round we go, will you ever know?)

Oh, baby baby baby
I see us on our first date
You're doing everything that makes me smile
And when we had our first kiss
It happened on a Thursday
Ooh, it set my soul on fire
Ooh baby, baby, baby
I can't wait for the first time
My imagination's running wild

It feels like ooh
But you don't know my name
And I swear it, baby, it feels like ooh (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
But you don't know my name
('Round and 'round and 'round we go, will you ever know?)

"I'm saying, he don't even know what he's doing to me
Got me feeling all crazy inside
I'm feeling like, "Ow! (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Doing more than I've ever done for anyone's attention
Take notice of what's in front of you
'Cause did I mention? (Ow!)
You're 'bout to miss a good thing
And you'll never know how good it feels to have all of my affection
And you'll never get a chance to experience my loving (Ow)

'Cause my loving feels like ooh
But you don't know my name
('Round and 'round and 'round we go, will you ever know?)
And I swear it feels like ooh (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
But you don't know my name
('Round and 'round and 'round we go, will you ever know?)

Will you ever know it?
No no no no no, no no
Will you ever know it?

"I'm gonna have to just go ahead and call this boy
Hello? Can I speak to—to Michael?
Oh hey, how you doing?
Uh, I feel kinda silly doing this, but uh
This is the waitress from the coffee house on 39th and Lennox
You know, the one with the braids?
Yeah, well I see you on Wednesdays all the time
You come in every Wednesday on your lunch break, I think
And you always order the special, with the hot chocolate
And my manager be tripping and stuff
Talking 'bout we gotta use water
But I always use some milk and cream for you
'Cause I think you're kinda sweet
Anyway, you always got on some fly blue suit
'N your cuff links are shining all bright
So, what you do? Oh, word? Yeah, that's interesting
Look man, I mean I don't wanna waste your time, but
I know girls don't usually do this
But I was wondering if maybe we could get together
Outside the restaurant one day?
'Cause I do look a lot different outside my work clothes
I mean, we could just go across the street to the park right here
Wait, hold up, my cell phone's breaking up, hold up
Can you hear me now? Yeah
So, what day did you say?
Oh yeah, Thursday's perfect, man"

And it feels like ooh
But you don't know my name
('Round and 'round and 'round we go, will you ever know?)
Baby, baby, I swear, it's like ooh
But you don't know my name, no no no
('Round and 'round and 'round we go, will you ever know?)
And it feels like ooh
But you don't know my name
('Round and 'round and 'round we go, will you ever know?)

And I swear on my mother and father it feels like
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
But you don't know my name
('Round and 'round and 'round we go, will you ever know?)
