When you're in love with a beautiful woman it's hard
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you know it's hard
Everybody wants her, everybody loves her
Everybody wants to take your baby home

When you're in love with a beautiful woman you watch your friends
When you're in love with a beautiful woman it never ends
You know that it's crazy, you want to trust her
And then somebody hangs up when you answer the phone
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you go it alone

Maybe it's just an ego problem
Problem is, I've been fooled before
By fair weathered friends and faint hearted lovers
And everytime it happens
It just convinces me more

When you're in love with a beautiful woman you watch her eyes
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you look for lies
Everybody tempts her, everybody tells her
That she's the most beautiful woman they know
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you go it alone

[break]

Everybody tempts her, everybody tells her
That she's the most beautiful woman they know
When you're in love with a beautiful woman you watch your friends
When you're in love with a beautiful woman it never ends

    Ultimately i think this song is about the singer's own insecurity. I guess that he can't believe that a 'beautiful' woman would want him, so he is looking for the dangers, knowing that if she was tempted away he would be hurt. The sad thing is, insecurity and the resulting jealousy can bring about the relationship's end... A self-fulfilling prophecy perhaps?

    This song should be played at the high school senior prom.

    Dr. Hook is a great band with keyboard, drum and guitar.

    I have heard it before because it has great rhythm.
