Do you think the song "Lyin Eyes" makes Howie cry too?

    City girls just seem to find out early
    How to open doors with just a smile
    A rich old man
    And she won't have to worry
    She'll dress up all in lace and go in style

    Late at night a big old house gets lonely
    I guess every form of refuge has its price
    And it breaks her heart to think her love is
    Only given to a man with hands as cold as ice

    So she tells him she must go out for the evening
    To comfort an old friend who's feelin' down
    But he knows where she's goin' as she's leavin'
    She is headed for the cheatin' side of town

    You can't hide your lyin' eyes
    And your smile is a thin disguise
    I thought by now you'd realize
    There ain't no way to hide your lyin eyes

    On the other side of town a boy is waiting
    with fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
    She drives on through the night anticipating
    'Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel

    She rushes to his arms,
    They fall together
    She whispers that it's only for awhile
    She swears that soon she'll be comin' back forever
    She pulls away and leaves him with a smile

    You can't hide your lyin' eyes
    And your smile is a thin disguise
    I thought by now you'd realize
    There ain't no way to hide you lyin' eyes

    She gets up and pours herself a strong one
    And stares out at the stars up in the sky
    Another night, it's gonna be a long one
    She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry

    She wonders how it ever got this crazy
    She thinks about a boy she knew in school
    Did she get tired or did she just get lazy?
    She's so far gone she feels just like a fool

    My, oh my, you sure know how to arrange things
    You set it up so well, so carefully
    Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things
    You're still the same old girl you used to be

    You can't hide your lyin eyes
    And your smile is a thin disguise
    I thought by now you'd realize
    There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes
    There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes
    Honey, you can't hide your lyin' eyes



    The similarities are uncanny :scared:

    I'm sure these Lycrics sure do bring back old memories for Beth: :secret:

    "Roxanne"

    Roxanne
    You don't have to put on the red light
    Those days are over
    You don't have to sell your body to the night

    Roxanne
    You don't have to wear that dress tonight
    Walk the streets for money
    You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right

    Roxanne
    You don't have to put on the red light

    I loved you since I knew you
    I wouldn't talk down to you
    I have to tell you just how I feel
    I won't share you with another boy
    I know my mind is made up
    So put away your make up
    Told you once I won't tell you again
    It's a bad way

    Roxanne
    You don't have to put on the red light
    Roxanne
    You don't have to put on the red light

    Unfortunately Howard doesn't hear the lyrics. They can't compete with the voices in his head. Any time he tries to sing along with a song, he invariably gets the words wrong. He would probably screw up the words to "Happy Birthday".

    That being said, the lyrics to that song are eerily accurate in describing Howard and Beth's relationship. Or should I say "arrangement".

    Her eyes are empty and soulless...just like her elongated massive head.

    Words from another blonde, ageing, scrawny whore

    Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me
    I think they're O.K.
    If they don't give me proper credit
    I just walk away

    They can beg and they can plead
    But they can't see the light, that's right
    'Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
    Is always Mister Right, 'cause we are

    [Chorus:]

    Living in a material world
    And I am a material girl
    You know that we are living in a material world
    And I am a material girl

    Some boys romance, some boys slow dance
    That's all right with me
    If they can't raise my interest then I
    Have to let them be

    Some boys try and some boys lie but
    I don't let them play
    Only boys who save their pennies
    Make my rainy day, 'cause they are

    [chorus]

    Living in a material world (material)
    Living in a material world
    [repeat]

    Boys may come and boys may go
    And that's all right you see
    Experience has made me rich
    And now they're after me, 'cause everybody's

    [chorus]

    A material, a material, a material, a material world

    Living in a material world (material)
    Living in a material world

    It makes me cry that even with easy chords it sounds shitty when I play it.
