An occasional series

I've noticed a tendancy for some people to post song lyrics on their blogs – things they find deep and meaningful at a point in time.

I don't really get that, but to join in the crowd I introduce an occasional series of song lyrics that may not be the most sensitive or politically correct, though they may not have caused a sensation at the time of release.

Note that I do not endorse or follow the opinion expressed in these lyrics – I merely post them to smile sagely at the cultural differences between the generations – think about what some smug git will be saying about the lyrics of todays pop favourites in 40 years time!

First up a song written by the guy who wrote some of Motown's most memorable love songs, inc. Tracks of my Tears, one of the most sensitive and delicate songs you are likely to hear:

FIRST I LOOK AT THE PURSE
(Written by : Smokey Robinson / Robert Rodgers)

The Contours
J. Geils Band

Some fellas look at the eyes
Some fellas look at the nose
Some fellas look at the size
Some fellas look at the clothes
I don't care if her eyes are red
I don't care if her nose is long
I don't care if she's underfed
I don't care if her clothes are worn
First I look at the purse!

Some fellas like the smiles they wear
Some fellas like the legs that's all
Some fellas like the style of their hair
Want their waist to be small.
I don't care if their legs are thin
I don't care if their teeth are big
I don't care if their hair's a wig
Why waste time lookin' at the waistline?
First I look at the purse!

A woman can be fat as can be,
kisses sweet as honey
But that don't mean a thing to me
If you ain't got no money
If the purse is fat….that's where it's at.

Some fellas like the way they walk
The way they swing and sway
Some fellas like the way they talk
Dig the things they say.
I don't care if they wobble like a…
or talk with a lisp
I still think I'm a good lover
if the dollar bills are crisp

First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!

I don't care if you got yourself a wrap
all I want is your pretty green cash
Bought me a suit, bought me a car
Want me to look like a hollywood star
Money, (Money!) I want money (Money!)
Baby, ain't no "why", baby (Money!)
I need money!

First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
First I look at the purse!
