Christian Kane – Different Kind Of Knight lyrics

Can I cut in on a dance?
You ain't gonna find what you're lookin' for
In that little Mexican.
You can't mix your tears
With those from an agave plant,
You see I've danced with him myself
And he's never been a friend.
You go believin' in your Lancelot
Well it's all in vain
And you're chasin' picket fences,
There's always hell to pay.
I met many a girl in here
With the same story line-
All them boys on those white horses
Don't know how to ride.

But I got a paint outside with enough giddyup
To be free.
I got a faint smell of cheap perfume
And a hint of gasoline.
See I'm a different kind of knight,
You're gonna find your fairy tales are lies.
I don't have a white horse
But you can come along for the ride.

She said, "I'm tired of living life in a romance book
I think chivalry's dead
And I ain't gonna look
For them roundtable boys on the white horse
That can't get the story right. "
I said, "as luck would have it
I was tossed by the throne
I let my Marian down
Some years ago
And I traded my coat of arms
For a guitar and some broken yellow lines. "

But I got a paint outside with enough giddyup
To be free.
I got a faint smell of cheap perfume
And a hint of gasoline.
See I'm a different kind of knight,
You're gonna find your fairy tales are lies.
I don't have a white horse
But you can come along for the ride.

She kinda shifted in her seat a little bit
The thought of every eye on her bee-stung lips
And she raised that glass and the lime
And she kissed him goodbye.
She said, "promise me you'll take it slow
And swear no talk of tomorrow
And when you feel me tighten around you
Well you can let the hammer down. "

And I got a paint outside with enough giddyup
To be free.
I got a faint smell of cheap perfume
And a hint of gasoline.
See I'm a different kind of knight,
You're gonna find your fairy tales are all lies.
I don't have a white horse
But you can come along for the ride.

    This song is about a drifter/gipsy who meets a girl like him in a bar and has learned that romance is a fairytale that you should not waste your time on, and is saying he isn't your Knight in shining armor, don't depend on him, don't trust him, you're gonna get hurt.
    Christian Kane actually wrote this song himself about himself and totally by himself as a way to apologize to all of the girls he has hurt in some way in other. He said ”doesnt mean you can't love, just that sooner or later, it's going to end". He also says the song is about people who can not and should not be trusted with something as precious as somebody's heart.
    If also like to comment that the first verse is not a racist comment,"that little Mexican... With those of an agave plant " references the alcoholic beverage, Jose Cuervo. He is saying she is drowning her sorrows in alcohol.
    The entire song is an reference to Sir Arthur and the knights of the round table, so if this song confuses you... educate yourself on King Arthur.
