Lyrics
Heard About Me
©J. D. Carroll
Creative Ventures Music, Inc. ASCAP

When I was young I used to run
to the sound of a different drummer.
While in school I played everybody's fool
you might say they all had my number.

But now I'm older, I'm a little bit bolder
and I learned how to rock and roll.
I'm guaranteed to fit your needs
and I promise that I'll paint your soul.

Paint your soul.

You can call me a dream maker, a heartbreaker or a dirty word.

You can call me a midnight shaker, anything to show that you've heard

about me.

When I was small I used to be called
last for all my games in gym class.
But they didn't know that I was gonna show
them all how to throw a pass.

I'm a would be flier and a late night liar
and I'll tell you anything that you want.

So, listen my friend, I'll say it again
I can but I usually won't.
I usually won't

So, you can call me a dream maker, a heartbreaker or a dirty word.

You can call me a midnight shaker, anything to show that you've heard

about me.

All my smiles are worth your while
only if you look right through them.
I heard the news that you've got the blues
so I'm coming right over to soothe them

But the morning sun is gonna make me run
I'll think about you when I'm gone.
Don't feel bad, I meant what I said
it's just that I'm traveling on.

I'm traveling on.

And you can call me a dream maker, a heartbreaker or a dirty word.

You can call me a midnight shaker, anything to show that you've heard

about me.
