Pretty boys on my TV screen
Teeth so white and hair so clean
Pretty boys sing and play guitars
Pretty boys get to be big stars

How do you rate my sex appeal from one to ten?
Is my image just a bit confusing?
Maybe I should get a face lift, start again
Maybe I should trade my pointed shoes in
'Cause talent don't count for pretty boys

Those promo people got a lot to answer for
You can take your face and see just where it fits
Be a pretty pawn in someone else's war
Your baby blue eyes, somebody else's wits
Equals success for pretty boys

I wanna see a human being on my TV set
Want some action for the fat and thin man
They're getting closer but they ain't got robots yet
Just a hero with a smile like a tin man
No brains and no heart just pretty boys
