The Complete U2 (2004)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Miami"

"We had been in the studio, slugging it out over the record for months. I think we all needed a bit of fresh air. So we went to Miami and had a very good time. We went out. We met a lot of very serious people and some very superficial people and enjoyed both. We were introduced to the art of smoking cigars in a sort of late-night Mafia place, none of your spit 'n' sawdust here, this was a shag-pile carpet all the way. We came, we saw, we conquered - it is all in the lyrics of the song 'Miami.' Our eyes were wide open...some of the time!" - Adam, U2 By U2 2006

Weather 'round here choppin' and changin'
Surgery in the air
Print shirts and southern accents
Cigars and big hair
We got the wheels and petrol is cheap
Only went there for a week
Got the sun got the sand
Got the batteries in the handycam

Her eyes all swimming pool blue
Dumb bells on a diving board
Baby's always attracted to the things she's afraid of
Big girl with the sweet tooth
Watches the skinny girl in the photo shoot
Freshmen squeaky clean
She tastes of chlorine

Miami
My mammy

Love the movies, love to walk those movie sets
Get to shoot someone in the foot
Get to smoke some cigarettes
No big deal we know the score
Just back from the video store
Got the car and the car chase
What's he got inside the case
I want a close up of that face
Here comes the car chase

Miami
My mammy
Miami
My mammy

I bought two new suits
Miami
Pink and blue
Miami
I took a picture of you
My mammy
Getting hot in a photo booth
Miami
I said you looked like a madonna
You said maybe
Said I want to have your baby, baby
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem
At least not in Miami
You know some places are like your auntie
But there's no place like

Miami
My mammy
Miami
My mammy
My mammy
Shakedown
