We all know about that one song that pops up in our heads and keeps lingering for days. Well I had exactly that with Tony Basil’s one hit wonder ‘Mickey,’ which is in fact a cover from Racey’s original ‘Kitty.’ Well then. the song was already for days on and off in my mind so I decided today to check the song, because often enough, when I listen to the song it will leave my mind. Opening YouTube typing ‘Hey Mickey’ in the search bar for I had no idea who actually sang it. It popped with the name Tony Basil and clicked the audio version, for I don’t do official video-clips.  I saw it immediately and nearly laughed my head off.

 

Next to the song was the Peter’s Pop-show version of INXS’ Taste It, which already made me laugh that hard and then right after I saw the song right above INXS ‘Spirit In The Sky’ and I thought ‘Really? How obvious can u people be?’ Because what most of you people don’t know is, Michael was in fact nicknamed Mickey, there is an interview in which he says so, if I find it again I will add it. This signalling though was marvelous. I had a good laugh. If that wasn’t enough … read the lyrics …sigh! © Cormael 2018 30/09

 Oh Mickey, you’re so fine
You’re so fine, you blow my mind, hey Mickey, hey Mickey
Oh Mickey, you’re so fine
You’re so fine, you blow my mind, hey Mickey, hey Mickey

Oh Mickey, you’re so fine
You’re so fine, you blow my mind, hey Mickey, hey Mickey
Oh Mickey, you’re so fine
You’re so fine, you blow my mind, hey Mickey

Hey Mickey
You’ve been around all night and that’s a little long
You think you’ve got the right, but I think you’ve got it wrong
Why can’t you say goodnight? So you can take me home Mickey?

‘Cause when you say you will, it always means you won’t
You’re givin’ me the chills, baby, please, baby don’t
Every night you still leave me alone Mickey

Oh Mickey, what a pity, you don’t understand
You take me by the heart when you take me by the hand
Oh Mickey, you’re so pretty, can’t you understand
It’s guys like you, Mickey
Oh what you do Mickey, do Mickey
Don’t break my heart, Mickey

Hey Mickey
Now when you take me by the hooves, who’s ever gonna know
And every time you move I let a little more show
There’s something you can use, so don’t say no Mickey

So come on and give it to me anyway you can
Anyway you want to do it, I’ll take it like a man
But please baby, please don’t leave me in the damp Mickey

Oh Mickey, what a pity, you don’t understand
You take me by the heart when you take me by the hand
Oh Mickey, you’re so pretty, can’t you understand?
It’s guys like you, Mickey
Oh what you do Mickey, do Mickey
Don’t break my heart, Mickey

Oh Mickey, you’re so fine,
You’re so fine, You blow my mind,
Hey Mickey, Hey Mickey
Oh Mickey, you’re so fine,
You’re so fine, You blow my mind,
Hey Mickey, Hey Mickey

Oh Mickey, you’re so fine,
You’re so fine, You blow my mind,
Hey Mickey, Hey Mickey
Oh Mickey, you’re so fine,
You’re so fine, You blow my mind,
Hey Mickey, Hey Mickey

Oh Mickey,
What a pity, you don’t understand
You take me by the heart when you take me by the hand
Oh Mickey, you’re so pretty, can’t you understand?
It’s guys like you, Mickey
Oh what you do Mickey, do Mickey
Don’t break my heart, Mickey

Oh Mickey,
What a pity, you don’t understand
You take me by the heart when you take me by the hand
