lyrics

V E R S E 1 A
He: She is pretty
Pretty ugly
But she’s stinkin’
Stinkin’ rich
Oh, she’s lousy
Lousy with money
She’s got the scratch
I got the itch

V E R S E 1 B
She: He is kind
Kind of stupid
But he’s driven
Driven me nuts
Still he’s the best
The best I could hope for
And all I hate about him
Is his guts

R E F R A I N 1
Yet I so terribly love him
There’s no germ or vermin above him
He’s so down-to-earth he’s like dirt or debris
He’s perfectly awful, but awfully perfect for me

V E R S E 2 A
He: She is striking
Don’t say I didn’t warn you
Her voice distinctive
Even when she doesn’t yell
A fair complexion
Well… fair-to-middling
She has a special air about her
You can smell

V E R S E 2 B
She: He’s determined
Determinedly lazy
Makes an impression
Wherever he sits
Isn’t he dashing?
Dashing off for refreshments
So larger-than-life
That no pair of pants ever fits

R E F R A I N 2
He: And I so terribly love her
The clothes strewn about reeking of her
Her putrid bouquet and her foul potpourri
She’s perfectly awful, but awfully perfect for me

B R I D G E
She’s the sick
In the sick’ningly sweet
She’s the trick
But she’s never the treat
She: Biggest prick
That you ever could meet
And not that kind of meat
His condom size is petite

V E R S E 3 A
Such fine manners
So fine, you can’t notice
Holds open the door
To squeeze himself through
He says, “excuse me”
When he finishes burping
He flushes easily
When I remind him to

V E R S E 3 B
He: People like her
People like her repulse me
But I put myself second
Her money comes first
Both: And that’s my champion
My champion loser
Why should I settle
For anyone but the worst?

R E F R A I N 3
She: And I so terribly love him
Although off a bridge I could shove him
He: And I so terribly love her
Though her face ought to come with a cover
She: A sight for sore eyes
He: But an eye-sore to see
She: He’s dim but devoted
He: She’s lethal but loaded
She: So jarring
He: So jolting
Both: So simply revolting
Perfectly awful
But awfully perfect
For me
