Well I remember when I was young
My daddy told me, “Let me tell you son,
No matter where you go, there you are.
And there’s a world full of lies
Behind beautiful eyes.
Take a word to the wise and go far.”
Well, I’ve been all around the world,
I’ve seen all kinds of pretty girls,
On some I thought I could be keen.
Yeah, with those pretty eyes, and swayin’ hips,
And long, soft hair, and sweet, sweet lips,
Are beauty that’s only skin-deep.
