Land   Zweden

Roxette is een Zweeds duo wat in de jaren 80 wordt opgericht. In 1986 verschijnt hun eerste album Pearls Of Passion maar in Nederland blijft het onopgemerkt. In 1989 is het wel raak met het album Look Sharp en de leadsingle The Look schopt het tot nummer 2 in de Nederlandse Top 40. Vele hits volgen zoals Listen To Your Heart, It Must Have Been Love en Dangerous. In 1991 scoort het tweetal een nummer 1-hit in de Nederlandse Top 40 met de single Joyride afkomstig van het gelijknamige album. In 2016 werd bekend dat Roxette ermee gaat stoppen. Dit in verband met gezondheidsredenen van zangeres Marie. Zij werd in 2002 getroffen door een hersenbloeding maar is daarvan hersteld. Wel kunnen Per en Marie terugkijken op een succesvolle carriëre.

Songtekst

I see you comb your hair, and gimme that grin.
It's makin' me spin now, spinnin' within.
Before I melt like snow, I say "Hello, how do you do?"

I love the way you undress now, baby begin.
Do your caress, honey my heart's in a mess.
I love you blue-eyed voice, like Tiny Tim shines through.
How do you do? (How do you do?)

Well, here we are crackin' jokes in the corner of our mouths,
and I feel like I'm laughing in a dream.
If I was young I could wait outside your school
'cause your face is like the cover of a magazine.

How do you do, do you do, the things that you do?
No one I know could ever keep up with you.
How do you do?
Did it ever make sense to you to say Bye?
Bye Bye?

I see you in that chair, with perfect skin.
Well, how have it been, baby, livin' in sin?
Hey, I gotta know, did you say
"Hello, How do you do?"

Well, here we are spending time in the louder part of town
and it feels like everything's surreal.
When I get old I will wait outside your house
'cause your hands have the power meant to heal.

How do you do, do you do, the things that you do?
No one I know could ever keep up with you.
How do you do?
Did it ever make sense to you to say Bye?
Bye Bye?

Well here we are crackin' jokes,
(How do you do?)
Well here we are spendin' time,
OHHHH
How do you do, do you do, the things that you do?
No one I know could ever keep up with you.
How do you do?
Did it ever make sense to you to cry Bye?
Bye Bye?

How do you do, do you do, the things that you do?
No one I know could ever keep up with you.
How do you do?
Did it ever make sense to you to say Bye?
Bye Bye?

Yeah, How do you do, do you do, the things that you do.
No one I know could ever keep up with you.
How do you do!
