Real Good Looking Boy Lyrics

by Who

When I think back to the first time in my childhood
When I saw that face, I thought right then
That's a real good looking boy

I saw myself in the mirror in profile
For the first time, I thought
Hey, that's a real good looking boy

And I felt then that I moved
With all those lucky fucks and angels
High in the theater in the sky

So I ran to my mother
I said, "Hey Mom, take a look at me
Have you ever seen a teen fly so high?"

That's a real good looking boy
That's a real good looking boy

She said, "Son, well you know you're an ugly boy
You don't really look like him"
In this long line, there's been some real strange genes
You got 'em all, you got 'em all with some extras thrown in

That's a real good looking boy
That's a real good looking boy
That's a real good looking boy
That's a real good looking boy

Wise men say
"Only fools, only fools rush in"
But I, I can't help
Falling in love, in love with you

Now I'm here with you, little darling
And you say, "You're beautiful as you are"
And I've managed somehow to survive

You arrived in my life like a fragrance
You helped me find a way to laugh
Now I know how so called beauty lies

God gave him a face
Then he gave me something above
God gave me a grace
Then he gave me your sweet, sweet, sweet love

You make me feel I'm a real good looking boy
I feel I'm a real good looking boy
That's a real good looking boy
That's a real good looking boy
