You should have listened to what mama said
And walked away with someone else instead
You should have listened to what grandma said
And married someone more like Fred

You should have listened to your inner voice
While you had time and still a choice
You should have reached for the emergency brake
Before it was too late

[Chrous]
You see the clever girl looks for a clever boy
To another extent than the clever boy
Will ever look for a mate
Who goes to round-table debates
And runs a little bit late
When she does work for the state

You see the clever girls look for a clever boys
And then the clever boys seem to have a different choice
They want a good-looking chick
That likes to blow them away
Someone who laughs at all the
Funny little things they say

I have a friend who's in this MENSA club
He has no trouble to admit
He wants a woman with ambitions
That go as far as raising kids

[Chorus x3]

    General CommentIt's so true.


    Smart girls will ALWAYS get the shaft. They don't want guys that aren't on their level, while the ones that are on their level don't want them.


    Smart guys can be such schmucks.

    General CommentI don't know if I can agree with this song. Almost all of the smart girls I've known have been attracted to guys that are so much less intelligent than they are, and want nothing more than to be just friends or whatever with us smart guys.

    I'd consider myself a smart guy, and one of the most attractive things about a woman is her intellect, so I'd have to say that this song is just the opposite of what I've experienced.

    It's such a great song, though.

    General CommentFantastic song! Although from my observations, it seems intelligent women are the ones that are attracted to less intelligent men, and that's usually because they're intimidated by intelligent guys due to personal insecurities and such. I know that was always my issue. Oh well, one day I'll find a man to match my intellect.
