Girl, Beautiful Girl    (John Sebastian)

Well, you never can tell
But you're looking so well
That I gotta stop and say "How do you do?"
I know it's a long shot
But judging what she's got
I'm hoping that my judgement's true

Girl, beautiful girl, can I look at your insides?
Girl, wrapped up in fur, I'm just mad for your outsides!

Mmm, that's what my inside says
If only I could walk up and tell her
But it seems so far from me to her
And the ground is so unfamiliar

Well I wish that I knew cause I'd be in a stew
If my little speech sounded like a phony line
I know that it's doubtful cause she's heard a mouthful
Of come on up and see me sometime

Hey girl, beautiful girl, can I look at your insides?
Girl, wrapped up in fur, I'm just mad for your outsides!

Mmm, that's what my inside says
If only I could walk up and tell her
But it seems so far from me to her
And the ground is so unfamiliar

Well, you never can tell
But you're looking so well
That I gotta stop and say "How do you do?"
I know it's a long shot
But judging what she's got
I'm hoping that my judgement's true

Hey girl, beautiful girl, can I look at your insides?
Girl, wrapped up in fur, I'm just mad for your outsides!
