Michael, George - Roxanne Lyrics

You don't have to put on the red light
Those days are over
You don't have to sell your body to the night

You don't have to wear that dress tonight
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right

You don't have to put on the red light

I loved you since i knew you
I wouldn't talk down to you
I have to tell you just how i feel
I won't share you with another boy
I know my mind is made up
So put away your make up
Told you once i won't tell you again
It's a bad way

You don't have to put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light

  1. William ly

    I wish George had switched to jazz in his later years because jazz enthusiasts would have taken him further in his career than POP. Miss him dearly :-(

  19. Denver Barnes

    Wow, what a super version! Anybody know who's on upright bass here? Sounds to me like Brian Bromberg..



  21. Emanuel Porras

    The voice of George Is very wonderful, I LOVE this song.

  22. Shree Sen

    Not comparing but this isn't cover to me. It made a huge impact on me, more than the original. I still have the cassette. Couldn't get your autograph :(

    rest in power George Michael.

  23. whisky parson

    c'est la classe .

  24. Zoe Dodds

    I cry every time he makes this song so achingly beautiful

  25. Jean OBoyle

    So beautifully torchy … as golden as champagne.

  26. ᄌᄒᄌ

    - Sting Official Site -

    Wendy & Dave: What did you think of George Michael's version of 'Roxanne', and have you any plans for a cover of 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go'? ;-) 

    Sting: George is one of my favourite singers and I thought the song was ultimately successful. Different than me. I already covered wake me up before you go go but nobody liked it. 

    July 17, 2000.

  27. Jeanette Stone

    Sting wrote this cover and George sings it in many different styles. It's one of my favorites.

  28. ᄌᄒᄌ

    This is a brilliant jazzy arrangement of a rock song.

  29. Xatuna Mindiashvili

    I miss you 💔💔💎💎💎💖

  31. David Torres

    Simply Gorgeous performance and song!!!!!! But this theme, for me is "Suzanne"

  32. Utak Caline

    best version ever!

  33. ирина якимова

    Лучше -просто невозможно! супер! какой талант!!!! очень жаль что его нет с нами(

  34. Sally Hu

    The king of covers. Once again, better than the original. But with a voice like that, he had unfair advantage. He was also incomparable in arrangements. Exquisite voice to go with exquisite beauty and a tender, generous soul.


    Realest comment 👊👊👊

  35. Zappp

    If that Michael was the king of pop, This Michael was surely the king👑 of STYLE, PANACHE,ELEGANCE..........RIP DEAR!!!😩😩

  63. Chris Charker

    best ever version. so classy.

  64. Marianne Van Eynde

    my god, next to Sinatra, he's the best.

    Sally Hu

    No, no, no. And no again. GM is next to no one. Certainly not to the highly overrated Sinatra who didn't write his own materials, and had no versatility. Unlike GM, who could blow the roof on dance club tracks, sang gospel, R&B, soul, ballads with a voice that tears at your heart. Sinatra is not even worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as GM. GM was the king of covers. Musically, he was a god.

  65. Martin Emilio

    Great artist...r.i.p.

  66. Makeup Artist Cornwall

    such a shame, very talented man x

  75. David Represa

    La canta mejor que el compositor!

  76. mark hall

    best version of song ever ever

    Greg Howard

    2nd best. Eddie Murphy had the best. 😎

    Jeanette Stone

    Greg Howard there is no 2nd best to George Michael including Eddie Murphy. You cannot compare a comedy actor with the likes of George. Unless there is another Eddie Murphy I don't know about


    He does even better in the live version.


    mark hall your wrong!!!!

  77. salud y riqueza

    Me encanta como lo hace Geroge Michael a diferencia de The Police. Partiendo que el timbre agudo de el cantante no me gusta.

    Lolita Peil

    De acuerdo!!

  78. David Taylor

    Genius arrangement.


    phil ramone arranged it so bomb

  79. Александр Карнизов

    Beautiful song! 💖
