Lyrics[]

Album version[]

All right, you caught me, I don't play a good guitar, but
What do want from me? It's just a stupid bar, and
I didn't promise anything, no, mhm, mhm, mm

You think I'm pretty and you like way I talk
I like your music and you like the way I walk, so
I think we're gonna get along, mm mm mm mm

I like the way you wear your sweater off your shoulder
The way your hair come down, it make you look older
How you get so handsome, my boy? Mhm

Pretty baby
Pretty baby, ahh

The way your face is shaped, I wonder if you know
The way you stand up and your silhouette glows
I'm electrified, I'll be up all night now, yeah yeah yeah

Use that voice, sing that song
And tell me to come on, to come on, come on
You won't hear no, you won't hear no, mhm

Pretty baby
Pretty baby (ahh)
Pretty baby
