I've been out on this highway now
Five days in a row
My words all run together
My feet are movin' slow
I've got to stop and eat
While it's still light
There's a local angel sitting on my right
Do you believe in love at first sight
Baby, you look good to me tonight

I'm ordinarily very shy
And I'd be polite if I had time
Baby, you look good to me tonight
Tomorrow, I'll be good and gone
Please don't make me wait that long
Baby, you look good to me tonight

"I get off at eleven," she said
And walked away
She poured a cup of coffee and
She brought it on a tray
She said, "It would be nice if you could stay
You're the best idea I've had all day
Usually I put up a fight but
Baby, you look good to me tonight."

Well I'm ordinarily very shy
But I grinned at her as I ate my pie
Baby, you look good to me tonight
I thought I must be in a dream
When she asked me if I wanted cream
Baby, you look good to me tonight

All in all you know
It's not a bad life on the road
If you've got wheels to roll
And lucky stars above
Your destiny's your own
You go as far as you can go
And if there's time to sleep
There's time to make love

I came, I saw, I conquered
But I rode off in the sun
But I know the look she left with me
Keeps telling me she won
Her face is the only thing I see
Whispering those words of prophesy

"I may come easy, but I don't come free
You're never gonna see the last of me"
Baby, you look good to me tonight
I was born to love you now can't you see
Baby, you look good to me tonight
I'm ordinarily very shy
But I take the time to satisfy
Baby, you look good to me tonight
