"Sight For Sore Eyes" as written by and Joe Perry Steven Tyler....
Goin' downtown, goin' down, goin' down
'Neath the city, eatin' ground round
Underground is pretty gritty
I turned the screw she held the light
That's when I knew she was a

Sight for sore eyes
She was a sight for sore eyes

Playin' no fair, sleepin' under stairs
Downtown's a pity, takin' fair square
Under where it's pretty gritty
I turned the screw, she held the knife

Oh, holy Jesus, she's a sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
She's a nitty grutty

Turnin' in style, walk a mile for your titty
Naked foul while under there
Under where it's pretty gritty
Hey, don't you know people
She's a love lust hussy
She left, oh she rust me
Dear old girl
She was a sight for sore eyes
But she was sittin' pretty
A sight for sore eyes
She was a nitty gritty
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes

Peeled back and parted
Even at the start it was delight or demise
I feel like a leopard king
Sight for sore eyes
She was a sight for sore eyes
She was a sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes
Sight for sore eyes

    My InterpretationUgh, an ugly song from a great band. The "Sight for Sore Eyes" is drugs, and this isn't a pretty tune. A low point for Aerosmith, a low point for rock.
