"Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell" as written by and Cook....
All right!
Whoo!

A pretty face and a dirty love
Knew right away that I had to get my hooks in you
Yeah, yeah
I'm running low on memories
If you wanna make a buck, boy, you gotta be a tease, uh-huh
I say yeah, yeah

I need it all, baby, that's no lie
I need a lover with an alibi
I wanna fall into a love so sweet
Honey baby, baby, I'm hard
Hard to beat

A pound of flesh and a touch of bone
Smells in the air but I'm feeling so alone, uh-huh
I say yeah, yeah
Hallucination, true romance
I needed love but I only got a chance, uh-huh
And that ain't all

I tell ya honey, it's a crying shame
All the pretty girls they look the same
I wanna fall into a love so sweet
Honey, baby, baby I'm hard
Hard to beat

Whoo!
Hey
Hey
Your pretty face is going to hell
Your pretty face is going to hell
Honey, honey, I can tell
Your pretty face is going to
Hell!
That's right, baby
Hell!

A pretty face and a dirty love
Knew right away that I had to get my hooks in you
I say yeah, yeah
I'm running low on my memories
If you wanna make a buck, boy, you gotta be a tease, uh-huh
And that ain't all
Ow!

I need it all, honey, that's no lie
I need a lover with an alibi
I wanna fall into a love so sweet
Honey baby, baby I'm hard
Hard to beat

Whoo!
Yeah
Hey
Your pretty face is going to hell, your pretty face is going to hell
Honey, honey, I can tell, your pretty face is going to hell
Honey, baby, ride on, ride on pretty mama
Honey, honey, ride on your rollerskates
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Ah, honey, whoo, baby, oh yeah
Come on, a-baby, baby, baby, baby , no-no, baby, baby
Baby, baby, honey baby, don't you fight me
Really, don't you fight me
Really, don't you fight me
Really, don't you fight me
Really, don't you, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
Baby, all right on mama, baby, I said
Oh, baby baby, hey, hey, honey, hey-hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Baby, baby, your pretty face is a-going to hell
Your pretty face is going to hell
Honey, honey, I can tell
Your pretty face is going to hell, hell, hell, hell, hell, hell, hell
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey

    General CommentI hear it as "If you want to make a buck, boy, you gotta be a tease."

    Then I also hear "Hot flesh and I touch alone" as "A pound of flesh and a touch of bone."

    One of my favorite songs off the Raw Power album.

    General Commentit is "a pound of flesh and a touch of bone" since there, for one reason can't be two sentences after one another ending with alone. and the "a pound of..." works better.

    apart from that, this song is brilliant! I love it!

    General CommentHere's my thing...I always hear the first line as "A pretty face and a dirty look." A lot of places have it listed as "dirty love", but...I swear he's saying look. Oh well.

    General CommentYeah, this is the best song on the album. The opening riff is sick--a classic in and of itself. I have always just kind of made up my own lyrics for this song because, frankly, any set of words or jibberish that a listener might decide to slur would sound awesome with this riff. Personally, I have always thought the opening line was "a dirty dance and a dirty look"...and... "if you wanna make a buck"
