SGNOBTR Lyrics

She’s Got Nothing On (but the radio) What she got she got to give it to somebody What she got she got to give it to someone It’s not a case of growin’ up or lots of money It’s just the fundamental twist of the sun More at The Daily Roxette


The lyrics out! If you wanna singalong to a song you haven’t heard yet check this out: www3.dailyroxette.com

She’s got nothing on (but the radio) What she got she got to give it to somebody What she got she got to give it to someone It’s not a case of growin’ up or lots of money It’s just the fundamental twist of the sun What she got she got to let somebody find it (- “Really?”) What she got is not for her to keep alone (- “Oh!”) Nobody’s got a clue if there is such a reason (- “Yea?”) Why she wanna play it o-on her own She’s got nothing on but the radio She’s a passion play And like the break of day She takes my breath away What she got she got to give to some contender What she got is just like gold dust on a shelf And no one’s got a clue what’s on her brave agenda Why she wanna keep it keep it to herself She’s got nothing on but the radio It’s a passion play And like the break of day She takes my breath away Who did the painting on my wall?

Swedish 50+ women magazine “M-magasin” is organizing a competition where their readers choose the most important women of 2010 in various categories.

PART FOUR: See y’all somewhere around the globe next year. We promise to do our best to bring a smile to your faces. Have a great X and a most charming new year. Don’t drink and drive.
Love from Per & Marie



PART THREE: The new single will officially hit Planet Earth January 7 but knowing you guys you’re probably already tired of it by then…… Charm School begins Feb 10.
So… thanks for all your support, we need that from time to time. Yea, we do appreciate your unconditioned love now and forever (sounds like a song…).



PART TWO: Anyway, we just want to wish you all a merry X. 2010 has certainly been a fab year for us. We managed to finish the Charm School-album. I finally got my favourite pasta-dish right. Marie learned how to ski. I cracked the Top 10 on the go-kart track. Marie found her Trash&Vaudeville-pants from 89 at the dry-cleaners. We did 7 super shows in Europe. And there is more to come next year you know that. Plenty.



PART ONE: Is Santa Claus an eskimo masochist? The q is relevant since it’s sooooo cold in Sweden right now we poor Swedes can hardly breathe. All guitars are out of tune, thank God for the blankets we found in a closet at the Tits & Ass Studio the other day.
