"Loverboy" as written by Richard Davies and Roger Hodgson....
I'll tell you from the start
He's gonna break your heart
You can't stop the lover boy
You can't stop the lover boy

He's gonna tell you lies
But you won't realize
Because you can't stop the lover boy
You can't stop the lover boy

He's got a thing in his head
It's from a book he's read
It's got a funny title,
It tells you how to be vital

He took a lot of time
Over every line
Because it's guaranteed
To satisfy

He's gonna knock 'em dead
The boy's got that book read
You can't stop the lover boy
You can't stop the lover boy

Right from the clothes he wears
The way he combs his hair
You can't stop him now, because he knows all the tricks
He used to have a problem but he got it fixed

He took a small apartment
Above a shoe department
And he could see from his window
All the lights in the street glow

There's a club on the corner
And tonight he will go there
To find a new affair
So all you ladies beware

He's got to have a good time in the city
He's got to have a good time every night
He's gonna love 'em and leave 'em, cheat and decieve 'em
He's gonna show 'em who's wrong and who's right

    General CommentThe Lover Boy is someone who knows no boundaries, no limits. He cares less for the girls, yet, he needs them to feel valuable. He uses all the girls in town, inevitably breaking their hearts.

    General CommentIt's about a male slut. Just like Ex Abrupto said, they sing about a man who needs women to feel important or validated or something, but he just uses them.

    It mentions that "He's got a thing in his head / It's from a book that he read." Any thoughts on what book this was? Isn't there a book on how to pick up girls called The Game or something similar? The guy basically sounds like a douche bag.

    General Comment"He used to have a problem but he got it fixed"

    In the 70s I would guess VD. Today it would mean Viagra or any of the other boner pills. :)
