Live On Letterman - The Black Keys: "Next Girl"

Well, the look of the cake, it ain't
It ain't always the taste
My ex girl, she had such a
Such a beautiful face

I wanted love
But not for myself
But for the girl, so she could
So she could love herself

Oh, my next girl
Will be nothing like my ex girl
I made mistakes back then
I'll never do it again

Oh, my next girl
She'll be nothing like my ex girl
It was a painful dance
Now, I got a second chance

Oh, a beautiful face and her
And a wicked way
And I'm paying for
Her beautiful face everyday

All that work, over
Over so much time, if I
If I think too hard
I might lose my mind

Oh, my next girl, yeah
Will be nothing like my ex girl
I made mistakes back then
I'll never do it again

Yeah, my next girl
She'll be nothing like my ex girl
That was a painful dance and I
I got a second chance, yeah

My next girl, yeah
My next girl
