The Who

Real Good Looking Boy

Lyrics

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 theatre 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've got 'em all
You've 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 and
you help 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
Man, he gave me your sweet, sweet, sweet love

You make me feel like
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
