lyrics

Looking Glass
by Boffo Yux Dudes

Some people wear glasses
Or use a microscope
To see what they want
Just to give ‘em some hope

I put on my beer goggles
One bottle at a time
It changes my vision
Till everything looks fine

Chorus:
They say she's no looker
Well, normally, I'd pass
But I've been here drinkin'
I'm at critical mass

Now I see things diff'rent
And I don't wanna be crass
But I found my true love
At the bottom ...of a looking glass

Now she limps on over
And sits down next to me
Her extreme halitosis
Nearly knocks me off my seat

Well, it might be the warts
Or the hair on her chin
But there’s something about her
That causes me to grin

They say she's no looker
Well, normally, I'd pass
But I've been here drinkin'
I'm at critical mass

Now I see things diff'rent
And I don't wanna be crass
But I found my true love
At the bottom ...of a looking glass

She looks like my ex-wife
(Or is that the drink?)
Who left me so lonely
I can’t hardly think

When I’m in this state
They all look like my Sue
Let me please bring her back
Just an hour or two

They say she's no looker
Well, normally, I'd pass
But I've been here drinkin'
I'm at critical mass

Now I see things diff'rent
And I don't wanna be crass
But I found my true love
At the bottom ...of a looking glass

about

Boffo Yux Dudes Boston

Old guys who should know better. The ones your parents warned you about. Allan Morgan and Tom Giarrosso head this version of BYD with Scott Mercer, using rabid optimism that they'll be remembered for more than just all those replays on Dr. Demento.
