Words & Music - Stephen Stills
Copyright 1977, Gold Hill Music, Inc., ASCAP.


Take a look around you, tell me what you see
A girl who thinks she's ordinary lookin' she has got the key.
If you can get close enough to look into her eyes
There's something special right between the bitterness she hides.

And you're fair game,
You'll never know what she'll decide, you're fair game,
Just relax, enjoy the ride.

Find a way to reach her, make yourself a fool,
But do it with a little class, disregard the rules.
'Cause this one knows the bottom line, couldn't get a date.
The ugly duckling striking back, and she'll decide her fate.

And you're fair game,
You'll never know what she'll decide, you're fair game,
Just relax, enjoy the ride.

The ones you never notice are the ones you have to watch.
She's pleasant and she's friendly while she's looking at your crotch.
Try your hand at conversation, gossip is a lie,
And sure enough she'll take you home and make you wanna die.

And you're fair game,
You'll never know what she'll decide, you're fair game,
Just relax, enjoy the ride.
