In a hand painted night, me and Gypsy Scotty are partners
At the Hotel Flamingo, wearing black market shoes
This loud Cuban band is crucifying John Lennon
No one wants to be lonely, no one wants to sing the blues
She's perched like a parrot on his tuxedo shoulder
Christ, what's she doing with him, she could be
Dancing with me
She stirs the ice in her glass with her elegant finger
I want to be what she's drinking, yeah, I just want to be
I saw you first
I'm the first on tonight
I saw you first
Don't that give me the right
To move around in your heart
Everyone was looking
But I saw you first
On a moon spattered road in her parrot rebozo
Gypsy Scotty is driving he big long yellow car
She flies like a bird over his shoulder
She whispers in his ear, boy, you are my star
But I saw you first
I'm the first one tonight
Yes I saw you first
Don't that give me the right
To move around in your heart
Everyone was looking
In the bone colored dawn, me and Gypsy Scotty are singin'
The radio is playing, she left her shoes out in the back
He tells me a story about some girl he know in Kentucky
He just made that story up, there ain't no girl like that
But I saw you first I'm the first one tonight
Yes I saw you first
Don't that give me the right
To move around in your heart
Everyone was looking
But I saw you first
I saw you first
