"What's Your Name" as written by and Vince Clarke....
Sometimes watch you walk the street at midnight
Sometimes i can feel you in the air
Looking good knew you would
All the time i understood

Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

Everybody seems to look your way now
(everybody seems to look your way)
Everybody wants to know your name
(hey, hey, what's your name)
Feeling bright just tonight
Hear them say you're out of sight

Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

All the boys we got to get together
All the boys together we can stand
We can go never know
All the things we need to show

Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

Hey you're such a pretty boy (you're so pretty)
Hey you're such a pretty boy (you're so pretty)
Hey you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty (p-are-e, double-t-y)

Hey you're such a pretty boy
Hey you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

    General CommentI'm still laughing at what you said miraeja, that it's the gayest song ever written...as a matter of fact I couldn't imagine a gayest song than this...
    imagine how embarassed dave must've been when he had to sing this.....!
    it's really a fun song though, it's synth pop at its best, vince clarke is really the greatest synth pop composer!

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who is so conceited they think they are such a pretty boy. I think we all know someone like that who thinks their shit don't stink. I am a huge DM fan but this is definately not even close to one of my favorites.

    General CommentI LOVE This song. :D It makes me so happy... DM wasn't really DM when Vince Clarke was there. They were like a whole nother band. But I still think this song is a masterpeice. It's just fun!

    General CommentI just don't get why they went so far with it. These lyrics are so stupid and it's obvious they were trying to catch gay fans. There's NOTHING subtle or metaphorical on the entire song. No poetry at all... bad bad lyrics.

    General CommentYeah Luv, yer right, they do hate this shit, not only that, but when asked what they're worst song is they spit out "what's your name" before the questions even finished. It make sence what you said tho, that Martin didn't help wright this, for the longest time I just thought they all outgrew being gay......I mean look at the way those boys dressed, especially Martin. So many times they would sing a love song and then say the word "she" in reference to the object of effection and I'd be thinking "uh.......she? .....you sure? But I guess those guys got married

    Well, yeah, that's how Vince Clark wrote... his words were merely random phrases scribbled on a page, in most cases. He's openly admitted this! But you figure his method yielded a few good songs at least... I have to agree with all of you though that this track is probably one of the most gay, random and un-lyrical songs ever! But it still makes me smile when I hear it!

    Yeah, they're all straight! Martin and Dave have kids for sure, and Dave is on wife 3 I think? You also need to sit back and look at their style considering the times and the venues they were playing.
