Eric Clapton – Wonderful Tonight Lyrics 8 years ago
Okay guys. Pattie Boyd wrote a book, and she describes the exact situation--
"One night, unusually, me and Eric were going out, and I couldn't decide what to wear. I was taking a very long time to do my makeup and hair, putting on one dress, then another and another, throwing them all into a pile on the floor. Poor Eric had been ready for hours and was waiting patiently. He was so sweet- at least, in the early days. The worst he would say if I annoyed him was 'you're a silly clown.'"

Then it goes on to say--
"Suddenly, as I was flinging dresses on and off, inspiration struck. When I finally got downstairs and asked the inevitable question, "Do I look alright?" he played what he'd written:

It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear.
She puts on her makeup and brushes her long blonde hair.
And then she asks me, "Do I look alright?"
And I say "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."
