If Only Had My Mind On Something Else lyrics

Du....
I could be king of kings,
wear a crown and all the things
I'd want I'd never need.
I'd be an ace in an aeroplane
and every year I'd fly to Spain.
If I could get the nerve
to plant the seed.

Oh, tell me how to say goodbye.
I see her face in myself.
Why, tell me why I made her cry.
If only had my mind on something else.

Captain of the submarine
beneath the icebergs never seen.
A hero with a medal for everyday.
I find me fame, reach the top.
I keep on pushing, never stop.
If I could just forget her name.

Oh, tell me how to say goodbye.
I see her face in myself.
Why, tell me why I made her cry.
If only had my mind on something else.
If only had my mind on something else.
Du...
