"Sharp Dressed Man" as written by and Joe Michael Hill Frank Lee Beard....
Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to.
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Gold watch, diamond ring,
I ain't missin' not a single thing.
Cufflinks, stick pin,
When I step out I'm gonna do you in.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Top coat, top hat,
And I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat.
Black shades, white gloves,
Lookin' sharp lookin' for love.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

    General CommentTehe. This song reminds me of when I wore a suit to my 8th grade dance. I was walking down the hallway looking all sophisticated, when this guy goes "What the hell are you, a Naval Captain?" then the guy standing next to him goes, "Sharp dressed man."

    It is true every girl is crazy about a sharp dressed man. I wanna use this song to bring back the days of guys dressing like respectable members of society, not like schlubs.

    General Commentoh-my-gosh, I totally love this song. Something about it just makes me picture some hot guy decked out to the nines, and that turns me on. Could you imagine one singing it to you? Oh, goosebumps...

    General CommentThis song is simply fantastic. When/if I get the car I want (late 1970s Lincoln Town Car), I want to wear a black pair of aviator sunglasses and blast this song all the way down the road.

    From what I hear, everyone gets that feeling from this song.
