if you want to be a lady
have a look at me.
folks line up for days
just to have a
look-see.
take it from me
what you see
is a lady indeed.
if you want to be a lady
have a look at me.

paint your lips a touch too wide
hide secrets in your mouth.
stand on corners for too long
just to have a
look-see.
hang your purse on your left
your lovers photo turn it right
if you want to meet a lady
well then offer her a ride.

all these men are looking
looking at me
giving me the once over
with a big old
look-see.

carry the world by its knees
keep the porchlight burning bright
sell yourself for nothing less than
one grandstanding night
if take it from me
what you'll see
is a lady indeed.
if you want to be a lady
have a look at me.
