PRETTY FACE (You're Just Another)

You came on
like a debutante
that just stepped out
of some fashion show
Used to getting
whatever you want
So good looking
but your mind was slow

Then you told your life story
five times in the course
of an hour
If you were ten shares of IBM
I would have sold you
right there for a dollar

(Chorus) I tried to teach you
I couldn't reach you
Now I beseech you to let me go
You're just another pretty face
Oh there's no way to disguise
that the light in your eyes
is shining through
the back of your head

(It) seems that there's
a dichotomy
between your good looks
and your mental block
May I prescribe a lobotomy
with the sharp edge of
the nearest rock?
Just another pretty face,
you're just another
pretty face
