[verse]
oh mr jones
won't you wake up and sing me a song
we might have to throw some stones
if we want to wake up this whole town

i see you everywhere
you're not just in my mind
flashing teeth and bright white hair
unexpected, and naturally unkind

[bridge]
the thousand people in my head
want to get you out of bed
to this roof
to feel the night
you won't believe it
cause it's outta sight

[chorus]
you man - you're a jukebox hero
twisting words so tightly wound
that 1 is 2 and i cannot be found
you burned this town down to the ground
but this ain't rome and you're no nero
that blaze is coming from your magic sound

[verse]
oh mr jones
this kid here said he'd sing along
he don't like the rolling stones
said he'd rather hear you sing your song

i saw you down the street
think that's when it all began
oh you're not mr. jones
no mr. sister, you're a star, man

[bridge]
your snow queen's gone off her head

and though she's trapped in halls of lead
she wants to get you out of bed
to this roof
to feel this night
you won't believe it
it's outta sight

[chorus x2]
you man - you're a jukebox hero
twisting words so tightly wound
that 1 is 2 and i cannot be found
you burned this town down to the ground
but this ain't rome and you're no nero
that blaze is coming from your magic sound

well I give up I read this over and over but came up empty

thought of Bill Clinton when I read this line

"flashing teeth and bright white hair "

but I never heard him sing aka next line

"won't you wake up and sing me a song "

????

cheers

it's neither of them actually - good guesses, though.

i guess a hint would be that bill clinton and this person also play the same type of instrument.

everyone knows who he is, i'm positive.

he's not just a sax player. he plays guitar, some keyboard and sings. and he's getting kind of old.

he's english.

that's the last hint i'll give.
