Europe - Mr. Government Man Lyrics

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man,
I'm just a poor boy doin' the best that I can
I've been stepped upon and pushed around, yes, I have
You can tie me up, but never tie me down

Well, I was drivin' around, tryin' to find a place
To get a beer and some cigarettes
Pullin' up behind me, not afraid to flirt
There's a girl in a red Corvette

I saw in her face that she wanted to race
So I let my car out of jail
Man, I blew it, before I knew it
The Feds were on my tail

I knew it were trouble, but didn't wanna stop
I couldn't forget that girl
My dashboard slick from alcohol
And my head still in a whirl

Just a country boy in the city lights
Tryin' to have some fun
But the Man behind me didn't wanna play
He pulled out a gun

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man...

Well, I had it comin', I hit the wall
And my car went up in flames
My head got hammered, thrown in the slammer
No one but me to blame

That's my story, ain't much glory
But I know I paid my dues
One thing I know in my heart and soul
I ain't never gonna lose

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man...

They say I might be goin' crazy
Hey, what else can I do?
Hey, my, my

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man...

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man
Don't you push me around no more

  1. Giovanna Pomo

    Europe the my heros

  2. Nigel Tempest

    good Glam Metal music

  3. GrumpyTuber

    Best song i know

  4. Eva Dahlén

    I guess this is from Le Baron Boys

  5. Isaac Miller

    Great Song!!!! This should have been on the album!!

  6. SlaughteredDecay

    Good one! Can't beleive it didn't make it to the Prisoners in Paradise-album.


    @SlaughteredDecay I can't believe they didn't release another album before Prisoners, with all those great demo songs from the Le Baron Boys demo - this being one of the best. I think it's magical, like a better version of Bon Jovi. However, since they didn't, it's difficult as hell trying to find all those tracks in decent quality. Even buying "Le Baron Boys sessions" CD wasn't satisfying because most of the tracks sounded way worse than I expected. Mr. Government Man sounded pretty good though.

    Pete Friesen

    +SIMON GÅRDH Oh yeah, my prisoners in paradise album has about 26 songs on it, even the ones that didnt't make it


    @Pete Friesen Cool. I eventually just downloaded all tracks associated with Le baron boys and put it on a disc.

    Fast Horse

    @Pete Friesen where have you bought it?

    Jöhan Rïndt

    Tell us pls.

  7. Ele anor

    Siamo in due...

  8. Antonio D'Esposito

    io sono di parte essendo un loro grande fan, ma anche questo è un pezzo che spacca!!!!!

  9. Ben55607

    This is a slightly different mix to the one i have, the intro/chorus seems to have some extra 'stick clicking' noises. I have the le baron boys demo version i think, studio quality like this but subtle differences it seems

  10. Vassilis -Chassirtzoglou

    You can find this tune in Europe's best of double cd "Rock The Night".
