A pretty girl is like a minstrel show
It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, you go
It just isn't the same on radio
It's all about the makeup and the dancing and the oh

A pretty girl is like a violent crime
If you do it wrong, you could do time
But if you do it right it is sublime
I'm so in love with you, girl, it's like I'm on the moon
I can't really breathe but I feel lighter

A melody is like a pretty girl
Who cares if it's the dumbest in the world?
It's all about the way that it unfurls
A pretty girl is like a pretty girl
