Real Good Looking Boy

Real Good Looking Boy
The Who

When I think back to the
First time in my childhood
When I saw that face
I thought right then,
‘That’s a real good looking boy’

I saw myself in the mirror
In profile
For the first time
I thought,
‘Hey, that’s a real good looking boy’

And I felt then
That I moved
With all those lucky f**ks and angels
High in the theatre
In the sky

So I ran to my mother
I said,
‘Mom – take a look at me
Have you ever seen a teen
Fly so high?’

That’s a real good looking boy
That’s a real good looking boy

She said,
‘Son, well, you know,
You’re an ugly boy.
You don’t really look like you

In this long line
There’s been some
Real strange genes
You’ve got ’em all
You’ve got ’em all
With some extras thrown in’

That’s a real good looking boy
That’s a real good looking boy
That’s a real good looking boy
That’s a real good looking boy

Wise men say
Only fools, only fools rush in
But I – I can’t help
Falling in love, in love with you

Now I’m here with you little darling
And you say, ‘You’re beautiful as you are’
And I’ve managed somehow to survive

You arrived in my life like a fragrance and
You help me find a little laugh
Now I know how so-called beauty lies

God gave him a face
Then he gave me something above
God gave me a grace
Man, he gave me your sweet, sweet, sweet love

You make me feel like I’m a real good looking boy
I feel I’m a real good looking boy
That’s a real good looking boy
That’s a real good looking boy
