Norah Jones – Don't Be Denied lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I was a young girl
My mama said to me
Your daddy's leaving home today
I think he's gone to stay
We packed up all our bags
And drove out to Winnipeg
When we got to Winnipeg
I checked in to school
I wore white bucks on my feet
When I learned the golden rule
The punches came fast and hard
Lying on my back in the school yard

[Chorus]
Don't be denied, don't be denied
Don't be denied, don't be denied
Don't be denied, don't be denied
[Verse 2]
Well pretty soon I met a friend
He played guitar
We used to sit on the steps at school
And dream of being stars
We started a band
We played all night

[Chorus]
Don't be denied, don't be denied
Don't be denied, don't be denied
Don't be denied, don't be denied

[Verse 3]
Oh Canada
We played all night
I really hate to leave you now
But to stay just wouldn't be right
Down in Hollywood
We played so good
The businessmen crowded around
They came to hear the golden sound
There we were on the Sunset Strip
Playing our songs for the highest bid
We played all night
The price was right

[Chorus]
Don't be denied, don't be denied
Don't be denied, don't be denied
Don't be denied, don't be denied

[Verse 4]
Well, all that glitters isn't gold
I know you've heard that story told
And I'm a pauper in a naked disguise
A millionaire through a business man's eyes
Oh friend of mine
Don't be denied
