So far, there's no doubt
Things are working out
Between us, we can cover every base
You're cute, I'm not
I'm sharp, you've got
A certain way of spilling all over the place

But you just keep me warm
And I'll fill out that form
And when they kick me out again
Tell them to let me back in
Look nice and they won't think twice about it
Baby, because there's no stopping us

With my brains, your looks
Your bait, my hooks
We could catch a thousand gravy trains
But it would be bad
If all we had
Was my looks and your brains

So hold my hand
Just like we planned
So you won't get lost and I won't get thrown out
If they get wise
Just flash those eyes
And I will give them something to get wise about

You just make your splash
And I'll supply the cash
When some comes in
It's looking kind of thin and glum
But some will come along
You'll be glad we stayed, cause we'll have it made

With your looks, my brains
Your tracks, my trains
We're re-writing all the record books
Just study the floor plan
Be glad we got more than
Your brains and my looks

I wonder if under pressure we could make it on our own
Could we stand it, empty-handed and stranded and all alone?

But let's not find out what that would be about
I'll stick with you
You let yourself be stuck to
You and me have a legacy
That we can pass on to our kids
They could get lucky

With my brains, your looks
Your knights, my rooks
They could really win a lot of games
But just think, what if
They end up with
My looks and your brains?

    Swiss Army Girlfriend is better as far as double meanings and such...but this song as far as rhyming lines such as "but just think; what if; they end; up with; my looks and your brains" i'd say this song is better. so i guess is a matter of opinion but anyway Me=0.5 You=1/2

    Maybe his best ever. You gotta admit : "With my brains, your looks, your bait, my hooks, we could catch a thousand gravy trains" and "You just make your splash and I'll supply the cash when some comes in" and "With your looks, my brains, your tracks, my trains, we're re-writing all the record books" are all right on, funny and yet still rings true. Then the twist at the end: "You and me have a legacy that we can pass on to our kids. They could get lucky. With my brains, your looks, your knights, my rooks, they could really win a lot of games. But just think, what if they end up with my looks and your brains?" wraps the whole thing up with a funny and clever ending.
