The poseur's in town
The poseur's around

Hey, it don't bother me, but there's a guy eyein' you
He's watched you all night and he's looked you all over
He got his eye on you, but don't act like you're surprised
Because that smooth-looking guy's undressing you with his eyes

Look at him look you over, he thinks he can win you over
He'll flirt for a while, make passes and smile at you
But he'll never come over, 'cause he's just a poseur
Who thinks he's a Casanova

That dude standing over there, he thinks he really looks cool
The ladies think he looks smooth, but he's rehearsed every move
He stands in front of the mirror all day
Now he's on display and he's so well routined
We've all come here to dance but he's just couldn't be seen

Look at him bossa nova, look at him move and sway
But he's been practicing days to make his hair fall a certain way
But he'll never come over, 'cause he's just a poseur
Who thinks he's a Casanova

Look at him bossa nova, yeah
The poseur's in town
Yeah
