Pretty Faces

(Verse 1:)
Oh there she goes with that pretty face
Coming out from a hazy maze
Tying her shoelace
But you saw her before I did
You try to make matches… to fit
But I don’t like it

(Verse 2:)
I say it’s alright if you look at pretty girls
Though you say I’m the prettiest girl in the world
I don’t care as long as I’m your lady
But I can’t look at other guys ’cause you won’t let me

Chorus:
Pretty faces all around us
And then you don’t see me
Pretty faces have now found us
And fool my precious baby
I would rather have a clever guy
Than a dumb though he’s handsome
But still looks matter and I wonder why
And the pretty faces continue to come

(Verse 3:)
What shall I do to be pretty too?
You say it doesn’t matter to you
But I know it does
She bends down to tie her shoelace
I see the smile on your face
Her heart’s in a maze

(Verse 4:)
Now I’m starting to see the truth of the prettiness
The young girl doesn’t know her heart’s in a mess
‘Cause she loves then leaves ’cause she just can’t stay
So why be pretty when the love always fades away?

Chorus:
Pretty faces all around us
And then you don’t see me
Pretty faces have now found us
And fool my precious baby
I would rather have a clever guy
Than a dumb though he’s handsome
But still looks matter and I wonder why
And the pretty faces continue to come

(Bridge:)
I would like to be pretty
But not at any cost
‘Cause I’m somebody’s lady
So then I won’t get lost
Should I trade my family
To get a pretty face?
(No, I won’t do that)
Should I give up my spirit
To get a nice body?
(No, I can’t do that)

(Outro:)
Sure some are blessed to have it all
While ones like me stumble and might fall

Chorus:
Pretty faces all around us
And then you don’t see me
Pretty faces have now found us
And fool my precious baby
I would rather have a clever guy
Than a dumb though he’s handsome
But still looks matter and I wonder why
And the pretty faces continue to come
